Summertime Bugs

We are visiting in late July through August 5th and I heard there are many mosquito's and "black flies".

Does anyone have experience the summer?

Also: How crowded does it get in that time period?

will reservations be required at restaurants?

Thank you,

It so happens that this is precisely the summer time-frame that I have been at Tremblant every year for the last decade. Have never had a problem with black flies. Mosquitos are present all over the eastern half of North America, but--at least in my experience--aren't particularly bad at Tremblant. Walking in the forest or playing golf are the times when I have noticed mosquitos (mostly late afternoon/early evening) and a light spray of insect repellent generally kept them at bay. I have rarely encountered mosquitos in the village.

Every year obviously can be different (particularly as the amount of rainfall, the temperature and the wind speed influences the number of mosquitos and the degree to which you may notice them).

Tremblant can be lively--but not overly crowded-- in late July/early August, especially on week-ends, when there are free concerts. Restaurant reservations normally are not required, but, in the better restaurants, they are advisable, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. If your group is large, or if you have an interest in a specific dinner hour or a particular restaurant, reservations also would be a good idea so as not to be disappointed.
