A lively weekend of world-class racing and entertainment
Mont-Tremblant, October 26, 2023 – Tremblant will host an historic event in Quebec, on Saturday and Sunday, December 2-3, welcoming the world’s best female giant slalom skiers, for two days of racing, on the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup calendar. Throughout the weekend, fans can look forward to a special programming to add to the already electrifying atmosphere of the race.
On top of the action at the finish line where watching the athletes is already exhilarating, a host of activities are spilling over into the pedestrian village with visitors and participants invited to take part in colourful programming that blends entertainment, free musical performances, and a festive atmosphere to celebrate both the athletes’ performances and experience the legendary joie de vivre for which Tremblant is known around the world.
Friday, December 1st
A large stage will be set up on Place des Voyageurs, at the bottom of the pedestrian village. Starting at 4 p.m., a musical atmosphere will welcome spectators to kick off the World Cup festivities, followed by an evening with Valaire, a Quebec band renowned for its eclectic, dance-inducing pop sounds, who will make the crowd sway to the rhythm of the group’s festive songs from 5 p.m. onwards, transforming each of their performances into a real happening.
Saturday, December 2
Starting in the morning, the village gets into party mode and sets the tone for the day.
The first run of the giant slalom starts at 11 a.m., with 80 female athletes from all over the world competing for a place in the top 30. The second run for those 30 athletes starts at 2.15 p.m. Between runs, old-time games await spectators on Place St-Bernard, and there’ll be plenty of entertainment in all the village’s shops and restaurants.
Once the race is over, head to the Place des Voyageurs stage to dance to the sound of the DJ, starting at 4:30 p.m. A medal ceremony followed by a bib draw for the following day’s race take place from 6:30 p.m. This ceremony is hosted by former national ski team member and Quebecer Marie-Michèle Gagnon, accompanied by host Randy Fergusson.
After the trophies, the celebration!
At 7 p.m., it’s time for a music show featuring Laurence Nerbonne, Marie-Pierre Arthur, Sara Dufour and Les Louanges, directed by Antoine Gratton.
After the performances of these local artists, the party continues with a DJ on the open-air dance floor, until 9 p.m. Then, night owls can head to the village bars to keep the party going until the wee hours of the morning.
Sunday, December 3
Part of the scenario is repeated on Sunday, for the second giant slalom race, where entertainment and DJs keep the village buzzing. Heat times are the same as the previous day, but this time medals are awarded in the finish area of the racetrack. But the party doesn’t end there! More festivities are on in the bars and restaurants to celebrate the skiers and close the evening in the same atmosphere that only a World Cup can bring.
