Mont-Tremblant National Park, Quebec, Canada

Mont Tremblant National Park is a vast territory offering an abundance of nature; rolling hills, lakes, and rivers. With its six long rivers and over 400 lakes and streams, Mont Tremblant National Park is a canoer’s paradise. It’s a rich amalgam of Quebec’s natural and historic heritages, and the largest and oldest park in the network. This wilderness is so vast that it is home to 40 mammal species, including the wolf. There is also the Via ferrata du Diable, an activity that is a cross between between hiking and climbing, that will let you easily discover one of the park’s immense cliff faces, previously accessible to only experienced rock-climbers. Mont Tremblant National Park is open year-round. Approximately a 1.5-hour drive from Montreal and less than 3 hours from Ottawa.

Parc national du Mont-Tremblant, Québec’s largest park with a surface area of 1,510 km² (580 sq. mi.). This is the land of the wolf, moose, white-tailed deer and the common merganser.

Mont-Tremblant National Park, Quebec, Canada

Between 1872 and 1890, from Ste. Agathe to Mont-Laurier, Father Labelle opened twenty-nine counties and twenty parishes, including those of St. Jovite and St. Faustin in 1879. Altogether more than five thousand French speaking people settled in the surrounding river valleys.

Le P’tit train du Nord, without the existence of proper roads, only a rail line from Montreal could ensure the survival of these newly settled communities. Furthermore, Father Labelle was passionately convinced that the train would forge the way for the development of tourism for “the big city people”. In December 1892, the settlers of St. Jovite heard the first whistling of the P’tit train du Nord.

At the turn of the 20th century, the choice of the Mont-Tremblant Region as a summer playground increased in popularity. Guesthouses, inns and hotels sprouted up all around. The surrounding forest, the pure mountain air and the striking beauty of the scenery drew wealthy Montrealers, as well as Americans and Europeans.

In 1936, Joe Ryan, a young eccentric American millionaire was so taken by the scenery at the summit of Mont Tremblant that he decided to build “the biggest ski centre in the East.” Three years later, Joe Ryan’s dream became a reality. Mont Tremblant Lodge was inaugurated and the ski resort proved to be an immediate success.

With the onset of the 1950’s booming postwar economy, the automobile and a higher standard of living that allowed for more leisure activity, the Laurentians became the playground for middle-class Montrealers and suburbanites.

1991 brought winds of change! Intrawest, the biggest Canadian promoter of alpine resorts announced a significant investment that dramatically thrust the Mont Tremblant Resort into the 21st century. The intuition and vision of Father Labelle and Joe Ryan paid off.

Today, Mont-Tremblant is without a doubt a first-class international vacation destination year-round!

And there’s no need to be an expert to take part: you can rent equipment on site and/or take lessons with one of the ski school’s 450 instructors.

Mont Blanc

Of course, that’s hardly surprising considering its altitude of more than 300 metres (984.25 feet), the second highest peak in the Laurentians, and its 41 trails and 2 snow parks where skiers and boarders can test their limits. At the base of the mountain, there is a giant indoor playground for young children and kids who are less die-hard skiers, to the great delight of the children…and their parents!
