The Mont-Orford ski resort held an official inauguration for its brand-new quadruple lift on the Alfred-Desrochers slope last Friday.

“This is another historic moment for the ski resort, and one which makes us very proud,” said Jacques Demers, President of the Corporation. “This will greatly improve the offering to skiers.”

The new Doppelmayr quadruple lift is significantly faster than the old double chair lift, which dated back to 1965: it can carry skiers up to the top of the slope in less than nine minutes and its boarding capacity has been doubled.

“This investment of $4.5 million will make this slope for beginners and intermediates even more accessible to families and people who are learning to ski,” said Simon Blouin, general manager. “Obviously, this will also relieve congestion on the Giroux Nord slope and offer ideal slopes for snow school lessons.”
