About Mont-Tremblant



Mont-Tremblant is a city in the Laurentian mountains of Quebec, Canada, approximately 130 kilometres (81 mi) north-west of Montreal and 140 kilometres (87 mi) north-east of Ottawa. The current municipality with city status was formed in 2000. Mont-Tremblant is most famous for ski resorts such as the Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort, which is 13 kilometres from the village proper, at the foot of a mountain called Mont Tremblant (derived from local Algonquins who referred to it as the "trembling mountain"). The largest population centre in Mont-Tremblant is Saint-Jovite.

Mont-Tremblant has a race track called Circuit Mont-Tremblant. It once hosted Formula One, Can-Am, Trans-Am, and Champ Car World Series competitions.

The surrounding area also features hiking, cycling, canoeing, golfing, and a host of other outdoor activities.

Since the summer of 2006, Mont-Tremblant has its own senior amateur Football team, the Mystral, and Junior AA hockey team, Les Diables (Devils). There is also a new Zipline and Ariel games course on the resort called Tremblant Adventure Course
