What to wear

Here are some suggestions that we hope will help you be more comfortable and get the most fun out of your Mt Tremblant activities. Remember that we all have different metabolisms and come from different environments so it is ultimately your responsibility to be dressed appropriately. Hydration and nutrition are also your responsibility, so bring a water bottle and snack.

You probably don't have to go on a shopping spree. It's likely that you already have most of what you need. If not, something "good enough" can be picked up in most big box stores or you can buy something that will last for years from a specialty outdoor store. You can find stores directly here on the resort or very close by. There are also shops here that rent winter snow pants and jackets (subject to availability).

Summer

You can scroll down to get specific information per activity.

Sun and rain are the main elements to keep in mind when deciding how to dress properly. Occasionally, windy conditions are a factor.

Check the weather before you go. Here is a link to our local weather forecast.

Summer weather is so unpredictable that you need to pack clothing for all types of weather. From hot humid days to cool rainy days.

Be prepared to get wet. Most of our activities operate rain or shine. Many of our activities are on, in, or near the water. Bring a waterproof/water resistant jacket. If you don't own one there are shops in the area that sell apparel.

Between May and the end of June, bugs can be a nuisance, so we suggest you carry insect repellent with you. For most of the activities you can bring a backpack with you. Dark clothes attract bugs. Sun protection, sun hats, sun glasses and sunscreen are strongly suggested for any outdoor activity during the summer.

      

Rafting
During this activity you are almost guaranteed to get soaked. Your base layer is a bathing suit, followed by nylon or fast drying shorts. Some people wear synthetic long underwear or a tee shirt for sun protection. Cloudy days may require a light wool or polypropylene (NOT COTTON) sweater and a nylon jacket. Wetsuits may be rented on site. For the family float trips only, we offer complimentary wetsuit tops if required. Everyone needs to wear water-capable footwear such as reef walkers, sport sandals, water resistant running shoes or tennis shoes. These will need to stay on your feet if/when you swim. Everything gets wet, so NO LEATHER SHOES, high heels make holes in the raft. Cold weather neoprene booties are available for rent.

Bring a towel and a change of dry clothes, money for souvenir items and TIPS for your guide, and an ID card for wetsuit rentals

WHAT NOT TO BRING: (Car keys can be left with the rafting receptionist) Jewellery and items of value, large amounts of cash, expensive cameras or video-cameras, passports or travel documents

WINTER

You can scroll down to get specific information per activity.

Cold, wind, and snow are the main elements to keep in mind when deciding how to dress properly. Occasionally, rainy or wet conditions are a factor.

Check the weather before you go. Here is a link to our local weather forecast.

Level of physical intensity
For low intensity activities you need to dress on the warm side. You won't be moving and, chances are, the more time you spend outside the colder you will get.

For moderate and particularly for high intensity activities, you need to under-dress. In other words, you need to feel a bit cold before you start. You will be getting warm from working out and if you are overdressed you will perspire much more, get wet, then cold and uncomfortable. The clothing should be light, multi-layered and easily removed. Also, always have an extra layer to put on for when you stop and take a break. More on layering below. Remember to bring water on high intensity actvities.

Layering
Layering lets you add and remove layers and adjust your comfort.
The first layer should be formfitting and should be a material to keep you dry. Synthetics are great as they wick away moisture. Cotton is a definite no-no: Once wet it stays wet. The second layer, or insulating layer, will keep you warm like a fleece or wool sweater (Insulating layer can actually be more than one layer). The third layer would be a waterproof or water-resistant shell or insulated shell to protect you from the wind, snow, and any wetness. Ideal shell fabrics are breathable.

Hands and feet
If your hands and feet are cold put on a sweater! (or a hat). Your body will reduce blood flow to the extremities when your core is even a tiny bit cold. Mitts are much warmer than gloves as they don't isolate the fingers. Another option for those with chronically cold hands and feet are hand warmers. These are tiny envelopes containing a product that reacts and creates heat when taken out of its packaging and exposed to air. You shove them in your boot or mittens and voila, heat.

Head
Remember we lose a lot of body heat from our heads. It's important to wear something on your head, like a tuque (that's what Canadians call a knit or insulated cap!)

Extras
On all of our activities you may bring a small packsack to bring any extra clothing with you.

    

Sleigh Ride
Low intensity
Blankets and hot chocolate will be offered. No indoor facilities.

Zipline and canopy tours
Moderate intensity
Wear gloves instead of mittens as you will need to manipulate your harness often. Avoid wearing a long coat as it will get in the way of your harness. Tie up long hair. Wear boots as you will be walking on snowy and sometimes muddy trails. No indoor facilities.

For the snowhoe part if you are doing the Mega ziplines and snowshoe activity: High intensity activities. You should be dressed in layers. 

Bring a small backpack for the extra layers extra layer

For snowshoeing please wear suitable footwear, such as boots that will cover your ankles

Low intensity for passengers who won't be driving the sled.
Warm boots, snowsuits, gloves; tuque and even hot pads are suggested. We recommend wearing a helmet.
Moderate to high intensity for drivers
Dress in layers. Drivers will sometimes be standing still and sometimes will be running along the sled. Drivers will be using the foot brake which kicks up snow onto your pants. Good boots are important for this activity. On snowy or windy days we suggest you bring ski goggles if you have them.

Snowmobiling
Low intensity
For the snowmobiling activities, we supply the proper snowsuits, mitts, boots and helmets and heated handlebars! You should wear warm clothes underneath, like your long underwear or anything you would wear under your ski wear. If you need glasses or contacts to drive a car, then you need them to drive a snowmobile.

Snow tubing
Low intensity since a rope tow brings you back up the hill.
We suggest that you wear snowsuits, boots, mitts, and tuque. Helmets are not provided but you are welcome to bring ski helmets if you have them. If it's a windy day, bring your goggles with you. There is a cafeteria and two restaurants on site where you can warm up in between runs.

Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Paintball
High intensity activities. You should be dressed in layers.
Bring a small backpack with extra layer.

For snowshoeing and paintball please wear suitable footwear, such as boots that will cover your ankles

Paintball packages include all equipment; face mask, one piece camouflage cover-alls to go over your clothes, precision paintball gun, unlimited co2, neck protector, gloves, ammunition belt and hat. Paint used will not stain your clothing and is 100% biodegradable. Non-freezing balls are used during the winter so we can play even on very cold days.

Ice climbing
Low intensity when you are belaying (supporting the climber), to high intensity when its your turn to climb.
Wear snow pants because you will be in contact with the ice face. Occasionally there is water on the ice. The use of gaiters or old snow pants is recommended since you wear crampons for ice climbing which can tear pant ankles if you are not careful. You need to bring alpine Ski boots. Bring your own, if you don't have any you will need to arrange rentals in advance. These can be rented at boutiques here in Tremblant. We provide un-insulated helmets. Tuques can be worn underneath. Please don't choose a tuque with a huge pom-pom.  It is recommended to bring sunglasses or goggles.Did we mention that YOU NEED TO BRING ALPINE SKI BOOTS? please!
