Tremblant Beneath The Stars Returns For Its 19th Edition
As part of the 2014 edition of Tremblant Beneath the Stars held August 8 and 9, Tremblant and le Club des astronomes amateurs de Laval together with Laser Quantum International are presenting educational activities for the whole family both in the pedestrian village, and at the top of the highest peak in the Laurentians.

Panoply of Activities under the Starry Skies : For visitors to fully enjoy a weekend under the sign of astronomy and the great outdoors, Tremblant is featuring a varied event programme that includes observing the sun through a telescope equipped with special filters and safe for your eyes, setting off on a guided night hike, observing shooting stars through a powerful laser pointer and joining twenty or so amateur astronomers gathered at the summit with their telescopes and observation gear. In regards to summit activities, please note that hiking up is free while lift tickets can be purchased for the scenic gondola. A detailed event programme can be viewed at www.tremblant.ca.
