When the snow melts, get on the green at Mont-Tremblant’s golf courses. Tee off on the devilishly difficult Le Diable golf course or take in the grand scenery of Le Geant golf course. With more sub-par (in a good way) greens spread around the city, Mont-Tremblant is a foremost golf destination.

After tackling the 2 km obstacle course on the waterfront of Lac Raynaud, take to the lake. Pick up a paddle and canoe or kayak your way across this beautiful body of water. At Lac Raynaud’s supervised swimming beach, you can dip your toe or dive right in.
When the lake freezes over, Domaine Saint-Bernard’s winter activities heat up. Cross country trails trace through 80 km of the park, providing paths for both skate and classic styles of skiing. Winter walking paths and snowshoe trails add even more cold-weather adventures to Domaine Saint-Bernard. To warm up after spending time in the snow, head to the park’s heated shelters or sit by the rest area’s fireplace.
In every season, Domaine Saint-Bernard’s many avian inhabitants make for amazing birdwatching. The Jardin des Oiseaux attracts a variety of birds, from blue jays to Baltimore orioles. If you’re lucky, you may even get to hand feed the park’s cheeky chickadees.
