Nope. very little have turned color yet. I actually travelled around yesterday and was able to check a bit more than from my balcony. We are a good two to three weeks away from the peak season.

And you should try to come during the week, not week-ends as it will be a complete zoo starting not this week-end but the next.

Peak varies by year, but normally is during the first week of October. I was there last year from Oct 5-14. Leaves were at their peak when I arrived (and probably were for a few days earlier too) and began to become muted, but still beautiful, from Oct 8 onwards.

Rick's advice about crowds on week-ends is spot on. If you can--and I realize that it might not be possible to do so--try to visit during the week. Sunday, Oct 6, 2012, cars were backed up from the pedestrian village all of the way down Montee Ryan and on AutoRoute 117 to the Rte 323 exit to St-Jovite! True, it was Thanksgiving week-end and traffic might have been somewhat heavier than usual. Still, "leaf peepers" from Montreal and Ottawa areas routinely visit Tremblant for the fall colours and crowds on week-ends are common.

Yes and from one year to another they seems to forget about the crowd and traffic. Just the same way as people visiting Disney World blank out the crowd and the long line ups.

I was out side for the last 2 hours and I can clearly see that the peak season will probably starting the next week-end, not the incoming one. If you can come in the week then the following Monday to Friday will be great. Also it is too early for the rain forecasted this week-end to do any harm.

I was up the mountain today, hiked up and down, and the leaves are just beginning to turn. Another week and it will be lovely.
