yeah, it icy when i was there too. i stopped off 1/2 way down a black trail to re-tighten my straps (with my knees down and facing up the mountain), and I couldnt stop sliding even with my board digging partially on the ground. the conditions are very similar last year when i was there too. from what i heard, tremblant gets that icy deep freeze in early january, then it gets better after that.

I had such a good time this past weekend at Tremblant. I am def. going to come back. Yeah, some parts were icy but nothing like the mountains around me. I primarily stayed on the south side of the mountain mainly because of the Gondola. It was too damn cold to take a quad. Good food everywhere we went. This trip exceeded my expectations.

I was there this past weekend as well! I did the opposite though; I stayed on the North side most of the time. It was so much fun on Saturday riding in the woods. The powder was fresh and soft, it was unbelievable.

We ate at Fat Mardis on Saturday and Casey on Sunday. Food were exceptional. I will definitely go back!

Tremblant can be very very cold. It was gorgeous fresh -5C and 22cm last friday, but it got flattened and frozen on Sat/Sunday when temp dropped to -25C. Definitely bring layers, good gloves and socks.

Lots of flat areas, so either keep your speed up or bring a pole. This mountain is much more skier friendly. Lots of moguls or bumpy areas (again, great for skiers) - can be fun if you like that sort of thing. I had fun in them on Friday, not so much on Saturday when everything for harder and my board got slow from the cold.


Also, LCBO is SAQ in Quebec.

Very english friendly. I only know how to say merci, and I got by. French is also very easy to figure out. We stopped in Montreal to eat, and the menu was all in French. I managed to understand it and order something I like.

I was just there last weekend staying at the marriot I snowboarded monday and tuesday. The conditions were not insane but I still had a really awesome time. I ate at casey's a couple times. Even with shitty conditions its still a great resort and a great hill for eastern canada in my humble opinion!

I want to get out again. Anyone down for getting a massive group on the go in april?

I might be interested - but only after I get a trekking pole. The place is built for skiers - lots of flat bits.
