Have your Team Climb the Next Mountain at Mont-Tremblant
Looking for a good company retreat to motivate your staff and reenergized them, you can look to Mont-Tremblant in the Laurentian mountain range in southern Quebec for inspiration. The Laurentian Mountains cover 22,000 square miles of territory, just north of Montreal in the southern part of Quebec. The mountains forming the Quebec portion of the Canadian Shield in the area partially bounded by the Ottawa, St. Lawrence, and Saguenay rivers. It is one of the oldest mountain regions in the world and consists of Precambrian rocks (those more than 540 million years old). This natural wonder offers great sceneries that burst with colour through its many mountain peaks, rivers and lakes.
The year-round Tremblant Resort, on the shores of Lake Tremblant, features winter sports, golf courses and a pedestrian shopping village. North of town is Mont-Tremblant National Park that offers forested hiking trails and lakes for canoeing, along with winter activities. Mont-Tremblant’s summit sits at 875 meters (2871 feet) and offers a breathtaking view of the Laurentians. The ski area covers 305 hectares (755 acres) and includes 102 ski trails on 4 distinct slopes for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
Mont-Tremblant is broken down into three villages the Ski Resort called the Pedestrian Village, the downtown area and the Le Village that is 2 miles away from the resort. The Pedestrian Village’s architecture resembles an European ski town that gets its charm from its many colourful buildings, cozy inns, boutiques, bistros and art galleries.
