Summer 2009 will not be so fondly remembered… With its terrible weather, constant rise of gas costs at the pump and one economic bad news after the other, all gave us good reasons to languish. However, August has brought us some well deserved respite along with the promise of mild days ahead with the approach of fall and its colors; summer 2009 seems to slowly fade in the background.

Time to think about Christmas…

Yes, I know, it is early, much too early… but year end celebrations are already getting planned for many companies wishing to treat themselves and their colleagues at Le Grand Lodge. Our corporate packages are always very popular. Many companies keep coming back and appreciate how easily our seasoned team takes care of their every need to make their stay with us an unforgettable experience.

We have not forgotten anyone this year, and are offering special Holiday Family Packages for Christmas (with the surprise visit of a friendly white bearded fella…!) and for New Year’s, which will be marked by lakeside fireworks for the first time.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

The forest race is the last leg of a series of six races on snowshoes or on foot which have been held throughout Quebec since last January 31. The Tremblant final features a 5 km and 10 km-circuit through often improbable conditions in the middle of the woods: steep climbs, brook crossings and even swampy areas.

You won't finish clean as a whistle, but rather with the soul of the forest upon you.


Les Artistes de Mont-Tremblant

Artistes Mont-Tremblant

We are a dedicated group of 10 visual artists whose goal is to share our expertise and pleasure of the arts with others. We consider art vital to our lives and to the cultural richness of any community. By making our art visible in public events and locations, we hope to enhance awareness of art by direct contact between the public and the artist.

Les Artistes de Mont-Tremblant continue thrilling art aficionados and neophytes of all ages at their “barn gallery/studio” for weekends in September. This converted exhibition/working space is located beside the Grand Lodge Hotel and continues to marvel for its beauty set against a magnificent tall pine forest adorned with sculptures and works of art that touch the soul.

To the delight of his many followers, Luis Paniagua has invited other fellow sculptors from the area to join him for the Labour Day weekend on the grounds of the barn. Whether their medium is wood or stone, they will work their art for all to admire. Come by and meet these accomplished artists, ask them questions, watch their creativity unfold into works of beauty, right before your eyes!

We look forward to seeing you at the barn!
