WINTER 2020-2021 OPERATION PLAN
Here are the general operation plan and the Covid-19 preventive measures for the 2020-2021 season at this time. This page is subject to change without notice and according to public health guidelines.
Compliance with all measures that are put in place is a shared responsibility between the resort and our customers. We thank you for your precious collaboration.
Let’s work together to stay open and ski all winter long!
See below the Quebec Ski Area Association’s table summarizing the measures that have been approved by the Government and public health department.
As of Monday March 8th, the resort is in the ORANGE zone.
No one is allowed to visit the station in the presence of symptoms similar to those of COVID-19.
Your collaboration is essential; please apply the following recommendations at all times:
- Wearing a face covering indoors, in line-ups and on the ski lifts (see the FACE COVERINGS section below for more details).
- Respect a distance of 2 meters between each individual.
- Wash or disinfect hands frequently.
- Cover nose and mouth with elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Discard tissues immediately after use and wash hands.
Plan to bring 2 different face coverings: one for indoors (procedure mask or cloth mask) and one for outdoors (like a neck warmer*).
- Inside all our buildings (chalets, ski shop, rental shop, bathrooms, etc.):
Wearing a face mask is mandatory for anyone aged 10 years or older.
- In the lift lines and while riding the lift:
Wearing a face covering* is mandatory from the age of 3.
- During a lesson with the Snow School:
Wearing a face covering (like a neck warmer)* is mandatory for all skiers 3 years old and older for the duration of the lesson.
* It can be a neck warmer, balaclava, neck gaiter or other accessories well adjusted that covers mouth and nose. This accessory should be made of 2 layers of fabric, tight stitches and large enough to cover both the mouth and nose.
Inter-regional travel is not recommended. However, such travel is not prohibited and the government encourages physical activity for health benefits.
Visitors will be limited only to the practice of their sport while onsite and are requested to arrive ready to ski.
It is everyone’s responsibility to follow the Public Health guidelines to end this pandemic as quickly as possible and allow us to practice our favorite sport all winter long. Thank you for your collaboration!
This season, ski tickets will only be on sale on the website. Therefore, unless they have a season pass, all visitors to the mountain will have to purchase a ticket online before their visit to the mountain.
