Everyone has their own story...

 Facts and anecdotes from yesteryear translate into the history of tomorrow….
Collection Brien Benoit

Lac Mercier has been witness to the development of Mont-Tremblant. Everyone who has lived at lac Mercier has left their own small footprint in the history of this magnificent site.

Share with us your experience when you just arrived at lac Mercier, and what you witnessed when the first houses and roads were built along the shore.

Your memories will become an integral part of the « little history » of lac Mercier, and will enrich the stories and anecdotes that will be passed onto future generations.

Collection T. Borduas

So many stories to tell, and so many memories to share.
