To safely use the trails at Tremblant, you must follow fundamental points pulled from the Mountain Code of Conduct and ensure that you follow the safety rules. Regardless of your equipment – alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross-country skis and specialized equipment for people with disabilities – be safety conscious and; it’s your responsibility!

    • The primary safety consideration - and obligation under the mountain code of conduct - is to ski and ride in a controlled and responsible manner. Any contravention of the mountain code of conduct or reprehensible behaviour may cause a revocation of your privileges that your lift ticket or season pass confers.

      No downhill

      Excessive speed has a negative impact on reaction times and makes it difficult to avoid obstacles or other gliders.

    • Learning zones
      They 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.

    Play Safe

    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 Snow School and all kids and adults in racing and freestyle programs. Note that all employees working on the mountain must also wear a helmet while on duty on the mountain. For additional information, visit myhelmet.ca.
