Mont Tremblant 2/19/19 - 2/21/19

Conditions were cold and crowded.  After 2 runs we decide to take a break till things warmed up a bit and the crowds at the base spread out.  


Snow was nice, chalky and edgeable.  It warmed up after lunch so I headed back out to do some recon of the the mountain, since it was my first time here to figure out where I wanted to ski the next two days.

Glades off of the Edge quad.

More glades

Narrow bump run to finish out the day.

Wednesday morning started off extremely cold, 10 below zero, but temps were forcast to get up to 20 by afternoon, so we took our time getting breakfast and getting ready.  Crowds today were much less than the previous day.  



SkiMax racing by me on Algonquin trail, a nice long and wide beginner trail.  I had to go into a full tuck to get far enough past her to be able to get my camera out to get some pictures.

Picture of the top of Tremblant with another ski area in the background, taken from the top of L’Edge quad.  There are several smaller ski areas visible from the top of the mountain.

Various gladed areas on the north side of the mountain.  The crowds were minimal here vs the south side where the base village is located.  

Another long narrow bump run.  This one had many patches of ice between moguls, so you had to choose your line cautiously.

Typical view when skiing with my youngest daughter.  She likes to go straight down without turning, only using a snowplow yo control her speed.

A day at Tremblant isn’t complete without having a Beavertail!

A powder day is definitely on the menu for tomorrow with tonight’s  forecast calling for 3-5 inches with temperatures approaching freezing for our final day here.

We woke up this morning to a fresh few inches at the base.  The gondola line was the longest so far on our trip with a 25 - 30 minute wait.  When we arrived at the summit it was considerably more windy than the base.

The snow was packed powder, the best so far.  The visibility... not so much.

Things improved, though, about half way down.

Lots of crowds at both chairs at the north side base area.  By lunchtime, they had dispersed and it was basically ski on, with no wait.  

Time to do some tree skiing after spending the morning with my wife and daughter.

The view from the top of Dynamite, a steep bump run with many snowmaking whales that look like they have been there for quite a while.  Not sure what their plan is for them.

Some cool frozen water waterfalls on the north side.

Not much better than some steep trees with tight lines, and some fresh snow to top things off.

Found these open low angle glades on the south side that required a little hiking to get to, but well worth it!

Which led to this view of one of the smaller neighboring ski areas.

End of the final run heading back to the base village.

And our hotel, the Westin Tremblant.

Cheers to 3 days of quality skiing!

Nice shots , Tremblant can be colder than a well digger's ass but is definitely worth the experience . It sbeen a fav for decades for our group . Prefer the Versant Nord side but all venues there are enjoyable but bring your best cold weather gear ! Spectacular scenery , continental vibe and beaucoup exquisite Quebecois cuisine ! Whats not to like ?

I skied the north face there last year with a cool -30 at the base.  The snow was fantastic in those conditions.

Probably the best pictured reports of Tremblant I have ever seen.
Wonder if theres copper in those waterfalls like the UP of Mich
Quite diverse terrain
Don't know if I'll ever get there but thanks for the report
