  1. Just got this email from Mont Ste-Marie This is the first in the Ottawa/Gatineau area to address the next ski season. This seems like a logistical nightmare. Msg below: An Important Update for all Mont Ste-Marie Customers. Hello to all Friends of Mont Ste-Marie I hope everyone is having a fun and safe summer. It has been a busy summer at Mont Ste-Marie with everyone taking advantage of this fantastic weather to enjoy the trails, tennis, golf, and beach. Tomorrow will mark 4 months since we were shut down on March 15th. Since that time, our world has changed. What could not have been imagined 4 months ago is now common place. So, the question everyone wants answered is “what is going to happen this winter at Mont Ste-Marie?”. The answer is that Mont Ste-Marie, like other ski resorts in Canada, will more than likely (based on what we know today) be opening at 50% capacity in our lodge and on our lifts. This means that on our chairlift that seats 4 we will only be able to sit 2 unless you are a family living in the same home and so on… Our goal is to provide a superior ski experience and in order to achieve this for the good of all skiers, we will have a daily maximum of lift tickets available. This way, we will have the space in the lodge and minimal lift lines at both Cheval and Vanier. In order to control the amount of lift tickets sold on a specific day all tickets will need to be purchased in advance online. Two types of tickets will be sold online in each age category: 1) GUARANTEED Lift Ticket (GLT) is a ticket for a specific date that you want to come ski, OR 2) the FLEX Ticket, which gives you the chance to pick and choose your day of skiing (but hurry and reserve your date as tickets could be sold out for your wanted day). Plan ahead to guarantee your ski days for this winter. We will be starting lift tickets sales with our new online sales platform on September 1st . Both the GLT and FLEX tickets are transferable. In the event we do not open due to weather reasons, the GLT will become a FLEX Ticket. Our pricing has not been set but it will reflect a balance between the need to operate at 50% capacity and provide a fantastic overall superior ski experience given the current situation. The ULTIMATE and BEST way to ski remains the purchase of a season pass, which allows you the freedom to ski any day without pre-booking. Season Passes will go back on sale by September 1st. There is a positive aspect to all of this in that the mountain will not be as busy especially during weekends and holidays. Fewer skiers during the day will mean that the grooming will be preserved longer each day. Enjoy the rest of summer and start planning now for the days you would like to come skiing this winter so that when lift tickets go on sale on, you will be ready. Guarantee your ski days by buying early. Thanks to all, Bob Sudermann Owner and President
  2. What a difference a couple weeks and a couple big snow falls make. Mont Ste Marie was in peak "Winter Wonderland" mode on Sunday. Over 10cms had fallen overnight and the snow would come down heavy the rest of the day. The 1200ft vertical mountain was 100% open including all the glades. The drive up was a little greasy and we got stuck behind a fleet of plows up oh boy was it worth it. The steeps were deep and the glades were fresh. What else can I say we got soaked and our legs were burned but we stayed till last chair. Get it while its good! Dustin Cook is snowed in. Caroussel Sous-bois Going into Deep Purple Besty I think
  3. From the Calabogie Newsletter: Up and at ‘em snow lovers – the mountain is open Saturday and Sunday. $25 tickets Lifts are on 9AM to 4PM. Our mountain ops team has O’Brien’s and Shantyman open from top to bottom along with the beginner bowl. Shake off the summer sand and get the winter vibe at The Peaks, the big mountain close to home. From the MSM newsletter: We are Open this Saturday and Sunday from 9-4pm We will be opening this weekend Saturday and Sunday from 9-4pm with the Vanier Chairlift. Mont Ste-Marie has had substantial natural snow combined with snowmaking will provide fantastic groomed conditions on Serenade and Calve. Trekking opportunities will be available on Crescendo. Apres Ski in the Ryan II Bar will begin at 2pm each day. See you on the slopes! Junior Ticket (17 and under) $19 and Adult $34
  4. From the Mont Ste-Marie E-bulletin Yeehaw!!!Opening day will be Friday December 15th at 9am We have been waiting for this weather forecast and our patience and yours has paid off. Consistent winter temperatures are arriving this weekend and we are ready. Snowmaking will be going 24/7 and there is 15cm of natural snow in the forecast. This is promising to be a strong opening day and the kick-off to a great ski season. The firepit will be roaring and the apres ski in the bar will be the epicenter for good times with the re-launch of our Mont Ste-Marie Lager Beau's Beer. See you on the slopes!
