A $14.1-million investment has been launched to refresh Tremblant’s guest and sports experience, with $10.3 million being directed on-mountain and $3.8 million on a major Aquaclub La Source makeover.
As part of a five-year investment plan announced last March, Alterra Mountain Company has invested $17 million toward the current slide season’s on-mountain upgrades, from a global $555-million investment in its family of emblematic destinations. The latest announcement also includes $1,684,600 received in August by Station Mont Tremblant from the Quebec government, within the context of its Tourism Development Strategy Support Program.
This subsequent on-mountain investment will primarly serve to boost snowmaking capacity. For instance, Versant Soleil’s Algonquin trail will be better equipped to offer skiers additional beginner and intermediate terrain, and over a longer period of time.
“A more ‘performant’ snowmaking system will allow us to keep this sector of the mountain open longer, a timely upgrade given the recent announcement of the new $45M C Hôtels Tremblant development project,” said Patrice Malo, Station Mont-Tremblant president. “The addition of about 90 extra snowguns to our fleet will optimize our snowmaking capacity and boost production to a very impressive 87 feet of snow across one acre, in only 24 hours.
This latest investment also covers the acquisition of two Prinoth grooming machines ‒ a Bison and a Husky ‒ as well as maintenance work on the Express Gondola, and Phase II of Le Grand Manitou renovations comprising washrooms on all three floors and roof replacement.
Next winter also marks the introduction of a new food truck concept to enhance the on-mountain food service offer.
The transformation of Aquaclub La Source will renew the indoor activity offer so that rain or shine, families have access to an all-new waterpark proposing a refreshed aquatic experience. The complex will feature four water slides, 35 interactive water games, an indoor jetted tub and new fitness centre.
