Mont Tremblant April Skiing

Mont Tremblant in April: Overview


  • Mont Tremblant typically stays open to the Sunday closest to the middle of the month in April, anywhere between April 11 and April 19. Closing day also depends on temperatures in April and the depth of the snowpack heading into the month.
  • Mont Tremblant's snowmaking system and its northerly latitude make April skiing better than many other eastern mountains.
  • Mont Tremblant's snowmaking system is one of the most advanced in North America and allows the mountain to maintain good snow conditions throughout the season. Additionally, its northerly latitude means that it receives more natural snowfall than many other eastern mountains, which can help to prolong the ski season.
  • The warm weather in April makes the base pedestrian village come alive. As the snow melts, the village transforms into a lively destination with outdoor patios, terraces, and festivals taking place. Many shops and restaurants are also open, giving visitors the chance to enjoy the mountain's après-ski scene.


  • April skiing can be dicey anywhere, especially in the North American east. Having an open mind about what conditions might be like—rain can be a real threat—will help skiers enjoy their time at Mont Tremblant in April.

Skiing at Mont Tremblant in April can be a great experience as the mountain is typically open until the Sunday closest to the 15th of the month. However, the end of the ski season can bring unpredictable weather and a decrease in snow quality, so skiers should know that there is a lot of variability, especially in eastern North America, when it comes to April skiing.

Additionally, some of the Mont Tremblant's facilities and lifts may close earlier in the month as the season comes to an end. That said, the warmer April weather can be a blessing for those who like to hang out in the pedestrian village, which is the main hub for skiing. The village is at the base of the mountain and offers many ski-in/ski-out options, as well as easy access to the main ski lifts, gondolas, and ski school meeting points.

Lodging in this section is often pricey, but in April, steals can be had.

Mont Tremblant snow in April

Data show April is the fourth best month Mont Tremblant for overall snow quality when considering the following factors:

  • Snow quantity at Mont Tremblant
  • Snow quality at Mont Tremblant
  • How much snow is required for proper terrain coverage at Mont Tremblant—steeper resorts require more snow to get 100% open.
  • Mont Tremblant's snow frequency (standard deviation)
  • Mont Tremblant's elevation
  • Mont Tremblant's latitude
  • Mont Tremblant's slope aspects - more north-facing slopes protect snow later into winter

The snow conditions at Mont Tremblant in April can vary depending on the weather. Typically, the snow will be more packed and harder than earlier in the season, if there are still temperatures dipping into the low 30s and high 20s at night, due to the warmer temperatures and increased sunlight that turn snow into slushier ice. However, if there has been a recent snowfall, the snow may be fresher and softer.

The mountain's snowmaking system can help to maintain good snow conditions, even in warmer temperatures, but it's important to check the snow report for the most up-to-date information. Additionally, it's also important to note that some of the higher elevation runs and shaded areas may have better snow preservation than the lower areas.

Mont Tremblant snow score by month, April in focus

What matters when it comes to snow for April skiing:

The rules of thumb in place for better skiing in March—high elevations and lots of north-facing terrain—hold true in April as well. The difference between April and March is that most ski resorts close up for the year by the second Sunday in April. After that, skiers have a much smaller cohort of ski resorts they can target for trips. Many ski resorts, especially those that are easily driveable from the metro areas of Denver, Salt Lake, San Francisco (Tahoe area) and Seattle (Crystal and Stevens Pass) will alter their close dates depending on the quanitity of snow that remains on their slopes in March. More snow means later closing dates.

One of the ski resorts best known for its April skiing is A-Basin, which enjoys myriad factors in its favor. It has exceedingly high elevations, good amounts of north-facing terrain, and it's easily driveable from Denver, which keeps its slopes crowded—and the revenue flowing to resort coffers—well into May.

There are other gems, too, however. Snowbird is an excellent bet, as is Copper Mountain, whose high elevations and preponderance of north-facing terrain means that its conditions don't peak until late March, and the surfaces at Copper tend to hold up well through April. Telluride closes earlier in April because its location doesn't draw many skiers in cars, but that week or two in April that it is open usually offer good conditions, as the resort's high elecations and north aspects keep upper reaches of the mountain chalky, with the slopes to town giving skiers good corn conditions.

For skiers planning ahead for an April trip, just know that it could be quite warm. But sometimes those April days, especially when a big snowstorm creeps in, can be the best of the year, with fewer skiers competing for the snow and fun days that finish with warm après vibes and cold beer. For the record, this writer's best ski day ever was on April 26, in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon, at Alta. The mountain had closed in mid April, but then it snowed six feet in four days, and Alta announced it would reopen it's doors on a Friday. Not many people were there, but I was. Laps and untracked all day.
