Probably the biggest news for skiers in the Eastern Townships this year is the new L’EST GO card which allows you to earn up to a 40% discount on the regular ticket price at the four ski stations in the region.

You can get discount tickets at https://www.cantonsdelest.com/lestgo. Discounts increase based on the number of day tickets you buy, and they are valid at the four stations.

Bromont – A new modern chalet has just opened at the summit with an incredible view over the region; a hybrid lift and an improved, more healthy, restaurant await you there.The mountain also obtained an Aliment au Québec certification on its menu and will serve many regional products, including Brome Lake duck and bagels from Roundtop Bagels in Sutton.

Orford – The main attention grabber is the enlarged main chalet at the mountain’s base. More modern, with more windows, it is sure to be a huge asset for the mountain. Two new magic carpets, covered with an ultra-resistant transparent dome, were installed for use by novice skiers. A first in Quebec.

Sutton Mountain – Skiers will appreciate the great skiing conditions coming from improvements to the snowmaking system and trail maintenance. A coffee counter and a restaurant have been added at the base of the ski trails.

Owl’s Head – In addition to completely renovating its ski chalet last year, Owl’s Head has just installed a new Doppelmayr ski lift to replace the lakeside chair that has not been operating since the end of winter 2018.

Its gourmand offering continues to improve, and its snow conditions will be excellent this year, thanks to an enhanced snowmaking system. There is still time to buy your Ninoxe 4 pass for groups of four skiers which allows you to ski Monday to Thursday, except during the school break, for $139 plus taxes.

Great new offerings that allow you to appreciate skiing in the Eastern Townships. Look for other discounts on ski tickets at the various stations, especially for those able to ski during the week from Monday to Thursday.
