With close to 60 inches of natural snow in the last week, the skiable terrain is now open at 87% with 88 trails and glades!
As of December 25, following the storm of December 23 and 24, we were able to pass the 70 open trails threshold, including many glades, compared to 41 trails at the beginning of last week.

The Edge side welcomed its first skiers and snowboarders of the season last weekend. All our lifts are therefore in operation on the resort and we continue our efforts to open more and more new trails and glades for the last weekend of the year. Our snow making system is currently shut due to warmer temperatures that are coming. We will be able to start it back at the beginning of next week depending on the weather forecast.
The snow accumulation of the past few days allowed us to open all our alpine touring trails. It is now permitted to climb the mountain in the woods in our marked trails, as well as in the Nansen, Beauchemin and Algonquin trails.
What’s Going on This Weekend on the Resort
Don’t miss our Neon New Year’s Eve Party on December 1 as of 7PM in the pedestrian village at the foot of the mountain! On the schedule, muscial atmosphere with invited DJ, torchlight descent and fireworks to kick off the new year. We invite you all to join us and to wear your nicest NEON clothes to celebrate.
The Holidays Celebrations also continue in the pedestrian village until January 8. See the full program on our website.
Update Following the December 23 Storm
We would like to highlight the work and determination our all our teams in the face of December 23’s events. Following a power outage that lasted 20 hours and winds equivalent to a hurricane, our operations worked hard to restore the mountain and deliver all these trails with more than a meter of new snow and exceptional conditions!
Mother Nature put us to the test with a storm worthy of the name! Several team members who have been working at the resort for several years even qualify it as “unheard of”. High winds paralyzed operations, preventing any ski lifts to work. A wet snow seeped into the machinery and the power outage caused everything to freeze. Putting the lifts back in operation has therefore been a colossal task where, in many cases, we had to stop at every chair to defreeze it after having thawed the machinery. We have, among other things, witnessed broken trees, posters and fences lying on the ground, and even a 40-foot container overturned at the top of the Flying Mile lift. Friday afternoon, the Hydro-Québec line on the North side broke down due to a tree on the Duplessis road. In addition to affecting all the lifts on the North side, this power outage affected all the lift terminals on that side and those at the summit, as well as the Grand Manitou. On the morning of December 24, everything was frozen and winds were still very strong on the mountain. However, we managed to open the Cabriolet and Flying Mile lifts. The ski lift maintenance team worked all day assisted by ski patrollers and snow attendants without being able to open more ski lifts to guests. The challenge was focused on the lifts, but it is important to note that all teams has battled the elements to accomplish their tasks and much more! The storm put a brake on our operations for a few days, so we were not able to deliver all the planned trails for these days on the mountain.
We want to thank all these teams, but also our guests who also had to deal with these inconveniences during their visit or stay. This out of our control situation brings its load of challenges and we do our best to ensure your satisfaction at all times when you visit Tremblant. Your safety will always be our priority!
