We had never been to Tremblant and with limited guidance chose to stay at the Fairmont -- picked the Gold floor for the convenience of easy breakfast, apres ski snacks, etc. We were delighted to find that the hotel and the floor exceeded all of our expectations. We dropped our car with the valet -- who immediately took our skis to the ski area and guided us to the Gold floor for check-in. The Gold floor staff were efficient while welcoming, friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and guidance for signing up for ski lessons, etc. The location can't be beat - ski in, ski out - and having the ski valet services took all hassle away from a ski vacation. As much as we loved the skiing, we REALLY loved the huge jacuzzi / hot tub area slope-side, complete with friendly bar service. We enjoyed live music and cocktails in the lounge area two evenings, while eating dinner outside of the hotel. Being a pedestrian village, we never touched our car until departure which made the long weekend even more luxurious and relaxing. The Gold floor breakfast and apres ski food were fabulous -- too many delicious options to note! We will absolutely, positively return next year.
