Tremblant is proud to inaugurate a new sculpture by Laurentian artist, Mathieu Isabelle, at Promenade Deslauriers in the heart of the pedestrian village.

Through Alterra Mountain Company’s Art Installation initiative to promote each of its resorts unique character by financing original public art installations, Station Mont Tremblant collaborated with local sculptor Mathieu Isabelle to bring to life a piece which resonates the resort’s values and slogan, “Take me to the top”. The project illustrates the metaphorical climb, open spaces and accomplishment, whilst underlining Tremblant’s eco-tourism efforts over the past years by using durable materials combined with pieces of recycled metals taken from snow guns and chairlifts.

The sculptor, Laurentian born artist Mathieu Isabelle, creates figures of impressive stature that aim to amaze and impress viewers. A man of conviction, he has followed his passion towards a study of the human experience and all of its complexity. Through his art, he hopes to encourage people to come face to face with the intricacies that make them unique and challenge them to live out their full potential. “We are all connected by our personal will to fully realize ourselves” says Mathieu. “The closer I got to forming the silhouette of the figure, the more energy I felt to surpass myself and to trust in the vision laying beyond the horizon. This sculpture, which stands proudly at the base of the mountain, is as serene as it is full of life”.

Tremblant is proud to showcase the work of a local artist in the Promenade Deslauriers, a quaint section of the pedestrian village where a small amphitheater hosts musicians and actors presenting concerts all summer, a place dedicated to the arts. The Promenade meanders through levels of stone and creates a relaxed atmosphere antithetical to the fast pace and buzzing energy of the Place Saint-Bernard and rue des Remparts. Illuminated, the sculpture will be the centerpiece of the Promenade Deslauriers and will be admired from all angles day and night.
