When you enjoy sports at Mont-Tremblant, you need to take a few precautions.
Like some other mountains, many vacation rentals are located close to the Mont-Tremblant trails. Therefore, it is important to be careful when crossing the ski-in ski-out access to these properties, especially to avoid colliding with an owner or tenant who is about to hit the slopes.
Likewise, when going down a slope, you also need to regulate your speed of descent in relation to other people around you and leave enough space between you and them. If you need to stop momentarily, remember to pull over to the side of the hill.
In addition, you should make sure that the difficulty level of the trails you want to use is appropriate for your level of ability - beginner, intermediate or advanced. If this is your first visit to Mont-Tremblant, we recommend avoiding the more difficult trails at first.
If you are staying at one of the luxury condos or chalets located near Mont-Tremblant, it is important to respect the mountain's opening hours. You also need to comply with the rules and restrictions at all times. Here are four reasons why this safety tip is so important.
If the mountain officials deem it important to close one or more trails, you are required to comply. Avoid venturing onto a closed trail to avoid holes, crevices or other dangerous conditions that could put your safety at risk.
If you enter a closed track and get injured, there will unfortunately be no first-aid workers nearby to help you. You could spend several hours in the cold before being rescued.
Heavy equipment can work on closed tracks during the day and at night. When a worker is grooming a trail with a snow groomer, he assumes that his path is clear and he doesn't expect to run into people. This means you run a significant risk when riding on closed trails.
Using the slopes outside of opening hours may result in an infraction. It is important to use the slopes during opening hours only, especially to avoid having the resort file a complaint against you.
Another important safety tip is to pay attention to the signs on the mountain. At Mont-Tremblant, you may spot various signs on the trails. These signs are there to guide you and inform you of the condition of the trails, the various difficulty levels and the precautions to take. Paying attention to these signs will help you get around safely.
There you have it! Now you know how to get the most out of Mont-Tremblant. Make sure to follow these safety tips so you can have a more enjoyable and worry-free stay.
