So you typed “Things to do Mt Tremblant” into the ole Google machine and landed here. Bonjour ! After seven years’ worth of visits across every season, and now with a dog in the mix, I’m thrilled to offer you what might just be the most informative, comprehensive collection of Mont-Tremblant content available all in one place — except, perhaps, the Tremblant site itself. (But they won’t give you the juicy bits and the top pro tips, so read on.)

Things to do Mt Tremblant: activities
The only season we haven’t visited Mont-Tremblant is spring, but just about everything you’ll find here should still apply. The main difference is that spring skiing will likely be in effect and you may not have to bring your heated ski socks and extra-extra-warm mitts.
What with all that snowfall and all, it may be hard to believe that summertime is actually Tremblant’s busiest season. It’s true! Expect more crowds and patio vibes spilling into the (pedestrian-only) streets and enjoy the cobblestone-laden footpaths throughout the resort. For your summertime planning, these two posts cover everything from free things to do in Tremblant, like its stunning cycling and running path network to some of our most memorable activities, like Tonga Lumina:
You’ll also be glad to hear that the open-air cabriolet has longer hours in the summer months and is a much more pleasurable ride from the top of the village down to the bottom, and vice versa, without the winter wind whipping your face like the sadist it is.
And while I refuse to play favourites when it comes to the best time to visit Mont-Tremblant, winter holds a special place my heart because it’s where I learned to embrace winter. It’s where my kids and I learned to ski. It’s where my undiagnosed Seasonal Affective Disorder came to die. When it comes to winter, we’ve tried just about every free and paid activity offered both within the Tremblant village and into the outskirts. This post will help you decide what to add to your winter itinerary:

Things to do Mt Tremblant: accommodations
We certainly haven’t stayed at all of the available Mont-Tremblant accommodations yet, but we’re getting there! My ultimate Hotel Mont-Tremblant guide is a one-stop-shop that provides an overview of each of the properties we’ve visited and outlines the average nightly cost, the website and phone number for each, the general location (both within the village and those that are outside of it), plus my topline thoughts on not only who’s best-suited for each property but also the ideal season for a given hotel, chalet or condo.
I also have links throughout that post to feature posts that I’ve got on the blog for many of the properties, including:
- Sommet des Neiges
- Chateau Beauvallon
- Le Westin Tremblant
- Holiday Inn Mont-Tremblant
- Fairmont Tremblant
- Tremblant Les Eaux
- Les Manoirs
If you’d rather consider a luxury Mont-Tremblant chalet, this post is a must-read.
Things to do Mt Tremblant: restaurants
This is always a tough post to keep updated, so I’m thrilled to report that at time of writing, there is only ONE restaurant in the pedestrian village we haven’t been able to properly list. It’s included in my Mont-Tremblant restaurants post — I just can’t tell you what the food is like.
Things to do Mt Tremblant: the casino
I’m not even a gambler and I’m telling you — you’ve got to check out the Mont-Tremblant Casino! Accessible from the main village using its own dedicated gondola, it’s so much more than just penny slots and Black Jack. There’s an awesome restaurant and it rocks a fun night club vibe. There’s even a DJ and dancing some nights!
Here are two posts to help convince you to go, even if you give yourself a $40 gambling max like I do:
Mont-Tremblant — with dogs!
Now that you’re definitely excited to plan your own Mont-Tremblant getaway, before you consider kennelling your dog to take this trip, I’m going to point you in the direction of my road trip with dogs series. That’s right, you can actually take your dog with you to Tremblant!
There are dog-friendly hotels and this post includes not only our experience in Tremblant with our poodle puppy but also other cities to add to your short list, like Ottawa and Lake Placid.
Before you go…
Since it’s pretty clear that you’re a big fan of the outdoors, in case you landed on this post because you’re a ski family — or want to become one — I thought I’d add a couple of other posts that you might find helpful:
- How to teach kids to ski and other skiing tips
- Everything you need to know about the IKON Pass
- Tremblant is just the beginning! Consider doing a Quebec road trip
Merely as an extra bonus post, Camp Tremblant will walk you through one of our earliest wintertime blog posts when we had much younger kids and no dog. All of the info is elsewhere in the other posts I’ve shared above, but in case you just can’t get enough…there you go. Want even more? Head to Tremblant.ca.
DISCLAIMER: I refuse to add up the many, many dollars we’ve spent over the years at and around Mont-Tremblant to bring you this kind of content. Yes, along the way, we have also been gifted experiences to help facilitate reviews but — rest assured — we have poured so much of our own resources into this incredible fact-finding mission, too. Opinions always remain my own.
