Trail project

Enviroforet is coming back in full force in the trails this fall

Benoît Prud’homme and his team won a major contract to repair and remodel a number of trails . The scope of the repair and renovation work was created through a study mandated by the city earlier in the spring. The work in Lynx, Deer Mountain and Villa Bellevue will be completed by the end of the season. Some general work will also be done in Diable, Geai Bleu and Chouette. It should be noted that the recent work in Villa Bellevue were done to facilitate grooming for cross-country skiing.

Vélo Mont-Tremblant submitted to the City of Mont-Tremblant vision statement regarding the development and maintenance of the trail network. The principal message was the need for new trails. Many discussions have focused on the development of the Deer Mountain sector. The goal is to maximize the terrain based on current mountain biking trends and to access neighboring properties for a future development of enduro trails. Some layouts have already been done with the City and the works were launched last September 27th. Also, the lack of safe traverse for bikers on Montée Ryan was highlighted and the addition of parking spaces at the tourism office.
Subsequently, a meeting was held recently with the Domaine St-Bernard. The proposed project is essentially aimed at creating one beginner level access trail that would linked the Domaine to existing mountain bike trails. The welcoming station, the parking and the site of the Domain is an asset for the events and users of Vélo M-T.

In short, the Vélo Mont-Tremblant team is working hard to harmonize its vision with that of the City concerning the trails. The communication has greatly improved between the two parties, but it is thanks to your support that we can continue to move forward!
