Mountain ops: countdown to opening day!

Tremblant on its way to an exceptional season start!

With 29 cm of fresh fallen snow at Tremblant over the past days, excitement is at an all-time high among slide sport fans! The wait will soon be over for skiers and riders as the slide season officially opens at Tremblant this Thursday November 23, at 8:30 am. The mountain operations team plans to open about a dozen trails, with one summit-to-base route on both the North and South sides. The open trails will cover a total of 107 acres of skiable terrain. Among the trails already prepared for the opening are the runs used for the 24h Tremblant. This will definitely be one of the finest editions of our major charitable event!

See our interview with Tremblant Snowmaking Supervisor Richard Lyng: 

Furthermore, snow park enthusiasts will be really pleased to know that many park features will be available as early as November 23rd in the Progression Park on the South side, including at least one medium size jump!
