There are a number of factors pointing to the Winter of 2018/19
having extraordinary potential. Of all those factors, the most
significant is the very early sustained Sub-Zero C coolness that has
been able to support retained snowmaking, as well as natural snowfall,
since late October.
This is a archival history reference.
First Observed Snowmaking.
10.26.18 Lowell Thomas High Speed Detachable Quad Installation
Observations, Summit Level. 8 Days Later...
Obvious winter-like Summit conditions. Very heavy frost and visible accumulated snowfall to top
of Expo sector, Versant Nord, North Side. Normally, history would not show such early snowfall or snowmaking
being able to “Stick” so early, but not only has the initial test remained,
we can also see natural snow down to the level of the “Flying Mile” sector. 5 Days Later...
In this sequence, we see Snowmaking firmly established from
Summit to both Versant Sud, South and Versant Nord, North Bases.
For this to be happening on November 11th is truly extraordinary
and it is the principal reason of hope for Tremblant Ski/Board fans
to expect Total Mountain Vertical on Opening Day.
Unofficially, we think this is only the third time in #Tremblant history
since 1939, that the Mountain will Open with Summit-To-Base on
both major sectors.
3 Days Later...
By now, “Fall” is beginning to seem like a distant memory...
If you showed this picture to any Tremblant-regular any other
year and told them it was December 20th, they would believe
you in a heartbeat!
A very important observation below is the clearly evident
installation of the main Lift Cable on the new Lowell Thomas
High Speed Quad.
1 Day Later...
An important observation here, in addition to all the early snow,
is the reconfiguration of “Rope Tow”, the trail just below the new
Lowell Thomas Quad. The Versant Nord, North Side Terrain Park
that was here for roughly the last 10 years or so, is being relocated
to the bottom of Sissy Schuss, so this upper North side sector appears
to be returning to its roots as an open Alpine Ski Trail.
The entrance fence that was located here for many years has
been removed. The “One-At-A-Time” restriction, as well as the
odd wear pattern the narrow entrance created, are gone.
There will be may older Tremblant Fans who will be very excited
about that because they have missed its wide expanse of rolling
pitches that are easy to navigate and get excellent Summit-Level
