Gray Rocks To Reopen?

Recommended Posts

I just found this story on the tva nouvelles web page about a possible rededevlopment plan to reopen Gray Rocks in the future. The developer has successfully purchased some of the properties at the former site of the Auberge Gray Rocks in hoping to revive the site, and to keep the memory of the once popular Laurentian ski area alive. Closed back in 2009, Gray Rocks had been in operation since its founding in 1905. In 2014 the hotel burned in a spectacular fire. Here is the link to the story of this project.

I'd love to see them reopen. I went by several times while heading to Tremblant but never visited before they closed. A small regret. Let's hope it makes a comeback.

When I first heard about this I thought it was a rumour so I was hesitant at first to post it yesterday, but now this is the third story I have read now about the the possibility of Gray Rocks reopening. This story is from the Montreal Times found tonight on the subject.

If this comes to be, this is going to take a ton of cash to do it. I never got to ski it but had visited the site in the fall of 2015 after the fire at the hotel. The building was flattened and the grounds landscaped and all of the lifts removed with the exception of the odd lift part here and there.

Here are a few shots of Gray Rocks from the fall of 2015.

This is from the hotel side where the Quad was:
