There are numerous athlete ambassadors at Mont-Tremblant that can inspire the young and new generation to take on their dreams and compete in extreme sports. Every single year, there is a new talent that breaks onto the scene and deserves to be recognized. Mont-Tremblant is the home of numerous local athletes and provides them with the coveted title of ‘Athlete Ambassador’ throughout their career and recognition process.
One of the main categories of ambassadors are the national athletes who have a long-standing reputation in the industry. Many of the national athletes include Valerie Grenier, Alexis Guimond, Simon Fournier, Tristan Rodgers, Arnaud Gaudet, Jules Lefebvre, Justin Carpentier, and many others.
One of the most famous is Brittany Phelan, a member of the Canadian national team who has been in the professional circuit since her teenage years. She first gained attention by finishing at the top of one of the World Cup circuit events in 2012, finishing 2nd during the 2012-2013 season, and taking the world by storm in the ski cross competition in the 2017 season.
Another professional athlete who is well-known in Mont-Tremblant and the entire extreme sports world is Valerie Grenier. Grenier has become a member of the Canadian national team since 2015 and has made a name for herself in the industry in numerous events, such as the downhill, Super-G, and giant slalom.
Another category of Mont-Tremblant ambassadors includes provincial athletes, who are young athletes in the local area who are seeing their careers take off. Some of the most common athletes include Adrian Ball, Pierick Charest, Hugo Culver, Naomi Urness, Francis Tremblay, and Emile Gaudet.
Mont-Tremblant also features passionate ambassadors, such as Philippe Langevin, Gabriel Gregoire-Leblanc, Gabriel Monette, Sandrine Touchette, and Jerome Henri Albert Page. One of the most popular is Gabriel Leblanc, who has been skiing in Mont-Tremblant since a young age, including succeeding at other sports like hiking, running, biking, split boarding, skateboarding, and snowboarding.
Hall of Fame
The last category of athlete ambassadors is hall of fame athletes, including Erik Guay, Jasey Jay Anderson, Ariane Lavigne, Jefrey Frsich, Caroline Calve, Robin Femy, and Magali Tisseyre.
Erik Guay is one of the hall of fame ambassadors who have called Mont-Tremblant his ‘home.’ Guay is a Canadian alpine ski racer who bases himself in the picturesque town of Mont-Tremblant in Quebec, Canada. The backdrop of the bright white mountains, snow-capped peaks, and blue lakes is the perfect area for Guay to train and test his skills on the mountain.
Although Guay has since retired, he used the Mont-Tremblant area to consistently train and build his career throughout his life. He competed in his first ski race when he was five and started professionally training at just age 12. He placed 2nd in a downhill race at the nearby Lake Louise in 2003 and has not looked back since. Despite injuries early in his career, he was the first man ever from Quebec to win a World Cup men’s downhill skiing race since the early 90s.
He achieved fifth place in two events during the 2010 Winter Olympics, which was a narrow defeat after competing in his hometown of Whistler. Despite the lack of podium finishes, he achieved three podium finishes during the 2010 Alpine Skiing World Cup just a few months later.
Making his way into the 2014 and 2015 seasons, Guay continued to the podium, rehabbing from his recent meniscus injury to his knee, and won a race in the beautiful country of Norway. After his teammate and friend Osborne Paradis suffered a horrific crash in November 2018, Guay decided it was time to retire after a decorated and eventful years in the sport. He achieved five wins and 25 podiums, along with earning the Super-G season title in 2010.
Another popular Hall of Fame ambassador is Jasey Jay Anderson, an alpine snowboarder who believes that Mont-Tremblant is ‘magic!’ He loves every single active adventure sport, such as hiking, kayaking, snowboarding, and cycling. After winning the gold medal in the parallel giant slalom event, he became one of the most well-known Canadian athletes. He also made Olympic history by becoming the first tablet to be on the Canadian national team at six Winter Games.

You could do as you have done every year, giving Mom a card, some flowers, and a meal at her favorite restaurant, but after all she has done for you, you may have been thinking that this is the year that you really want to wow her. We at Tremblant Living have been thinking the same thing, and as we prepare to do something extra special for the most beautiful women in our lives, you can do the same with a gift of a trip to our mountain hometown of Mont-Tremblant!
