Who’s who at Mont Tremblant and what’s where…circa 1984
The fourth destination on the regular daily service from the Murray Hill Ski Buses was Mont Tremblant.
I like this week’s early 1980s brochure (circa 1984), it features in a fun way the different elements of Mont Tremblant; the place and the people.
– The Nature Lover
– The Hog Dogger
– The Decision Maker
– The Tyro
– The Instructor
– The Golden Person
– The Gourmand
– The Apparthôtel Dweller
– The Bump Basher
– The Good Skate
In Winter, vistas of the snow-covered mountain and frozen Lac Tremblant at its base are truly magnificent. But it is the French touch that gives a special feeling to life here, on or off the slopes.
The Base Village:
Our very own, very picturesque French Canadian village is growing right at the base of the lifts. It’s a quaint, tiny hamlet where you can live it up or just relax.
– Mont Tremblant
– Lifts (Still had one remaining single chair)
– Chalet des Voyageurs
– The Cottages
– The Inn
– The Skiers’ Chapel
This Tremblant Base Village is very different from the one that sits at the bottom of the mountain nowadays. Joe Ryan’s vision was an imitation of a typical Quebec rural village; today’s Tremblant architecture is based urban setting: the Old City in Quebec City.
The Mont Tremblant 1984-1985 “Des vacances sur les pentes” Lodging Packages
I have also included a French version of price of the package for the different lodging options for 1984-1985 which uses the same illustrations for the lodging buildings. The side flap of the brochure fold-ins the price of the different prices for weekends versus weekdays.
