MONT-TREMBLANT, QC, July 19, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Tonight at Tremblant was the Tonga Lumina pre-launch, a unique Moment Factory creation. Both global leaders, the pair of Québec giants joined their savoir faire to develop an immersive, interactive and illuminated night walk that begins with a ride on the Flying Mile lift and from the mid-way station, plunges spectators into a universe that showcases the mountain's natural elements.

"It is with great pleasure that we see this major project come to life, one that merges the mountain's specificities and our resort vacationing knowledge with the creativity, talent and expertise of the Moment Factory team," said Patrice Malo, Station Mont Tremblant's President and CEO. "In addition to being a perfect complement to the resort's varied offer, this new first-rate evening adventure is tailored to suit visitors of all ages."

"It was a genuine pleasure working with Station Mont Tremblant's team, creating a new immersive multimedia experience for the region's visitors and residents. Inspired by Mont Tremblant and its legends, Tonga Lumina is our latest night walk that invites visitors to rediscover this magnificent site at night, and enjoy a different type of adventure in nature," explained Moment Factory producer Jonathan St-Onge.

The Legend
Legend has it that a sleeping giant calls Mont Tremblant home, and that upon each of his awakenings, his descendants would return to this sacred land to seek out his ancient wisdom. Now in our modern times, as the forest is cloaked in shades of green, the giant beckons to us as well. Donning the amulet of the forgotten people, curious, observant spirits follow a mysterious path deep into the heart of the mountain, to discover the secret he wishes to share.
