Driving directions to Mont Tremblant

Dear Colleagues,

For those of you driving to Mont Tremblant, directions from the Montreal airport to Mont Tremblant are available on Google Maps. Essentially, you take Highway 15N north from Montreal for an hour or more and then you will definitely see some signs to Mont Tremblant. Alternatively, you can simply go into Google Maps and use "1000 chemin des Voyageurs, Mont Tremblant" as the destination, and then you can have the map also.

Mont Tremblant is a very nice little city surrounded by lakes. Away from the city, at the ski hill, they built a pedestrian village, and this is where the congress centre is. When you get to the pedestrian village, you just need to park at the bottom of the hill where all the cars are (the free parking lot is a little further away), and then walk to the entrance of the village. There will be a "Volkswagen" branded gondola in front of you and the congress centre is just to the right of it. You do not need to go up the hill very far. This where the registration desk for the conference will be. The hotel is actually divided into two towers on both sides of the gondola. The hotel registration desk is close by also, to the left of the gondola, and around to the left behind the building. They are used to lots of tourists here, so you can easily ask anyone if you are not sure.

See you there.

Scott Kiss

2013 CLC

For those of you who have not been there, Mont Tremblant is a beautiful summer/ski resort located 130 km north of Montreal (www.tremblant.ca). We will be located on the ski hill in the new village. This village is essentially a visitor’s paradise, packed full of activities (eg. Luge, rock climbing, hiking., mountain biking, fishing, etc.). A gondola takes visitors to the top of the mountain for a spectacular view, hike or bird of prey show. If you are not into the outdoor scene, many bars and a casino are nearby. The Mont Tremblant area is also blessed with at least 5 world class golf courses. Provided the weather is nice, there will be no end of activities for us to enjoy.
