Tremblant is a great family ski hill with so much to offer for all levels. THe North side of the mountain, accesible by both road and gondola, is fabulous and has some fun trails for all ability levels.

The ski school is very well run and offeres classes for all levels and kids often find them a lot of fun as they make new friends and socialise whilst really getting to grips with new skills.

Tremblant has many double black diamond and glade skiing trails that your hubby would enjoy and you, like me, will find some nice cruising trails on the North side and the Versant Soleil.

A great place for children to learn , but when are you planning to take the holiday. If during North American holidays book ski school ahead of time and if in January February wrap up warm.

We prefer the resort of tremblant for our children to ski so much safer than Europe.

Usually, because we had a serie of unusual winters in the last few years, February is very cold, you must cover yourself as much as you can and those little chemical gizmos that you rub and give heat come in handy for feet and hands (you will find them at dollar stores). If cold it is also usually a very sunny month. Some gust of wind could blind you for a short time but you will certainly be able to see the trails. Snowstorms happens a few times during the month and that means higher temperatures until the storm has totally cleared (usually one day of big storm and a second with a bit of snow and flurries but with sunny episodes. But once the storm is completely off the way then you have a noticeable drop in temperature, going to the frigid point.

Oh note that there is a holiday in the US during Feb (Presidents Day) and it will bring an influx of tourists for some days around that. Also at the extreme end of the month the Spring Breaks (in the US) and the Winter Breaks (in Canada) will start and bring a lot of kids around but for most of the month you will be safely away from the huge crowds.

Presidents' Day in the US is always the third Monday in February, making for a nice 3-day week-end. Valentine's Day also is a popular time at Tremblant; this year, it falls on a Monday, so February 11-14 period also should be relatively busy, but not overwhelmingly so.

Hi JanicePringle,

Welcome to the MONT TREMBLANT TRAVEL FORUM.

To follow up on what RICKB has posted above…

The US Holiday for President’s Day is marked on the 3rd Monday in February (Feburary 21, 2011) and this year the Ontario Holiday for Family Day will take place on the same Monday… so Mont Tremblant could indeed be quite busy then.

Also as noted, the Quebec Schools tend to hold their mid-Winter Break the last week of February… which is also a busy time a Tremblant (right then thru to closing in April) as various School Jurisdictions across the Canada and USA hold their March Breaks & Spring Breaks.

Hope this is helpful,

Cheers!

The local schools In the Mont Tremblant region have their spring break the first week of March. The Ontairo, makes the mountain crazy busy, is the third week of MArch!

I have been to Scotland a lot, my bro lives in Johnshaven and my parents live not too far from you in Wooler. THey in fact had a worse winter than we did last year. It can be bitingly cold here, but if you dress in layers and make sure all bits are covered, applying sunscreen is a must as well, you will still have fun here.

There are lots of fun things to do besides the skiing in winter, skating on the lake, dofsledding, innertubing etc. If you bring the right clothes you'll be able to enjoy it all.

Bonjour, Hello ...

For many years, a friend of ours from Wick, Scotland, has travelled annually here to Tremblant because of the consistent quality of the excellent snow surfaces and the great value this area represents as far as accommodation, food, entertainment, etc., etc. He finds the temps here tolerable because of the dryness, or lack of humidity that we typically experience in Feb.

...However,

Caveat:

Feb weather, just like any other winter month can have a wild card element, so even when you discuss typical patterns for the month, you should allow for the possibilities of variations up or down in terms of how you pack, to be totally prepared. (Read: bring layers)

Typically then, Feb @ Tremblant can be quite cold, but is usually a quite dry cold .

Here are some Feb. Environment Canada Stats for Tremblant:

Available Data: 5 years

Average Maximum Temperature (Day) -9 °C / 0 °C

Average Minimum Temperature (Night) -23 °C / -8 °C

Highest Temperature observed 8 °C

Lowest Temperature observed -33 °C

Average Hours of Sunshine 236 hours

Average Days with Precipitation 9 days

Average Windforce 4 kph

Highest Peak Gust observed 84 kph

As you can see while the averages may show one thing, the variables show the possibilities of quite a different range.

The way that this could affect you is that those variable patterns can often last for as little as a day or as long as several days, perhaps even your whole week.

The bonus in all this is that the Feb Snow conditions are in this writers opinion, the very best of the season.

We often get the whole month of Feb with the most beautiful "Squeaky" dry snow that you can carve turns in like a surgeon with a sharp scalpel. I like my snow cold, dry and fast.

The "Grip" levels in the Feb snow surfaces is typically the best of the season and cold or not, it is my favorite month.

February is the Heart of winter @ Tremblant.

All you need to do is be prepared for the variables and you will have the time of your life exploring our beautiful mountain while she wears her best winter coat.
