This will also be the status quo at the Le Relais ski center. “We will maintain the schedules we had before the break, with the closure from Friday to Sunday at 7 pm,” explains the general manager of the Lac-Beauport mountain, Mélanie Morneau.
“But we can’t wait to get back on track for the 2021-2022 season,” she projects.
8:30 p.m. at MSA and Stoneham
As for the Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham stations, they intend to take advantage of these curfew reductions to allow ticket holders to enjoy a few weeks of evening skiing. They will be able to do this until 8:30 p.m., instead of 7 p.m., as was the case until now.
“This is good news for night skiing. It allows those who finish working later to come and enjoy it anyway, ”says the spokesperson for both sites, Lisa-Marie Lacasse.
However, it will be necessary to act quickly, because this privilege will only extend until March 20. Then, only a few evenings 4 to 7 will be organized at Stoneham, a “nod” to evening ski subscribers for the end of the season.
In Chaudière-Appalaches, Mont-Orignal also plans to extend its opening until 9 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, says Micheline Cloutier, director of operations.
No restaurants or bars
The return to the orange alert level also allows the restart of the restoration services. As the season draws to a close, the comforting poutine to be enjoyed in the chalet will have to be postponed until another time.
All the stations contacted envisage the status quo of the food supply, which will not resume until next year. The “logistics” involving food were proving too complex for such a short time.
But with the warm weather coming, some of them are considering the possibility of soon implementing an outdoor barbecue formula for the rest of the winter.
A hot dog between two tracks, why not?
In addition, the new health instructions, which are due to come into force on March 8, do not make any changes to the number of visitors allowed on the mountain or in the ski lifts.
