In 2002, Station Mont Tremblant was granted the prestigious ULI’s Award in the Large Scale Leisure Project category, which is intended as a recognition for development projects that are characterized by their financial viability, clever site usage, quality of development and respect for environment and community needs. The panel members underscored the innovative ways by which the project integrated architectural constraints with the beautiful natural setting.
When the Versant Soleil was in development, Station Mont Tremblant designed the ski slopes so they would be narrow and winding; this way a vegetal band was left unharmed along the brooks, thus preventing their warming and contamination by sediment. The methods that were used for this face of the mountain new slopes were based on a careful planning, helicopter usage for building material transportation on site, minimal use of machinery and immediate reforestation. Slopes clever design and minimizing of environmental impact contributed to Station Mont Tremblant figuring in the finalist roster for a Silver Eagle Award in the Wildlife Habitat Protection category.
In 2000, Station Mont Tremblant amiably retroceded more than 25% of its leased land to Parc du Mont-Tremblant; this represents 18 sq. kms, including the Sommet Johansen, the highest summit North of Montreal. This ensures the sustainability of an exceptional ecological entity while maintaining biological features that are essential for future generations. This recognition of biodiversity’s critical importance was the reason why the Station was chosen as a finalist for a Phénix de l'environnement in the Biodiversity Conservation category.
