Tremblant will have a ski season
Winter sports enthusiasts were happy to learn that Tremblant will be open this winter. Skiers and boarders will be able to enjoy the usual skiable terrain and fresh air of the mountains. Every effort has been made and will be made until the slopes open – November 20 is the scheduled date – to get ready for the 2020-2021 season.
The health and safety of skiers and boarders – and that of the entire Resort community – are the top priority. A variety of winter scenarios have been analyzed and planned to ensure that all health measures that meet the requirements of Public Health have been respected.
Tremblant, which works closely with Alterra Mountain Company, wishes to make the guest experience as user-friendly as possible and to facilitate access to the mountain
THE MAJOR POINTS FOR OPERATIONS IN GREEN, YELLOW AND ORANGE ZONES
Access to skiable terrain
It’s no surprise that mountain attendance will be controlled in order to limit contacts. Those with Tonik and Ikon passes will have priority access and reservations will not be required. In view of the limited quantities, ski lift tickets will have to be purchased in advance for a specific date.
The cost of tickets will vary in accordance with the time of year. Tremblant recommends that you verify the rate in effect and that tickets be purchased via Tremblant.ca or the call centre.
Latitude card discontinued this year
Products that permit skiing on the date of one’s choosing, including the Latitude card and tickets sold at Costco and corporate tickets (Ski Max), will not be sold this year. However, days on the Latitude card that were not used last winter can be used this 2020-2021 season, except from December 26, 2020, to January 2, 2021. All details are available at tremblant.ca/a-propos/faq.
Use of the mechanical lifts will be as usual with the exception of the gondola cabins, whose capacity will be reduced by 50 per cent. The use of a lift by skiers from the same household will have priority, while remaining available to others if they so wish.
Common areas and rentals
There will be modifications to the use of indoor spaces including two-metre physical distancing. In addition, no bags or personal items may be left in the common spaces; they must remain in the skiers’ and boarders’ vehicles. Use of a mask or face covering will be required in closed public spaces, the gondola, mechanical lifts and waiting lines.
However, a neck-warmer or balaclava that covers the mouth and nose could replace the face covering when skiing or boarding or on the lifts. Lastly, skiing and boarding equipment will still be available for rent.
In a red zone, the following will replace some of the points mentioned previously
Only skiers from the same household will be able to take a lift together. For those not living under the same roof, the two-metre rule will apply. The chalets will be reserved for warming up for a limited period, and the restaurant services will be closed. Information related to the Snow School will be available shortly.
