Overview

Mont Tremblant (Trembling Mountain) is home to the Mount Tremblant Ski Area, it is also a summer resort. The mountain is also located in the Parc National du Mont-Tremblant. It is located in a range with other 800meter peaks with trails cut by the ski area and the national park to connect them. Since Tremblant is a ski area, the summit is cluttered with services for skiers. The main building (Grand Manitou) services include: a restaurant, shopping, and a phone. There is also a ski patrol hut on the summit and a cell phone tower; I had full service the entire time. On a false summit not far from the main summit, there is a 12 meter high 360 degree observation tower. In the summer a gondola service ($) is offered.
