Tremblant is Eastern Canada's best known resort and has been since 1938. The first resort to open in Canada and the second in North America, it is located in the picturesque scenery of the Laurentian Mountains, an easy drive from Montreal. The resort has been developed to a world class standard by new owners in the 1990s and has subsequently won the title of 'Best Resort in the East' in North American ski magazine reader surveys, taking the title from US resorts to the south. Since being purchased by Canadian ski and golf resort development company Intrawest in 1991 the resort has been virtually rebuilt from scratch and has benefited from a 10 year investment program totalling (almost) a breath taking 1 billion Canadian dollars (approx. 750 million US dollars). This has transformed the old 'Mont Tremblant' in to a 'Four Season Destination Resort' with a brilliantly well designed pedestrianised resort, successfully themed on traditional Quebec architectural style, including smoothly cobbled streets. Every part of the holiday experience has clearly been carefully considered and designed in to the new Tremblant so that, basically, everything you need is there, and more, and it's all a short walk from your accommodation whether in the resort or on to the lifts and up the mountain. Add to the design the unique atmosphere of this part of North America, where French Canadian "Joie de vivre" meets North American service and value standards, and the result is one of the world's best mountain resorts.
One of Canada's best known ski areas located in one of the world's oldest mountain ranges and within the world's densest network of night skiing, although it does not offer any itself. Over the past 20 years Tremblant has undergone massive and ongoing redevelopment thanks to huge investment by owners Intrawest, who also own Whistler in the west. Rated number one in Eastern North America by readers of Ski magazine every year for more than a decade.
