Mont-Tremblant’s best shopping is situated on the twisting main streets of the village. Closed off to cars and trucks, the cobbled streets are left solely to shoppers. Park your car in one of the spacious parking lots at the base of the village, then wander upward toward the ski lifts and Place St. Bernard — the shopping village is located between the parking lot and the mountain.
Tremblant’s shopping areas are divided into two sections. In the lower village, there’s a collection of small white cottages that make up what locals call “Vieux Tremblant” (Old Tremblant). These are the original buildings of Mont-Tremblant, built when the ski resort first opened in 1939. The cottages house a mix of restaurants, bars and a few shops, including a grocery store.
Follow the cobbled path up from Vieux Tremblant and you’ll arrive at the main “upper” village. Larger boutiques are located here, including galleries, bookstores, toy stores, fashion boutiques for men and women, ski shops, bakeries, chocolate shops and big-name retailers such as Roots and Helly Hansen.
Remember, this is a ski resort, and as a result, very hilly. The village of Tremblant is built on an incline, so walking can be strenuous. If you’re not able to walk uphill, there is a free gondola at the base of Vieux Tremblant that will whisk you to Place St. Bernard at the top of the main shopping area, allowing you to wander down through the village.
