Full review

- the only real ski in ski out resort in Tremblant is the Fairmont
- watch out for weather changes, the first day it was 28F but the next two went as low as -14F
- the staff is very helpful and friendly but the boarders and skiiers can be extremely rude
- if a few runs are closed, always ask a staff member the conditioins of the run you are going to(we had to hike up a run since its continuation was closed)
- try not to go on Saturdays (crazy lift lines)
- the lift tickets are cheap, but dining in the village is ridiculous
- the skiing is definately worth the price of the tickets
- most runs are fine for beginners, but not for first time skiiers or boarders
- the powder there is just as good as in Colorado or in Utah
- language barrier is not a problem at all
