  1. I asked Sommet Saint-Sauveur and it will be a mid-sized Uni terminal and with no loading or positioning carpet.
  2. And the news is ..... drumroll. If it rains more than 10 minutes at the water park you get a free ticket. Nice offer but I’ll be honest in saying I was hoping for another new loft or a summit chalet.
  3. Saw this on their facebook page yesterday evening. It doesn't appear to be a media invited event, so I am not sure what it could be.... guess we will find out soon enough today.
  4. New video clip posted today on Facebook by Sommet Saint-Sauveur. It would seem like the carrier arms assembly is different than the typical North American Doppelmayr setup so we may see some European design elements. Would love to see the new lift be a Doppelmayr D-Line. As things start going up for the bottom terminal it will become obvious if it is D-Line or not. Or if we see some Grips. 3D7754F2-8CB1-4836-8961-6BD93B8B6C82.MOV
  5. New photo posted today on Instagram by Sommet Saint-Sauveur. This time, the pouring of concrete for the summit terminal of the new six-pack lift.
  6. This just looks awesome. I always wanted to do the AKAMP, but the past editions looked a little intimidating to me, with hiking up, or rope tows. This year it looks more reasonable, especially with the chairlift and the flatter runout at the bottom of the slope. When the snow conditions are a bit choppy or soft like they would be end of June, makes for an easier time trying to stop when you have speed. Really nice setup this time around. I was also under the impression in the past that it was more of a training camp than just a summer snow jam for freestyle and casual skiing. Love the chairlift video too. Thanks for sharing. Seems like you are having a great time. I'm curious when you mention that there was free surfing lessons at the wave pool for AKAMP participants, and also access to the waterslides (which ones did they keep open for that)?
  7. Wow looks great this year. Little surprised that they finally decided to use a ski lift of the mountain than the original walk up and then later the rope tow. As always the snow seems to be holding out quite well. How is the terrain this year since it is located more near the bottom of the hill than before? Do you get a full AKAMP pass Ocean? Or do you just go up for one day?
  8. Just saw this online. The Balsams is now up for sale. It would seem like they are seeking an owner. The current development team led by Les Otten would stay in place to advise and move the redevelopment forward. https://www.cbredealflow.com/handler/modern.aspx?pv=AVYIy7hOLZiqeNVoKWDnOuJVgbAS7Qh_eHHSOSwTcYc#_top What i just wrote could be incorrect from misunderstanding the situation but the whole thing is honestly getting quite confusing.
  9. Shocking and sad news. Here's another article with more or less the same information: https://www.enbeauce.com/actualites/faits-divers/366352/un-incendie-sest-declare-dans-un-garage-de-mecanique-du-mont-orignal?fbclid=IwAR3sxQPhuqnF4qdBH2J7uVc3xMuAA2DLdkiOdAAI3vqIlbPunNk-xrFddqU Let's hope that things can turn around quickly so that it doesn't have an effect on the coming ski season. From the photos on Facebook, it appears that the fire occurred a bit of a distance away from the actual detachable chairlift, which is good news atleast. Fires like this remind me of the one that happened several years back on Tremblant's TGV or the chalet last year at Val St Come... Sad.
  10. Just saw this posted today by the mountain on twitter. Seems like all has been sorted out. Granite Gorge Official Public Statement: There will be no auction of the property as the bank loan terms are being satisfied. Granite Gorge is looking forward to a great 2019-2020 season, our 17th consecutive season of providing safe, fun ski/tube/ride!
  11. Here are some new pictures posted today on Facebook and Instagram by Sommet Saint-Sauveur on the new lift install.
  12. It’s not over yet! One more ski day tomorrow from 10-1 and then water park! Killer hike though Ocean. The snow is really holding up this year. Which way did you go up?
  13. For those interested... In a sick twist of events, Sommet Saint-Sauveur will reopen for skiing tomorrow from 10am to 1pm. The waterpark also opens at 10am for the season. Ski the morning, splash the afternoon away. What a record. Last to operate in the East, beating out Killington. https://www.sommets.com/fr/montagne-de-ski/sommet-saint-sauveur/heures-d-ouverture/

  15. Just saw this on the Facebook story for Sommet Saint-Sauveur? I think I know who this may be... Nice job making the story!
