Set in an unspoilt area of lakes and pine forests just 90 minutes from Montreal, the traffic-free village boasts multicoloured houses and cobbled streets and is considered a smaller version of the more famous Whistler near Vancouver.

A previously bankrupt resort, it was bought by developers Intrawest more than a decade ago and has been transformed into an upmarket holiday village catering for visitors all year round, offering activities including hiking, cycling, canoeing and golfing.

It is regularly voted the best ski resort in North East America.

As a result, big names have flocked to the area. One of the creators of the antidepressant drug Prozac built a chalet on the shore’s 14km-long Lac Tremblant.

The French-Canadian motor racing driver Jacques Villeneuve and clothes retailers Tommy Hilfiger and Lawrence Stroll have multi-million pound homes there.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones built a home at the nearby Lac Desmarais several years ago.

The ski resort is eight miles from the village at the foot of a mountain called Mont Tremblant, which means “trembling mountain” in French.

Tremblant has Canada’s largest snow-making system so if the average snowfall of 150 inches fails to materialise on the 628 acres of slopes, more than 1,000 snow cannons kick into action.

The resort caters for all abilities, with its three and a half miles Nansen trail descending the entire South Side at a gentle pace and The Edge sector offering a serious challenge for the advanced skier on the North Side.
