In 1939, Joe and Mary Ryan, American visionaries seduced by the beauty of the Tremblant region, opened the Mont Tremblant Lodge. The ski resort’s popularity was immediate.
More than fifty years later, investment by the company Intrawest would bring major change to the resort. Their vision would soon bear fruit : Tremblant is now a major resort and sports centre, named Number 1 ski resort in Eastern North America for more than ten years running by Ski magazine readers.
Versant Sud is the heart of the mountain. Nestling at the bottom of the ski runs and hiking trails are boutiques, restaurants, accommodation, and venues for shows and events for all seasons. All are conveniently grouped in the pedestrian village.
Versant Sud hosts many major events during the year, including Les Rythmes Tremblant, Blues Festival, the Tremblant's 24 hour of skiing, and IRONMAN Tremblant.
The mountain slopes surrounding the pedestrian village with its colourful buildings offer a variety of accommodation in condos, chalets and luxury residences with direct access to trails, panoramic views of the resort and Tremblant lake.
In all seasons you can enjoy a wide variety of activities: ride for free in the open gondola above the village, or take the panoramic gondola all the way to the mountain top. The summit is at 875 metres (2,871 ft) is one of the tallest peaks in the Laurentians. There are golf and mini golf courses, a skating rink near the Chapelle, a Beach and Tennis Club on Tremblant lake at the bottom of the hill, ski lessons… and of course, access to almost 100 ski runs from beginner to expert!
Another advantage is that Versant Sud is only 5 minutes by car from Mont Tremblant old village; 6 minutes from Versant Soleil; 15 minutes from Saint-Jovite; and at 20 minutes from Versant Nord and Lac Supérieur.
Versant Sud is, without any doubt, the place to be at any time of the year!
