Veuillez prendre note qu’un agrandissement au chalet principal ainsi que l’installation d’un tout nouveau parcours de tyroliennes sont présentement en cours. Des secteurs de la station sont donc une zone de construction et nous nous en excusons. Nous demandons à tous les usagers et visiteurs de garer leur voiture dans le stationnement du haut loin de la zone de construction. Les sentiers de vélo de montagne, le parc aérien et la luge sont ouverts.

Please note our lodge expansion and NEW zipline installation projects are well underway so parts of our site are currently a construction zone. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are asking all users and visitors to please park in the “upper” parking lots away from the construction zone. MTB trails, aerial park, lodge and coaster are open.
