Major investment announcement at Tremblant - $17 million, includes replacement of the Lowell Thomas triple

Recommended Posts

Just received by email a media invitation ...

Mont Tremblant Resort invites media representatives to attend a press conference March 12 regarding new major investments.

The event is starting at 10am so sometime afterwards we will know what’s coming. I’ll be sure to share here when the press release comes out. The announcement will be webcast live on Facebook here :

Has anyone heard any rumours? I’m sure a new lift is in the works. Haven’t had any new lifts since the Gondola was installed in 1998 and the Soleil was installed as a result on Versant Soleil. The Destination Soleil gondola does not count as it operates on a limited schedule and doesn't serve any skiing.

I would expect more year-round access type projects to attract people in the off season, in addition to hopefully some improvements to the various lifts. Maybe they'll find a way to stick some more hotels and condos in there too.

$17 million in investments.

  • Replacement of the Lowell Thomas (fixed grip triple) with a detachable Quad, built by Doppelmayr.
  • Expansion of the Grand Manitou, adding 400 more seats, and more windows. (photos show an additional floor will be added).
  • Some new trails (glades) will be added on the North side, bringing the total trail count to 101.
  • Expansion of the tent-style area of the North Side Fourchette du Diable into a permanent addition.
  • 31 new snow guns.
  • New snow groomer.

--- Other improvements here and there in the village and on mountain, which include improvements to the washrooms and facilities in the Chalet des Voyageurs, but the above are the major points.

"Reinvented foodservice area" in the Le Grand Manitou! More glades will be nice as the Edge is not always open.  The plans seem very ambitious. The window to build the new summit lodge is pretty tiny. Like May till October. Good luck with that.

      With KSL aka Alterra's acquisition of Tremblant, comes the new Ikon pass, competitor to the Epic pass. Basically, loyal Tremblant passholders and families are getting screwed with the 2018-19 season rates because:
      1. Tremblant eliminated the Latitude and Sublime (the sublime "replacement" is more expensive and with more blackout days)
      2. Ikon passes must be purchassed in USD. So you get to pay the fluctuating exchange rate on limited pass options. This one I find particularly offensive because it is ridiculous for Canadian customers to be paying USD to ski on a Canadian mountain.
      3. Sure there are more mountains included in your pass. If you can afford to get to them.
      4. No more free hot chocolate or other perks for families. You now pay an additional $75 for those perks.
      5. The children's pass also goes up in price.
      Expect a mass exodus of longtime Tremblant passholders who can no longer afford to ski there. I'm sure Bromont and the Charlevoix area ski resorts will welcome them with open arms.

      Full details here:
      What are your thoughts. No doubt we will have to wait till the Fall or perhaps the following season to see what kind of improvements on mountain there may be. But in the meantime,
      What would you like to see improved at Tremblant for the skiing experience?
      -Lowell Thomas replaced with High Speed Quad.
      -Duncan Express replaced with six-pack lift.
      -More development on the Versant Soleil.
      For Blue Mountain, they already have robust infrastructure with 4 six-pack lifts and additional quads, so not sure what could be realistically improved there other than possible terrain expansion, which I am not sure is even possible.
