Surrounded by the Laurentian Mountains, high-level athletes or anyone who is an athlete at heart can experience here the workout of their life. The beautiful Lake Tremblant, the relaxed atmosphere of the pedestrian village and the mountain itself make Tremblant a veritable playground for endurance and cross-training enthusiasts. With hundreds of activities available, our little European inspired village is definitely a dream place to stay and train.

Triathletes especially appreciate our destination for the swimming, cycling and running facilities:

Swimming

The 11 km long Lake Tremblant, at the base of the mountain, is a perfect place for swimming with water access open from June to early September and a marked, secure swimming course. The clear waters of Lac Tremblant are usually pretty cool, but offer an optimal temperature in August. The Centre Regional d’Information IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant, annexed to the Beach and Tennis Club, is a great asset to anyone training for an IRONMAN event. The service gives access to maps of the route, the temperature of the lake, lockers and other personalized services and is open 7 days a week, from June 3rd to September 5th, 2017.

Road cycling

In our picturesque hilly area, cyclists can borrow countless roads crossing the woods and mountains. With the arrival of IRONMAN in Tremblant in 2011, roads were greatly improved and paved with wide shoulders on each side. Marked all season long, the official IRONMAN course is a safe circuit that allows cyclists to discover the natural beauty of Mont-Tremblant’s vast territory and the municipalities of Lake Superior, La Conception and Labelle. We are also fortunate to have in our backyard the Nordet: a bicycle route to Saint-Donat, which, depending on the path taken, can offer nearly 2000 vertical meters!

A new training experience in Tremblant: the very first IRONMAN marked training course in the world!

Thousands of cyclists will now have the chance to ride of a fully marked and maintained permanent training course that will stretch for 90 km along Chemin Duplessis, Montée Ryan and Route 117 all the way to Labelle.

On top of putting safety first, this course offers breathtaking views on Mont-Tremblant’s mountainous landscapes.

This new sports infrastructure will greatly contribute to energize our actual playground. So if you are a cyclist or triathlete, training on this new course is a must this summer!

Running

Runners of all levels can enjoy the quality and variety of trails offered in Tremblant. From the top athlete who’s training for performance to the recreational runner who simply seeks a personal challenge, all can enjoy the natural surroundings and positive energy along the many kilometers of trails. Waterfalls, streams, lakes and lots of greenery line the magnificent span of the famous P’tit Train du Nord path. This former railway became the longest linear park in Canada and welcomes each year the IRONMAN race course.

Besides these three disciplines, a big advantage of training in Tremblant is the wide variety of accessible sports: mountain biking, kayaking, golfing, hiking, skating, tennis, etc. Practicing more than one sport works other muscle groups without it feeling much like a grueling workout. For example, the paddle boarding on the lake is excellent for the abdominal and back muscles. Trail running on the other hand, especially in the mountains, is awesome at working power and stability.
