There’s a lively atmosphere in Tremblant in the evening, more so than in a lot of North American resorts. Try La Forge Bar & Grill between the Tremblant ski slopes and Place St-Bernard, or The Shack, also right by the bottom of the lifts on the south side. Both have live music. Two must-try drinks are caribou, which is a typically Quebecois apres-ski drink made from red wine, as is sortilege, a whisky made from maple syrup. They are deliciously warming after a day on the slopes. The Microbrasserie La Diable, further into the centre of the village, is a microbrewery that is also a popular hang-out, with a nice terrace to sit out on in spring. Generally a lot of people hang out in the lounges of the hotels that make up what the French call the front de neige at the bottom of the slopes.
For clubbing/dancing the two main venues are the Cafe d’Epoque which holds theme nights – ranging from Mardi Gras celebrations to beach parties and burlesque parties, and the P’tit Caribou bar/lounge. There are generally only queues to get in on Friday and Saturday nights.
The resort also has the plush Casino de Mont Tremblant on the Versant Soleil, which is accessible by shuttle bus from the main village. It boasts 25 tables and about 400 slot machines.
Spa lovers with a car should head for the Scandinave Spa. (There are shuttle buses from many hotels too.) It offers several saunas and outdoor whirlpools, relaxation hammocks, a range of massage treatments, plus the chance of a dip in the Diable river through a hole in the ice. You can buy snacks here or join one of the tea tastings, too.
