Mont Tremblant gets a $17M Facelift

The Alterra Mountain Company that owns the Mont Tremblant ski resort announced Monday it will spend $17 million in renovations and upgrades at the site. The renovations would include replacing the Lowell Thomas chairlift, renovating and expanding summit chalet Le Grand Manitou, creating new glades, renovating La Fourchette du Diable on the North Side base, as well as other upgrades.

The Grand Manitou will see its footprint increased to showcase windows, 400 additional seats and a completely reinvented food service area.

Five new glades covering a 50-acre area will extend Tremblant’s skiable terrain to 101 trails across 715 acres. Locals have been skiing these glades for years and comment that there is nothing new here!

The fixed-grip triple Lowell Thomas chairlift will be replaced with a Dopplelmayr detachable quad boosting capacity by 600 skiers/hr.

Snowmaking capacity will be increased with the acquisition of 31 snow guns, and five new glades covering a 50-acre area that will extend Tremblant’s skiable terrain to 101 trails.

Much of the work is expected to be completed in time for the 2018-19 ski season. The Alterra Mountain Company has introduced a new season pass for 26 resorts called the Ikon Pass for 27 resorts and that includes access to Mont Tremblant.
