MONT TREMBLANT RESORT, QUEBEC, CANADA

 

Mont Tremblant Resort 



 

 

In 1938, Joseph Bondurant Ryan, a young wealthy American from Philadelphia journeyed to the North to do some gold prospecting, he was taken by the beauty of the majestic Mont Tremblant - "mountain of the spirits". He climbed to the summit, and upon seeing the breath-taking view of the snow-covered landscape, Jo Ryan vowed to transform the wilderness at the foot of the mountain into a world-class alpine village. Just one year later, in February 1939, his dream was realised, when the Mont-Tremblant Lodge, with its architecture reminiscent of Old Quebec, opened.

In 1991, as the alpine village teetered on the edge of bankruptcy, the biggest promoter of alpine resorts Intrawest Corporation  announced that it would buy the Mont-Tremblant Lodge and promised to pursue Jo Ryan's dream...to make Mont-Tremblant one of the best leisure destinations in the world.
