Tremblant is worth the drive , the ambiance, vibe and the hill are fine, avoid school break periods for both Quebec and Ontario provinces and you will be fine . skip St Annes ...boring . If you do that way DO Massif !
My brother and his family enjoyed Tremblant when they went in the spring. They liked the mountain, although they don’t look for really difficult terrain. They enjoyed the base village. They definitely think it was worth the drive, and they are near Philly.
i'm looking to visit tremblant easter weekend. hoping for soft snow and lots of booze, so need accommodations walking distance to the village? anyone ever stay at the condos that border the village? trying to get a sense of what the walk is like into the village. any info on accommodations would be appreciated.
I skied there once....I enjoyed it and had a fun day. Not the steepest skiing, but it was a nice mtn, and unique in that you can ski three faces of it. Village is a bit commercialized but we had a couple beers over there and grabbed some food one night and it was good. Stayed one night in the village cause I had Marriott points, then spent a couple nights in a condo that I found on Groupon, located in "old Tremblant" which is a couple miles away from the resort village. I liked that area, there were a couple ski shops and a few restaurants, generally quiet...but the area surrounding the outskirts of the resort is pretty nice. Snowed the whole time which helped. The drive up there from NY is cool...after you pass Montreal the highway you take most of the way to Tremblant has many small ski areas right off the highway, totally visible.
I spent the long new years weekend there this year. It's like Stratton, only on a larger scale and much more of an international vibe. Nice ride that takes you over the village and right to the base area. Plenty to do at the end of the day, I recommend eating in town if you want a real meal though.
The skiing was excellent when I was there, especially on the nord side.
