Who does the snow clearing on public roads?
The staff of the Ville de Mont-Tremblant’s Public Works Department.
How much snow triggers a snow removal operation?
A snow removal operation is usually triggered when ± 5 cm of snow or more has accumulated on the ground.
Are there other snow removal operations after the storm?
Yes, the Public Works staff picks up snow in the various Ville hubs: downtown, the Village and Mont Tremblant Resort, in an alternating pattern. The snow is subsequently transported to snow deposit sites.
On average, this is done ± 10 times during a winter season.
Is it forbidden to park in the streets during the winter?
Yes, from November 15 to April 1, between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m., parking is prohibited on public roads under penalty of towing and a fine of $30. The purpose of this bylaw is to allow snow removal teams to maintain the highways in a timely and efficient manner.
Is it forbidden to dump snow in the streets?
Every resident must be sure never to obstruct the sidewalks and the street when clearing his or her yard, entry or driveway. It is strictly forbidden to throw snow or ice on sidewalks, streets, public places and municipal streams.

Why do snow removal trucks come out even when it is not snowing?
Several factors may require operators to come out even when it is not snowing. Rain, wind and extreme cold may require application of an abrasive. Some maintenance work must also be done, including the following examples.
The Ville removes the snow from its fire hydrants when only 45 cm (18 inches) of them are visible or when access is difficult for the user. Please avoid putting the snow from your property on the fire hydrants, for everyone’s safety.
The field operations team must remove ice from the drain inlets when required (winter rain or rapid snowmelt). If you notice poor water flow, please contact the Public Works Department at 819-425-8614, ext. 2600.
