... a couple of drinks and enjoy the clear warm-ish evening. Sabrina had never had a roasted marshmellow in her life! She said that they were hard to find in Liechtenstein amd when you did come across them they were very expensive.
Blake and I tried our first proper smore! Consisting on Honey Maid wheat crackers, a piece of Hersheys milk chocolate, 2 roasted marshmellows smooshed together like a sandwich. It was deliscious but apparently it takes practice to get ...
Today was the last day we had at Tremblant so we were all sort of committed to going all out. I was getting picked up today and taken to Ottawa so Jenny came up to tremblant with her friend Steph. We met up with them at the bottom of the hill and because Alex was ready we went back up the hill with the girls. I was a bit skeptical about taking the girls up but they both were really comfortable on a board so it was good :) A few ...
... some positive signs I took Alex up the big hill and got him on some of the easier runs on the mountain. Although it took a while to get to the bottom I could tell that he was loving it! We kept going over and over and over and by the end of the day I took him down his first blue run. He was hooked. We went back down to find Matt, Chris and Kellie, but couldn't find them anywhere ...
... what I knew. After about an hour or two they all started to get the hang of it and all made it down the hill.
After a little while one of our new mates from the hostel got to the slope and him and I went for a few runs down big hill. We started off on some of the blues and then quickly moved on to some of the black runs. On our second run we found ourselves at the top of the park. me being ...
... honest underestimated the monumental task of controlling 6 dogs and a someone sitting in a sled In front of me. At the best of times, I can't ski, but try skiing in this scenario... epic fail. Not even 20 seconds in to our journey, I put us in the snow. Alex was covered head to toe and the dogs looked pretty ****** off as they were still trying to keep going but we weren't moving. We got some assistance getting out and carried on.
Another minute in, we landed back in the snow ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairmont Tremblant
Great if you can get the View
I have stayed at other Fairmont properties (Orchid on Big Island) and was a little disappointed w/ this property. I believe it is more geared towards families (e.g., one must request turn down service, plenty of kids & toys in the pool, plus the elevators smelled like mildew near the pool). Keep in mind the entire Tremblant Resort area is Disney World-like and is clearly geared towards kids so this maybe a good thing depending on who you are.
If you dont pony up $15 for the valet, its a hike from the free parking. Although the hotel was 50% empty, they gave us a standard room overlooking a side of the mountain (great way to treat President's Club members, eh?)
The rooms were just average, looked about 10 years old, and the facilities didnt seem that much better than the multitude of neighboring hotels to justify the price differential. Staff wasnt very helpful and the layout of the hotel (concierge on difft level than shops, pools) is not very good as it is crunched into a corner near the foot of the mountain. Restos were not worth it.
Although I think our experience would've been different if we were overlooking the lake, I would stay at the Westin or the Hotel Quintessence if I wanted to go luxury.
We stayed at the Fairmont for only one night, but enjoyed the experience thoroughly. Upon our arrival, a helpful bellboy gave us a map to the self-serve free parking (otherwise the hotel charges $16.00 for valet parking). Although the free parking is quite a distance from the hotel, there is a tram/gondola that takes you to the top of the village where the hotel is located. Upon checking in, we were extremely pleased to learn that we had been upgraded to a suite overlooking the pool and village, due to an overbooking of standard rooms. The hotel itself is very comfortable and charming. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and clean. The staff are all very friendly, and accommodating. The outdoor pool area is nice, with one pool and 3 hot tubs. This is a full service hotel, and quite luxurious. The restaurant is a bit overpriced though, as there are many good and less expensive restos in the pedestrian village. I would recommend this hotel highly.
Understated and elegant
Friendly, understated and elegant. A relaxed hotel that was most welcoming to our whole family. We particularly appreciated the hotel's environmental awareness as demonstrated in the recycling facilities and the absence of gratuitous wastefulness. The ski valet was a welcome resource. Food was good and the whole Tremblant experience was one which we would love to repeat - in contrast to our experience in the US two years ago.
Poor service and expensive
With the decline of the US dollar, this is an expensive hotel with poor service and an attitude to match. Parking $18/day, internet $14/day, breakfast $21/day, a $249 President's Club room with a view of a snow drift. The staff required daily reminders for basic services, such turn down service and fresh towels. The hotel's management said they appreciated the comments and agreed that after the labor strike last year the property has not been quite up to standard. Four years ago with a stronger US dollar, lower prices, and better management and staff, the Fairmont Tremblant was a great resort hotel and a great value.
