Update – Season opening postponed

UPDATE – November 24, 2015

The slightly cooler temperatures of recent days have encouraged our snow making operations. We’ve enjoyed good conditions during the day with the thermometer sometimes reaching the -10? Celsius mark at night! Current weather allows us at this time to produce snow 24 hours a day. We are therefore pleased to announce that the opening is still scheduled for Thursday, where skiers and snowboarders will be welcomed at the Express Gondola as of 8:30 a.m. They can then access the Crête and P’tit Bonheur ski runs and the Lowell Thomas lift. And that is just beginning; our teams will work twice as hard in the coming days to provide more slopes for the weekend. We invite you to check snow conditions page to stay up-to-date on the latest trail openings.

UPDATE – November 20, 2015

Our teams remain on constant alert to start up our powerful snowmaking system as soon as conditions are favorable. In recent days we have worked on many slopes and the future is bright with colder temperatures ahead. In fact, several favorable snowmaking windows are emerging, including one in the night from Friday to Saturday which is certain to be a very productive evening. We are well positioned to deliver skiable terrain for next Thursday!

November 16, 2015

Owing to poor snowmaking temperatures and weather forecasts, we’ve decided to push back the opening date of our 2015-16 ski season.

The Tremblant Mountain Operations team is poised to maximize on cold snaps and snowmaking opportunities between now and opening date – Thursday November 26 – when we will welcome skiers and riders at 8:30 a.m.

Despite Mother Nature’s challenges, we are confident and enthusiastic about launching the ski season on November 26. For our very latest snowmaking news, check back for updates to this blog post.

    This must have been a hard decision to make, and I applaud you for doing so. You are ensuring that the quality of the Tremblant experience is the best you can deliver. I think that in the long run, doing so will benefit yourselves in that you won’t have disappointed guests.

    Can’t wait for Christmas week; we’re already booked!

        We will! Becawzzz…
        We’re going to The B E S T ski hill on the East Coast, so we KNOW we’ll be getting the BEST conditions available!

        And even if the snow’s a little light, it’s still Tremblant! It still has wonderful restaurants, cool stuff to do, and is beautiful from St. Jo to the downtown, let alone the resort. If there’s not enough snow, we’ll do some of the other things you offer up in the region.

        We’re going to have a blast b/c we’re going to be at Mt. Tremblant!
        Joyeux Noel! (Hope this Yank got that right. 🙂

      Hi Andy, Our first priority is the 24h of Tremblant event. With the colder temps forecasted next week, it looks positive for December 4-6th.

    I’m thinking of booking to come on the weekend of 4-6th November, how much of the resort will be open then that won’t be taken over by the 24hr event? Will there be many slopes open for people not competing in the event?

      Hi Will, the 24h event happens mostly at the base of the slopes on the South side (except for the race start which happens at the base of the village). Our plan is to have both mountain faces open by then, so those slopes will be event-free.

      Hi Daniel, amount of trails can be tricky to determine at this time of year. But with the cooler weather announced for this week, we should be able to get a lot done before opening day.

    Hi, on opening of the season (nov 26th so far), will the North side also be open (chairs &parking) ?

    Planning to go ski Friday the 27th and want to know if we can start from the North side.

    Thanks

      Hi Pierre, the plan is to have both sides open for the 26th and weather conditions seem on track. However, Mother Nature can be fickle, so chairs in operation will be announced the day before or morning of. Thanks for understanding.

    Will the student season pass work on the opening weekend? I know it usually doesn’t but since you’re opening 1 week later I am wondering if this still applies. Thanks

      Hi Jamie, Snowmaking has been pretty much non-stop! We’re looking at warm weather on Friday, but we have a good base on a few runs and Friday night temperatures will be good for us for Saturday.

    Hi there, Are you still open? Could you please an update on the conditions? Are you ok for the weekend and for the 24h Tremblant event? Can we ski on the Dec 6th if we are not participating in the 24h race?
