Overview

With a colourful, traffic-free centre built in the style of an historic French town, Tremblant (or Mont Tremblant) in Quebec is very convenient for British families wanting to ski in Canada – flights to Montreal from London take around 7hrs, then there’s a transfer of only 90mins and, on your doorstep, low mountains that won’t give youngsters altitude problems. Everything is within an easy stroll, and the ski school provides GPS armbands so you know exactly where the kids are, with their daily movements charted on a website.
 
Tremblant is also an increasingly popular destination in summer, when the lush surroundings – including the outdoors paradise of Mont Tremblant National Park – make for amazing views.

Things to do with kids in Tremblant

Enjoy more than 260 hectares of skiable terrain and total of nearly 80km of trails, roughly a quarter of them beginner, a third intermediate and half expert. The north side of the resort has the best runs. Experienced snowboarders and skiers have access to a 7-acre extreme Snow Park.
 
Head for the snow-tubing park with its 8 trails. Other winter activities include snowshoeing, dog-sledding, snowmobiling, horse-riding across snow-covered fields, and ice skating. The year-round Aquaclub La Source has indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs.
 
In summer, try out alpine luge, take the gondola up for wonderful views of the Laurentians, play at the Pirates Water Park, have a round of mini-golf, hire bikes or mountain-bikes, raft down the Rouge River and ride horses through the Laurentian Mountains. There’s also bungy-trampoline, paintball playgrounds, an aerial forest adventure, and two very good golf courses.
 
Head into the stunning Mont Tremblant National Park for watersports and cruises, quad-biking, calèche rides, via ferrata, canoeing, hiking and camping.
 
Take a 10- or 20-minute panoramic helicopter ride to see the Diable River, Lake Ouimet, Gray Rocks, Iroquois Falls and other local scenery.

Eat

All kinds of cuisine is available in Tremblant, from Savoie to Italian, and not all of it is expensive, although it’s also worth checking out restaurants and cafés in the original village or at nearby St-Jovite. Quebec specialities include toutière, a meat pie made with pork and sometimes other meats, including bison or deer, and poutine – chips with fried cheese curds, served with gravy – which is now served all over Canada.

When to go to Tremblant

The ski season in Mont Tremblant generally lasts from late November to early April. For family holidays in the summer, think mid-June to mid-Sept.

Cost

As a world-famous and award-winning ski resort, Tremblant isn’t cheap, especially for family holidays involving a transatlantic flight. That said, one you’re there it compares favourably with some high-end European resorts due to the exchange rates.
