Skiing is one of Quebecers' favourite sports. And luckily for us locals, snow-covered mountains are not lacking in our province when it comes time to hit the slopes. Even more options will soon be available for snow sports enthusiasts since Mont Tremblant just announced the opening of a new summit in 2021. Get excited!

On Tuesday, March 10, the popular ski resort announced that it would open a new summit called Timber. This new section, scheduled to open in the 2021-2022 season, will include eight new trails. These will lead to the bases of Versant Soleil and the North Slope and will be added to the 102 trails already accessible on the site.

For those just getting started skiing or snowboarding, Tremblant also announced the opening of a new beginner zone at the foot of Versant Soleil. You'll be able to take advantage of it very soon since this section will open as of next winter.

Maintenance work is also planned to refurbish various infrastructures, including the ski lifts.

The new summit will cost a total of $2 million to design.

This amount will be used, among other things, to install a high-speed ski lift that can accommodate four people per cabin. A snowmaking system will also be installed on the slopes.

The new beginner area will cost $1.4 million, while maintenance work will total $5.4 million. A total of $8.8 million will, therefore, be invested in this project.

In its press release, Mont-Tremblant Resort explains that it wants to "diversify the ski area" and reaffirm its position as a leader in the industry.

While waiting for these new trails to arrive, you still have time to enjoy the slopes of Tremblant. The resort recently announced that it is extending the season until April 19, and several festive events are planned to celebrate spring.

If you're already planning next season, you can also buy season passes for 2020-2021 now.
