This summer’s Mont-Tremblant trail will be illuminated with light projections and mythical storytelling as giant-seekers must trek through a 1.5 km nocturnal hike to find the slumbering giant.
The adventure starts at the base of Mont-Tremblant. A chairlift transports its investigators to the “Twilight Portal” where a colourful lit path weaves its way through the woods to a series of mysterious checkpoints in pursuit of the giant.
The crusade departs nightly (starting June 14) at 9:15 pm and then every 15 minutes until 10:45 pm and takes roughly an hour to complete.
The course can hold 300 participants at a time.
Prices are age-oriented and range from $11.99 – $27.99 while kids age five and under get to search for a giant for free.
Rumours have already started circulating that the spring’s nice weather has awoken the mammoth. The giant is ready for you but the BIG question is – are you ready for him?
