First visit?

What to plan for a successful mountain visit? Here is some relevant information to know that will help you have an unforgettable day at les Sommets.

Choose your mountain

All of our ski resorts have suitable learning areas. Formerly called "bunny hill," these are now actual ski areas designed and built for learning to ski. Our resorts also offer beginner slopes (green circle), Snow Schools and rental services. All that remains is to choose the mountain you want to visit first!

Insider's tip : Sommet Saint-Sauveur versant Avial has the largest learning terrain. It also has a mini-double chairlift that is greatly appreciated by young and less young beginners.

Begin in our Intro-Plus Zone

The Intro-Plus Zone allows skiers and snowboarders to learn in a safe and delimited environment where the configuration of the terrain naturally controls speed and turns. This innovative profiling eliminates the apprehension of the descent while enhancing the pleasure of sliding. Available at all of our Sommets.

Progress to the top

Once you are comfortable skiing or snowboarding in our Intro-Plus Zones, you can then head to the chairlift that will transport you to the top of the mountain. Make sure you are in control of your equipment; know how to brake quickly and make turns. Is it the case? Go to one of our beginner trails (green circle) to continue your progress.

Be safe on the slopes and don't hesitate to ask one of our employees for help if you have any questions. We are here for you!

Tickets and Passes

How do GoPasse tickets work (RFID) ?

GoPasse cards are small, rigid electronic cards equipped with RFID technology. Whether for seasonal passes or daily tickets, access to our facilities is possible with GoPasse cards. The days of paper ski tickets are over! Slip the card into a pocket near your abdomen. When you are at the chairlift, control gates will automatically open as you pass. However, it is essential not to have a cell phone or keys in the same pocket because it could create interference. Another good news is that the GoPasse is environmentally friendly! Please do not throw it away. On your next visit, you can recharge it online on our website. There will be no more waiting at the ticket booth. You will be able to go to the chairlifts directly.

How to obtain my season pass?

Once you have completed the online purchase of your season pass, you can come and collect it directly at the mountain. Then, we will take a photo of you before printing your pass. When the season is over, please don't throw it away! Your GoPasse card will be reusable for the next few years.

How to recharge my GoPass?

Whether for a day ticket or a seasonal pass, it is possible to reload your GoPasse on sommets.com. You will have the option to associate your GoPasse (WTP number) during the purchase transaction process.

What is the validities of my pass?

The Mountain

I am a beginner, where do I start?

Several explanatory videos are available on our YouTube channel. In addition, this “Frequently Asked Questions” section is also an excellent place to get acquainted with the sport.

However, we recommend that beginners take a snowboarding lesson (private or in a group). The teacher will teach you the basics of the sport and the general operation of the mountain (different kinds of slopes, how to take the chairlifts).

If I hurt myself on the mountain, what do I do?

If an injury occurs on the mountain, please seek the assistance of another skier to notify a chairlift operator. A patroller will then be dispatched to assist you.

What equipment do I need?

  • If you are skiing, you will need skis, bindings and ski boots. Poles are not necessary to start. However, if your equipment is new, borrowed, or a bit outdated, we strongly recommend that you visit one of our specialists at the Repair Shop to evaluate your ski equipment and make sure everything is safe.

  • For snowboarding, you will need a board, binding as well as boots. Be careful; make sure that the boots fit well into the bindings. Then, visit one of our specialists at the Repair Shop to evaluate your snowboarding equipment and make sure everything is safe.

  • Wearing a helmet is strongly recommended when skiing and snowboarding. It is mandatory in snow parks.
  • Goggles are optional and usually not necessary for beginners. However, wearing ski goggles becomes necessary when riding fast (intermediate or advanced level) to avoid wind in your eyes.

  • Warm clothing suitable for outdoor physical activity:

    • Warm stockings
    • Snow pants
    • Coat
    • Warm mittens/gloves
    • Collar or neck warmer
    • Long, tight-fitting underwear (like jumpsuits or leggings). Wearing jeans or sweatpants is not recommended.


Missing something?

No problem, our rental department and our stores will meet your needs without even leaving your home.

Do I have to wear a helmet at all time?

Wearing a helmet is not mandatory but highly recommended. Moreover, the vast majority of skiers and snowboarders use it. In our snow parks, however, wearing a helmet is mandatory.

When does the season start and end?

  • The million-dollar question! For Sommet Saint-Sauveur, the opening and closing dates are not defined in advance. So we follow the weather. As soon as the temperatures drop below -3c, we start our snow guns on the mountain. In some good years, Sommet Saint-Sauveur began its season in October. For the end date, it all depends on the remaining snow on the ground. We have a saying that says: "As long as there is snow, there will be skiing!". "
  • For our satellite stations (Olympia, Gabriel, Morin Heights and Edelweiss), the season usually starts at the beginning of December and ends at the end of March. But, of course, it all depends on the weather conditions.

Consult here the history of Sommet Saint-Sauveur openings and closings dates. The record? A closure on June 8, 2019! The Water Park was even open as skiers went down.

Who can ride your snow parks?

Snow parks are trails dedicated to jumps and modules (rails, boxes, etc.) intended for advanced skiers and snowboarders. Different sizes of modules are available. Children under 12 must be accompanied. Specific rules must also be observed in parks (ex., not stopping at the bottom of a jump). If this is your first time, we suggest you seek advice from one of our Park Rangers.

When to seek help from a patroller?

Patrollers can assist you at all times on the mountain. Whether it is for an injury or to obtain information, the role of the patroller is to guide skiers and snowboarders in complete safety.

How GoPasse cards work

Using RFID technology, our day tickets and our seasonal passes are now on GoPasse cards. No more paper tickets!

Step 1 - Borne GoPass (kiosk)

You will find an automated GoPasse kiosks installed outside the ticket booths when you arrive at the mountain. By scanning your digital ticket (QR code), the terminal will give you your GoPasse card. This card will be automatically read at the gates later on. First off, strategically place your GoPasse in your coat. Please put it in the upper part of your body all by itself, isolated from any electronic device, cell phone or aluminum foil found in gum, to avoid any interference. Please do not make a hole in your GoPasse card; it could ruin the chip inside it. Your GoPasse is now valid for the next five years. So please don’t lose it. You’ll be able to reload it later online. Now that you’ve placed your card in your coat let’s move on to the gates.

 

Step 2 - The Gates

Fitted with antennas, the GoPasse gates, situated near the chairlifts, will read your card automatically. No need to search through your multiple layers of clothing! Ski up to the pannels, wait in between the panels and ski on through. Suppose you don’t get through gates, back up and place the body part where your card is located near the panels. There you go, enjoy your day! 

Step 3 - Online reload

Your GoPasse is now valid for the next five years. So the days of waiting in line at the ticket booth are over. You can now reload your GoPasse online, straight from the comfort of your own home.