Excellent all around!
Could not have asked for a better experience at the Fairmont. This massive hotel had every amenity and hands down the best location of any hotel in Mont Tremblant. It is the only truly ski in ski out hotel in the village - ski down a short slope to the main base to catch the gondola, or right off a green run to the enterance of the hotel. It is also adjacent to the pedestrian village which is the best village I've seen in the East - a plethora of original stores, restaurants and bars - like a vibrant little city. The staff at the hotel took care of every detail, was courteous and attentative, went above and beyond the call. Everyone spoke english and was happy to do so. The outdoor pools were stunning and a reason by themselves to choose this hotel- right next to the ski slopes. One of the three hot tubs was literally the size of a pool. Ski valet was great - didn't see my skis the whole trip except when I was ready to step into them, very convenient. Spa treatments at AmeriSpa were excellent - relaxing atmosphere, professional staff. Room was very clean, great view, had everything you'd expect and a very well appointed bathroom. Saw a few other hotels while at Tremblant - all seemed nice, but none compared. I'll probably go back just to stay at the hotel again.
The Fairmont Tremblant which was formerly the Canadian Pacific Chateau Tremblant did not loose any of the character or service in the change over. We found the rooms to be a nice size, & could not say enough about the service in the fine dining room. The hotel is a ski-in ski-out property. The nicest thing is that the hotel sits at the top of a hill. Walk out the door & you will find the village of Tremblant & a pedestrian only street to shop & browse. Strolling the street down hill is a lovely way to spend the day. I would reccommend winter or summer visits to anyone.
Had a great time
Hotel was great. Great service. Excellent food. Great location - ski in, ski out. Great view of the mountain. Hot tub was a blast. Concierge did a great job setting up tours, ski rental, etc for us. I have ZERO complaints. It is not the cheapest but we were very happy with our stay.
We stayed there for 4 nights and just returned home and we miss it already! Everything was wonderful, the staff, the food and the skiing. The pools are terrific and one is like a spa. The exercise room is well equipped and you look out over the pools not in a small room with no windows.
It's the only hotel at Tremblant where the pools are opened all day long. Be careful about that if a pool is important to you. Other hotels don't have a pool in the winter or are opened very little and not in the evening at all. There is a main aquacentre but it's expensive and not like having a pool at your hotel where you go down in their luxury bathrobes right to the pool. It's neat to swim in a warm pool outside in the winter.
I seem to be hung up on the pools but we were so impressed. We also found the food incredible and of high quality always. We lucked into fresh snow so the skiing was superb.
Very nice hotel in a nice area in which to spend some time
We just spent 2 nights at this hotel and were impressed. Although we stayed there during the summer, it had a homey feel that we thought would be great during ski season. We loved the location and its proximity to the hiking areas (aka the ski slopes), and the pool area felt like a little spa.
Great stay at The Fairmont Tremblant!
We have just returned from spending Christmas and New Year at the Fairmont Tremblant and have had a wonderful time. The location of the hotel is superb as it is directly off one of the green runs and is adjacent to the nursery slopes. The ski valet service that the hotel offers is a great additional service especially when you are tired from skiing all day and the valet guys welcome you with a smile and just take your skis from you.The staff in the hotel are outstanding and really could not do enough for us from the reception, concierge, porter and even the chamber maid. Our chamber maid even gave our children a little present each on New Year's Day which was a delightful touch.And if you don't want to ski ... well there is still plenty to occupy you.
There is a very nice lounge area with a fabulous log fire and very comfy sofas and a spa centre where you can indulge in some relaxing treatments which leave you feeling very pampered! Or in the late afternoon you could try out the hot cider served outside and then soak your weary limbs in the steaming hot outdoor tub!We only ate in the restaurant a couple of times but there did seem to be a variety of food on offer, mostly buffet and again the staff were very attentive. Rooms were also nice and large enough for four people, although with all the bulky clothes you need to take with for a skiing holiday we could have done with a little more wardrobe space for four of us.So to sum up, great location, great views, great staff and great hotel. We would definately return to the Fairmont Tremblant!
