While this investment will cut lift time in half and serve more skiable terrain, skiers and snowboarders will enjoy it starting on December 15, 2013. Also, its path will be modified and optimized to provide access to the entire mountain, not only the expert area. It is also the biggest investment made in Quebec’s ski industry for the upcoming season.
