Les Sommets won the prestigious Conversion Cup Challenge from the National Ski Areas Association, which rated its resorts as the very best for those wishing to learn how to ski or snowboard. With this distinction, the les Sommets Snow School is strengthening its position as a leader in the ski industry and a pillar in the training of new skiers. It is the first time in the history of the Conversion Cup Challenge that the trophy has been awarded to a resort outside the United States.

Details of improvements for 2019-2020
SOMMET EXPRESS CHAIRLIFT ($7.5M)
Skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts will be warm on the mountain this winter thanks to the company’s largest investment ever: the installation of a heated, six-seater chairlift at Sommet Saint-Sauveur. Supported by the Quebec tourism ministry’s Programme de soutien aux stratégies de développement touristique, this major project evaluated at over $7.5 million will transform the comfort standards for winter sports in Quebec. The new lift replaces the one known as Atomic Express, which was dismantled last April after 34 years of service.

Large front windows will provide an exceptional view of the mountain and huge glass doors can be opened in the spring to allow access to an outdoor terrace.
