 Winter 2021 operational details

(Updated January 7, 2021) - During the press conference on January 6th, 2021, the government, along with public health officials of Quebec confirmed that the practice of individual outdoor sports remains authorized. Great news for ski and snowboard enthusiasts! However, some details are yet to be clarified and will come from government authorities and the Association of Quebec Ski Resorts (ASSQ). Certain measures announced will have an impact on our clients and our employees and several scenarios are currently being studied.

Please be assured that all of our clients directly affected by these new measures will be informed in the coming days as to the details and the various options available to them. We ask them to avoid contacting our customer service and to wait for our communications. We will need a few days to adjust our operations.

This is excellent news for the ski industry in the current context.

Will have their season pass revoked on a permanent basis for the remainder of the season.
