Investments at les Sommets for 2021-2022

New building at Sommet Saint-Sauveur
A brand new building of nearly 5,000 sq. Ft. Located at the foot of the Sommet Express ski lift is currently under construction. The inauguration of the latter is scheduled for December 2021. This building will include several services:

  • New lockers for members: private section with restricted access. The lockers will be spacious, heated, and with a customizable configuration.
  • The repair shop, including the 4-module Mercury maintenance robot
  • A Demo center which will be a unique concept in Quebec
  • A vast 1000 square feet terrace with fireplace presented by Jaguar Land Rover Laval

Jaguar Land Rover Laval Heated Terrace

The 27 X 45-foot terrace, located in the new building near the Sommet Express chairlift, will be heated, equipped with an outdoor natural gas fireplace, and offer take-out access to the brand new café.

On October 22nd, the Jaguar Land Rover Laval team joined us for the official groundbreaking ceremony.

Electronic access control to Sommet Edelweiss

Sommet Edelweiss will implement the RFID system and AXCESS access gates to the lifts. This was the last Les Sommets station switch to this new contactless technology, thus completing this technological transition project. As a result, Sommet Edelweiss season ticket holders and customers will now go directly to the lifts without stopping at the ticket office.

Improvement of our snowmaking systems
Almost half a million dollars has been invested this season to improve the snow conditions at our 5 Summits. However, whether it is through the purchase of new snow cannons, the automation of systems, and the change of specific water supply hoses, the objective remains the same: to offer our customers optimal sliding conditions from the very beginning of the season.

Improved learning ground for beginners
Sommet Saint-Sauveur versant Avila has long been recognized as the ideal destination for learning to ski. Therefore, it is not for nothing that les Sommets won the best Snow School in North America in 2019! Development work is consequently underway to enlarge the learning ground of the school track. New elevations, turns, and obstacles will be added for the coming season, offering fun and challenges to our new skiers and snowboarders. Finally, the improvement of the snowmaking system in the area of the adjacent Pronto piste will allow the entire learning area for beginners to be snowed earlier in the season. This is excellent news for our little ones, impatiently awaiting the start of the season.

New online store
The Sommets will have a brand new online store this winter. Many products will be on sale there, such as equipment, accessories, and clothing.

Several other investments and additions
A new roundabout will now improve your arrival at Sommet Saint-Sauveur on Chemin des Pentes. This modification of the road configuration will optimize traffic flow at the main entrance to the site.
