Mont Tremblant can be a great destination to visit in March, especially for skiers and snowboarders looking to enjoy the last bit of the ski season. The resort's snowmaking system helps maintain good snow conditions throughout the ski season, and March can be a good time to take advantage of off-peak season rates.
March is still a decent bet at Mont Tremblant for other activities such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice-skating and more. If its a warm spring, these opportunities may be fleeting, but Tremblant's latitude in Quebec helps extend the season.
Mont Tremblant is located in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. The resort receives a moderate amount of snowfall during the winter months compared with other ski resorts in the Eastern North American region.
As with most spots, March is considered to be the tail end of the ski season at Mont Tremblant, but the resort can still have excellent snow conditions at that time of year. The resort typically receives the most snowfall in January and February, but it can also receive significant snowfall in March. The snowfall can be more inconsistent during March, however, depending on the weather pattern, with the periodic threat of rain.
Similar to other eastern stalwarts, Mont Tremblant also has a snowmaking system that can help to maintain good snow conditions throughout the ski season, even if natural snowfall is low.
What matters when it comes to snow for March skiing:
Ski areas with higher elevations and more northerly latitudes can keep snow colder when thawing temperatures in March or during warming events degrade other resorts' snowpacks. Aspects have the same affect, so the snow at a ski resort with more east or south-facing slopes will suffer more quickly as the sun grows stronger into March and the later spring.
For that reason, ski resorts with more north-facing terrain will be able to shelter snow more thoroughly into and through March. The most important factors for good snow preservation in spring tend to be elevation and north aspects, so the ski resorts with the highest elevations and the highest percentage of north-facing slopes tend to be those that preserve their snow best. More explanation on this topic can be found on our snow rankings page.
Lots of east and south exposures coupled with cold temperatures at night can put ski slopes into a nasty freeze-thaw process, wherein the ski resort becomes an ice rink overnight and doesn't revert to being skiable until the sun thaws things out. If the sun doesn't come out, however, skiers can be stuck with terrible conditions for days on end.
So, quite simply, in March, look for resorts with high elevations and high percentages of north-facing terrain (~50%+).
