Mont Orignal - Major Fire Destroys 3 Buildings

Recommended Posts

Sad news out of the Beauce Lac-Etchemin region today where a major fire has destroyed 3 buildings at the Mont Orignal Ski Area. The fire was first reported at around 1:30 this afternoon in the main garage, and had spread to two other workshops nearby. This is quite a huge loss for the hill as they lost the motor for the Pomalift, approximately 13 chairs off their six seater detachable chairlift, a number of skidoos, and 3 BR grooming machines. Thankfully no one was injured and everyone was safe. For more details on the story, here is the link to the Journal de Quebec.

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.
