This is not a western mountain. It is an east coast resort, and we all know you can't compare east coast slopes to those out west. If you want powder and bowls head west. If you want something close by with very few lift lines, (except on Holidays on the north side - and then only 15-20 minutes) then Tremblant is for you. We will not ski anywhere else on the East coast. It is close, good skiing, and a great venue for Apres-ski. We are a family of 4...there is enough activites for everyone. Green trails for my new snowboarder, blacks for the advanced skier, rails and jumps for the teenager, blues and a nice fire for me. There are non-skiing activities as well. We have been snow mobiling, 4 wheeling, dog sledding and ice skating. What more do you need?? The night life is unparallel. Many restaurants and bars to choose from in the village or a short drive to St. Jovite. For the younger set, the bars are open very late. Give it go!
