Great trip report. I last skied Tremblant in 2000. We stayed on the South and had a great time. I do not think there was any housing on the North yet. We were there the end of March and we lucked out with some warmth. I have skied Tremblant in similar condtions to your trip. The place can be cold and brutal. I would still head back.
Just to clarify : THERE IS NO Slopeside HOUSING AT THE BASE ON THE NORD .
Our Auberge is about 2 miles from the NORD base lodge an easy drive , we park right next to the lodge . It is low density , retro and easy, quick access. There are many places to stay on the NORD side but they are all located Auberge s or in some cases rentals .
Gorgo : There are several closeby easier hills toofor the Mrs if u r up there a couple of days . EG Mont Blanc about 1200 or so vert is right there by St Jovite another great ski town about 5 miles from Tremblant , and there are many , many others too .
OK So 4 of our happy assed group of Retired Extremely Dangerous ski whackjobs loaded up the SUV with some good booze and muchies and headed out for one of our thrice yearly excursions to Disneyland North , er Tremblant that is .
