Mont Tremblant March Skiing

Mont Tremblant in March: Overview


  • Mont Tremblant has a resilient spring ski season that sees its slopes usually stay open until mid-April
  • The resort's northerly latitude helps keep snow colder compared with some eastern resorts that are further south
  • The 2,100-foot vertical drop gives Mont Tremblant a seven-degrees Fahrenheit temperature gradient from the base area to the peak, which helps preserve snow in the March sun
  • The mountain lacks a great deal of north-facing terrain, which can protect snow in the spring, but most of its terrain is cut straight out of dense hardwood forests, offering shade against the south side of those slopes. Snow here can remain cold until the end of March
  • March is a great time to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Mont Tremblant, with warmer afternoons making the base village a lively place to walk and drink a beer or two


  • As with any eastern ski resort, the threat of rain in the spring is real at Mont Tremblant, but not as pronounced as ski hills further south in the east
  • Mont Tremblant is one of the most storied destinations in the east, and it can draw a crowd in all seasons, which can make lodging expensive. As with most things, booking a VRBO earlier will save cash as the best-priced units will rent quickest

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 snow in March

Data show March is the third 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

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.

Mont Tremblant snow score by month, March in focus

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%+).
