A new slide experience known in Europe as rodeling, a specialized Freestyle & Freeride boutique, a bridge to travel around the base more easily, a new À Tout Prix Card for enjoying the skiable terrain at a low $40 per day and a Train linking Québec City to the Mountain – Le Massif de Charlevoix’s skiers and riders are really going to be moved this season.
Rodeling: A New Slide Experience
Starting December 24*, a 7.5 km sled run specially designed for rodeling on a natural snow base is now here for couples, friends, families and groups keen on experiencing winter in a whole new way. Two options are offered for appreciating this original, authentic activity – a classic 1½-hour plan that includes the grooming machine shuttle to the rodeling departure point on Mont à Liguori, or a 2½-hour authentic plan featuring a guided snowshoe tour to the trailhead, that leads down to the Massif Express boarding area.
Base Camp: Trendy New Freeride & Freestyle Boutique
At the foot of the trails, Base Camp is the place par excellence to discuss trends and tricks, foray through the very latest Rossignol, Burton and Oakley lines and so much more. Trying or buying a snowboard, skis, boots, clothing or accessories? Its expert advisors will meet your most challenging needs.
La Passerelle: Better Access to Skiable Terrain
Travelling from one Mountain sector to another will never have been so easy thanks to the new bridge connecting the boarding areas of the Massif Express Gondola and Grande-Pointe Express Lift, and its pathway leading to the Base Chalet. This new 100-metre pedestrian, skier and rider concourse also links up with Le Transit – the pulse gondola that shuttles Train passengers to the Mountain. More lift options, and better all-round access.
Winter Rail Cruise: Riding the Rails & Riding the Trails
Starting Saturday, February 3 2012, the Train linking Québec City to La Malbaie is launching 19 round-trip winter rail cruises – 11 of which feature a special stopover at the base of the Mountain, for passengers to pair the pleasures of slide sports with those of an adventure in gastronomy. A copious breakfast is served on the morning journey, and after an exciting day out on the trails, on their return rail cruise passengers are presented with a comforting meal in a relaxed ambience.
À Tout Prix Card: Ski & Ride for $40/Day
Skiers and riders sail the trails for less this season. For an initial $79, an adult À Tout Prix Card includes your first day lift ticket at the Mountain, and then guarantees better-than-ever deals on subsequent visits – $40 Sunday to Friday, and only $50 on Saturdays. That’s 25% to 40% off per visit! Student, senior and junior rates also available.
