Ascent Trip Report

HIKING THE MONT TREMBLANT RIDGE, REFERED-TO AS THE ROOF OF THE LAURENTIENS.....Mont Tremblant(Pic Johansen), Pic Pangman, The Edge, Pic White.

The popular ski center "Station Mont Tremblant", in Parc National du Mont Tremblant in the Laurentiens, has a network of good hiking trails on the south side of the mountain...... four trails ascend to the main summit ridge. The TH for all of the hiking trails is at the base of the montain, "Base Versant Sud", elev. 265 meters, just behind the Ski Village.......this is where you access the gondola to the Main Ski Chalet on Pic White's (Grand Manitou) summit, elev. 878 meters.
A hiking trail map is posted at the TH and at a number main trail junctions - a copy of this map is available at the Ski Village's information center.

I ascended the les Caps/le Vertigo trails to the col (Pic White/The Edge), then a left turn (a right here would take you up to Pic White) on les Sommets trail that follows the main ridge over The Edge and Pic Pangman to Mont Tremblant(Pic Johansen), highest point on the ridge. I returned/descended the same way after going over to Pic White for a good break.

Overall the trails, well maintained, are moderate with no steep sections to speak of...... the round trip is about 19 km, 7 hours.
