The Corporation Ski & Golf Mont-Orford announced, on Wednesday, their plans for an investment of more than $11 million into the Mont Orford Ski Resort over the course of the coming year. Meant as a way to help the space become a year-round attraction, the work is set to be carried out between May 6 and November 1 of 2019. Pascal Mongeau, General Manager of the corporation, broke the work down into three main components. Most noticeable at first glance, the project will involve the construction of a large new annex to the resort’s chalet, which will help move all services into one structure. “We wanted to create an improved and user-friendly customer experience,” the general manager said, describing the future chalet as a kind of one-stop-shop for visitors’ needs while pointing out that the design was planned in such a way as to integrate into the existing structure and keep the mountain as the main attraction.
