The opening of new glades covering a 50 acre area and a new trail on the mountain is creating a real buzz. The glades are:
Les Vallons : this 9.6 acre difficult level glade is located in rolling terrain. Nestled half way down the Duncan trail, it is also easily accessible by Le Vanier trail a the mid mountain on the North Side.
Dynagriffe: This trail, located between Dynamite and La Griffe Trails, was already nicknamed Dynagriffe by local skiers and boarders. This very difficult 17.3 acre area is accessible by the Expo Express Lift.
Archipel : Access this 11-acre section made up of islands of trees via the Rope Tow. The bottom section is very difficult and can also be reached from the higher Beauchemin and the Axel.
Extension: this new glade on The Edge covers an acre of 18 acres. Of difficult level, it is the extension of the Reaction glade and allows for a long continuous descent through a wooded area. In the process, the Reaction glade was also expanded.
The installation of a new Lowell Thomas Express (LTE) quad high speed chairlift allowed the opening of a new run under the lift. Its name is therefore the abbreviation of the Chairlifts name. The LTE is a short difficult level 2 acre trail that leads directly to the bottom of the new lift. A new glade area was also cleared near the Boiling Kettle. The fixed grip triple Lowell Thomas Chairlift was entirely replaced with a Doppelmayr detachable quad boosting capacity by 600 skiers per hour.
The resort will also continue to increase snow making capacity with the acquisition of 31 high efficiency snow guns and the addition of a new grooming machine.
