seasonal daily ER4 service starts 12/14 through 4/5.

Is this the only scheduled commercial service at YTM??

Yes I believe so!

Personally I'm not surprised. The drive from YUL to Mont-Tremblant cis usually around 2 hours, so it makes sense for the area to have its own air service. I wonder if Air Canada will follow up with YYZ-YTM service.

Intresting service. I was under the impression that Tremblant was more of a drive market resort from New England for US skiiers. On CO web site it's pricing at $401 for Dec 14th-21st, while YUL is pricing at $25, and just for giggles I looked at Eagle County and it's $475.
I don't want to get into the debate about East Coast Skiing and Rocky Mountain Skiing, but who's is flying from NYC to Tremblant(I know it's at very long drive), or is the resort looking for connections from futher a field? And I assume Tremblant must be helping the cost of this flight. Plus, I assume YMT has immigration and customs, but no pre clearance.
Thanks!

Voyageur AW has operated YYZ-YTM with the Dash-7 several years ago, 2x weekly during ski season.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Being a New Englander, I would say most people I know just go up to northern New England (ME, NH, VT) for thier skiing needs. I'm sure there is a Canadian market, but I'd say it's not very big from New England specifically.

Interesting news. I figured this would happen sooner or later. Voyageur also did YKF-YTM charters this past winter.

What I was trying to say, for US skiiers, Tremblent would be in easy reach of folks from New England. I know it's another 2 hours on from Montreal. It seems that Tremblant is trying a marketing approach to get folks from outside the drive market in the US, who would otherwise fly to Denver or Vancouver etc.  Smile

got it. At only 50 seats per day, it shouldn't be hard to get enough folks from all over the CO system to feed this flight.

Wow, very interesting. Definitely a shocker. I would have never thought. Interesting it is winder only for skiing. I was there last summer (and will be going back in two weeks) and the place is kicking with not only Americans but also Europeans enjoying the High Euro and low Canadian dollar (though no longer low for Americans - almost at par now) It seems like Mont Tremblant is also a great escape from Northeastern cities. I wonder if we might see it year round of Winter and then again summer seasonal.

I wonder what made XJ execs in Houston or Newark say let's fly to Mont Tremblant, Quebec?

PS> I just realized it is La Macaza airport that was changed to civilian. wow!

I think the flight will do very well. I'm just not sure how the ERJ will be able to handle all of the skis/ snowboards considering almost every passenger on board will have them.

This is great news for us as I work for a tour operator who market Tremblant. My only worry or questions is, what is the cargo capacity on that perticuliar type of aircraft? 50 passengers with probably a pair of ski each. I just wonder if the ERJ can carry all of it.

Cheers!

Not to get trip-reporty, but:

According to Ski Magazine's rankings (from 2006, I believe) Tremblant is ranked as the top ski area in Eastern North America.

When my wife and I went there we flew IND-CVG-YUL and then took a coach bus from YUL to Mt. Tremblant. The cost for the bus was CDN30 or CDN40/person...not sure if that was for r/t or o/w. The only other options would have been 1) to rent a car r/t from YUL instead of taking the bus, and then continue paying the rental fee while we were at Mt. Tremblant, even though we had no need for a car while there (pedestrian village), or 2) do a pair of o/w car rentals. Either of those options would have been more than the bus. So I would absolutely pay a little extra to have flown IND-EWR-YMT instead of paying that money for the bus...assuming reasonable transportation existed between YMT and the resort area.

Doesn't Voyageur also operate a seasonal flight from Newark to Mont-Tremblant & vice-versa?

Good to hear. I wish them good luck and congrats on being innovative by pushing Tremblant. I flew YUL-LHR on BA a while back one winter and the British women next to me had spent a week or two at Mont Tremblant.. not their first trip. They claimed it was a better overall experience than the Austrian Alps resorts.. whoa... hard to believe but hey if they're going home with that sort of mindset it looks like Tremblant might show up eventually on the radar of some other air carriers. Nice to see. I've always enjoyed going there... but the drive up from Montreal especially in the Fall with all the leaves changing colours is also amazing.. oh and maybe they'll strap all the skis to the roof of the fuselage of the ERJ, LOL

Isn't Mont Tremblant's code YFJ? Looking at Nav Canada's metar and airport diagrams it seems that way.


Promise me you'll always leave the ground

Apparently they still do, although I'm not sure where they sell the tickets.
