Tremblant (formerly Mont Tremblant) has undergone major changes in the last few years and has emerged as the premier resort in Quebec. Tremblant is located in the beautiful Laurentians northwest of Montreal, a popular vacation destination for both Europeans and North Americans. The area abounds with pristine natural lakes and tree-covered mountains, and the nearby town of Ste.-Jovite provides a variety of trendy shopping and entertainment opportunities. Tremblant prides itself on being a true four-season resort, and offers championship golf and an extensive base village with lodging, entertainment, and popular eating and drinking establishments.
Tremblant offers outstanding skiing with a variety of terrain, but is known primarily as an expert skier’s mountain. Eight chairlifts serve 2,131 feet of vertical and runs as long as three and a half miles. Cross-country skiing is very popular on Tremblant’s ninety-five kilometers of trails, and the resort offers a park and half-pipe for snowboarders. Ice skating and dog sledding are also available nearby.
Tremblant doesn’t slow down at all in the summer. A new eighteen-hole championship golf course opened in August 1995 and the resort sponsors blues and magic festivals during the summer, as well as offering mountain bike riding and a beach and tennis club at nearby Lake Tremblant. The surrounding Laurentians area is a popular and varied summertime destination dotted with small resort towns and lakes.
The ski village at the base of Mont Tremblant offers a variety of bars and restaurants which are quite popular during the ski season. The town of Mont Tremblant, two miles away, is small and quiet, but St.-Jovite, a ten-minute drive away, attracts plenty of skiers every night and boasts a wide range of eating establishments, discos, and taverns.
Mont Tremblant is seventy-nine miles north of Montreal via Autoroute 15 and Route 117 north. Bypass Ste.-Jovite, turn right on Montee Ryan and continue for five miles. Doval International Airport in Montreal is served by major U.S. and Canadian airlines. Bus service and car rentals are available at the airport.
Tremblant does not maintain any employee housing, so most workers live in Mont Tremblant or Ste.-Jovite. There are many rentals available in town at a wide range of prices. Shared housing is quite popular, and the resort will help employees find potential roommates.
Tremblant is the largest employer in the area both winter and summer. Non-Canadians must comply with any Canadian visa requirements (see the first page of the Canada listings for more visa information). Since Tremblant is located in French-speaking Quebec but attracts many international visitors, almost all employees must be bilingual in French and English.
