Sculptures on the mountain

You have probably seen them while skiing or hiking; our sculptures on the mountain transform Mont SUTTON into an open-air museum.

 

Presented below are the works of art that came to life thanks to ”Les arts à la montagne”, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to make Sutton a destination where nature and culture intertwine.

The cow, to honor the Boulanger family

Installed in 2016 on the Chalet Alt. 680 m, the cow is a tribute to the old dairy factory owned by the Boulanger family, the founders of Mont SUTTON. This sculpture was offered by the CLD de Brome-Missisquoi to outline the huge contribution of the Boulanger family regarding the touristic and economic developments of the Sutton and Brome-Missisquoi region.
