The Slopes

The ski area of 654 acres that covers most of the mountain is divided into four separate sectors. The Versant Sud (South Side) is the prime face of the massif, overlooking the village and Lake Tremblant, and has a distinct eastern linked sub-sector called Versant Soleil (Sunny Side). The back side of the mountain is the Versant Nord (North Side) sector, which again has a further linked sub-sector known as Versant Edge (The Edge). 

Of the ski area's 94 trails, 15 are loaded.

With the entire mountain face forested, skiing and riding through the trails in this pretty landscape imparts one the impression of being surrounded by parkland, which is exactly what this resort is in many ways.

The ski terrain can be broadly classified into Easy – 22%; difficult – 34%; more difficult – 42%; and Extreme – 15%.


Mont Tremblant's ski slopes include an area on the South Side (The Versant Sud ) of the mountain dedicated to beginners. This slope has two Magic Carpet lifts, which are easy for beginners to use and make them more comfortable while learning to ski.
