If you are traveling to a world-class ski resort, I am willing to bet snowshoeing is not the first activity you have in mind. When faced with the prospect of carving up a mountain on skis or trudging through the snow, most will choose skis.
Mont-Tremblant has more than 100 trails for skiers and snowboarders, but, for those who want to take their time to really engage with the mountain, there are also snowshoe trails.
The mountain has seven distinct trails for snowshoeing that all begin at one of the tallest peaks in the Laurentians and diverge to give snowshoe participants seven different options to reach the bottom. The trails range in length 1–5 kilometers, but all include stellar views, which only get better after the sun sets and the night sky shines in full glory.
One of the coolest experiences for snowshoeing on Mont-Tremblant is the Snowshow Tour and Fondue dinner. This five-kilometer trek brings guests to the top of the mountain before a three-hour descent. In the middle, the group stops for dinner at The Refuge. This restaurant is remote, devoid of electricity and makes the perfect place for a rest mid-hike.
It is not most people’s first choice when thinking of how they should traverse a mountain, but snowshoeing offers travelers and adventurers a way to get closer to the mountain and know it better than they could with a simple ski pass.
