In the past, the only thing Tremblant travelers might have cared about was the winter weather. If the powder was falling, which it does fairly regularly from November to April, that was enough (and even if it wasn’t the resort has extensive snowmaking capacities). Now, thanks to the construction of the pedestrian village and expansion of existing facilities in the 90s, Mont Tremblant has become a year-round destination, and there really isn’t a bad time to visit—just different times. Obviously, if you want to ski, winter is still the season to venture north. But if you’re interested in hiking, camping or fishing at the nearby national park, or just pampering and relaxation at the resort, the rest of the year is wide open. In recent years, the resort’s management has emphasized summer visiting, organizing a full program of events from jazz festivals to stargazing, and the period from May to September is by far the most pleasant weather-wise. With long days in the 70s and comfortable nights right around 60, there is no excuse for not taking advantage of the great outdoors. April and October are definitely the lull times, with the mercury dropping fast, but none of the snow coming down.
