This is a perfect example of a Frequently Asked Question we've
gotten almost countless times over the decades by friends or
referrals who've never skied here before.


"We've heard it can be cold at Tremblant?"

Answer:

Tremblant 30 Year Average Daily High Temps:
November: +2.9C = 37.22F
December: -4.5C = 23.9F
January: -7.5C = 18.5F
February: -4.6C = 23.72F
March: +1.8C = 35.24F
April: +9.7C = 49.46F

(Stats Courtesy of The Weather Network.)


Conclusions:

A) Tremblant's averages are not overly cold,
however not every day is average, some are colder,
some are warmer. You need to be ready for both,
which is surprisingly easy to do with Layers, Vents
and Overlaps.

B) Anywhere it's cold enough to have "Winter",
at least enough "Winter" to justify a "Ski Resort",
can have very cold days.


Furthermore:

A) Tremblant's winter air masses tend to have
less humidity and feel drier, which many people
seem to prefer.

B) Drier, colder snow has "Squeaky" audio characteristics
when compressed under load as traversed by foot, on skis
or snowboard. This gives it exceptionally high levels of
mechanical grip, and low resistance, which is ideal for
Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding.



"Yeah, but we've heard it can get really cold
somedays?"

Sure, it can be, but the secret is...
it's easy to handle if you prepare with these three words:

Layers...
Vents...
Overlaps...


More on those later, but first, here are the facts:

The above temperatures are for the daily ranges of
average monthly day-time highs, night-time lows.


The bottom line on the stat's is that while extremes can happen
BOTH high and low beyond the stat's above, on average we do not
see more than between 6 to a dozen really cold days in a season,
they rarely run for more than 2,3 or 4 at a time and most of the lows
occur in the middle of the night when we're not skiing!


Beyond the numbers...

Standing at the bar at any Ski Resort, Apres Ski stories of
just how cold it may have been way back when, are numerous
and tend to become more dramatic as the evening and the beer
wear on. Tremblant is no exception, we even have some of those
stories ourselves, but no matter who's telling them, there's usually
lots of joking and laughing going on, not to mention literally much
bragging about surviving and just how tough the story tellers are.

Equally fair to point out that there is not one single Eastern skier
that has not had a run-in with a "January Thaw".

The point is, experienced Skiers and Boarders alike are highly adaptive
and are prepared for both.

Once again,

The Secret to All Temperature Tremblant Comfort:


Layers...
Vents...
Overlaps...


More on that shortly....
