Safety on the Mountain

To safely use the trails at Tremblant, you must follow these three fundamental points from the Mountain Code of Conduct.


Control

No matter your skill level, you must be able to stop and avoid obstacles and other skiers at all times.


Speed

Although the Mountain Code of Conduct stipulates that skiers must be in control at all times, it is very important that they follow the flow according to the trail level. Speed will not be tolerated the same in an expert area and in a beginner area. We encourage skiers to use their judgement and adapt their speed according to the area they are skiing in. When you ski faster than most skiers around you on the slope, it means you are skiing too fast. Be courteous and respect the surrounding flow.

Helmet Usage: Station Mont Tremblant recommends wearing helmets for skiing and riding. The helmet is mandatory for all snowpark users, kids 12 years old and under taking ski lessons with Tremblant’s Snow School and all kids and adults in racing and freestyle programs. More details


Signage Respect

Several tools are used to warn skiers of hazards on the trails: ropes, bamboo and signs will direct you. You must respect them!

  • The learning zones guarantee peace of mind like nowhere else on the mountain. These trail segments, identified by a green shaded area, are dedicated to beginner skiers and riders. Speed is strictly forbidden.
  • Slow Zones: Remember, you are sharing the slopes with other skiers and boarders. Be cautious at all times. Yellow marked zones prohibit speed. Due to high traffic, please have the courtesy to ski or ride more slowly in these areas.

Snowshoes and backcountry skis

There are many snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hiking trails around the mountain. This season, enjoy our new designated areas for climbing the mountain on alpine touring skis. No matter which area you chose to climb, plan your way down! Tremblant offers 95 trails on 4 different sides. Ensure you go down a trail that will lead you back to your starting point or to your planned arrival point. More details about accessible trails and safety rules

Regardless of your equipment – alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross-country skis and specialized equipment for people with disabilities – ensure that you always follow the Mountain Code of Conduct; it’s your responsibility!

Here are guidelines for all activities other than gliding sports planned for the ski area:

  1. You must have a valid daily access pass or ticket to use the trails on the mountain with your backcountry skis.
  2. It is forbidden to camp on the mountain.
  3. To get to the top, you will temporarily borrow some ski slopes. It is essential that you adhere to the Mountain Code of Conduct and make sure you are visible by upstream traffic.
  4. Mont Tremblant is located in the Parc national du Mont-Tremblant. Thus, pets are not allowed (dogs and cats).
