Quebec’s Saint-Sauveur Valley Resorts Invest In Trails, Snowmaking, Snowpark
The Saint-Sauveur valley ski resorts – Mont Saint-Sauveur, Mont Avila, Mont Olympia, Ski Morin Heights and Ski Mont Gabriel – are all making improvements for the ski season.
Mont Saint-Sauveur and Mont Avila are making a $1.5 million investment on their trails, Snopark, and Pavillion. Saint-Sauveur’s LaPlagne trail will have more snowmaking, the upper section of 70 West Trail is being expanded to twice its current size, and the Pavillion is getting a major facelift including renovations to the Snow School, rental and repair desks, and the shop. It’s the end of gridlock in these areas. Mont Avila’s Rockstar MSS Snopark has added new rails for new challenges.
Mont Olympia is getting a new double-diamond glade this season. The area is currently in the process of naming the glade. Riders will find four new set-ups at The Wood Park.
Lots of mountain work at Ski Morin Heights with the addition of five new trails, including three glades and two backways, allowing the area to open two additional trails during the week. The area also is offering a new backcountry program that will provide guided tours and specialized Dynastar equipment. You now can ski off-piste to get a taste of backcountry skiing.
New RFID AXESS gates will be added at Ski Mont Gabriel. That means convenience as paper tickets are replaced with RFID GoPasse Cards. Sun lovers will be happy to learn the beach chairs will be back on the South Side on top of the O’Connell trail.
