Mont Tremblant 2011

Mont Tremblant is most well-known as Quebec’s premier winter resort, but it’s a great place to visit in the summer as well. In July of 2011 I spent three days at Station Mont Tremblant , courtesy of Intrawest Resorts. Together with 3 other travel journalists, I got to explore the local area and indulge in all sorts of activities.

A helicopter ride over the area introduced me to the magnificent patchwork of blue lakes and lush green mountains. I went ziplining, mountain biking and even went down the mountain on the summer luging course. A boat tour on Lake Tremblant provided us with interesting historic background of the area and a visit to the old village of Tremblant allowed me to connect with local artists and merchants on the Saturday morning market.

Several gourmet meals introduced us to the culinary expertise on offer at Mont Tremblant, and a visit to the top of the mountain provided a stunning 360 degree view of the surrounding landscapes. The evening program included a free concert on Place St-Bernard and fireworks fittingly capped off the Canada Day celebrations.
