Good news for anyone going to Tremblant. Hopefully the construction goes as planned.
OFFICIAL COMMENT – OCTOBER 30TH
Our team has been working tirelessly since the fire that affected the base of the TGV lift on October 12th. Although the situation is changing day by day, we are taking this opportunity to share with you the latest news.
Following the incident, we swiftly took concrete steps in making the lift fully operational as quickly as possible. The team began by developing a reconstruction plan with the manufacturer and its experts. This plan being completed, the next step, which we are currently dedicated to, is attaching said plan to a timeframe. The timing will depend on the delivery of parts and the coordination of different projects. Based on our actual progress, we are considering Friday December 19th as the date the TGV will resume operations. Please keep in mind that given the nature of the work and the contingencies associated with such a project, not overlooking the temperature, this date could change. We will keep you informed of the evolution of our operations.
Moreover, we confirm that the snow making capacity has not been affected by this incident. The size of the skiable terrain early in the season – from the opening of the resort to the reopening of the TGV lift – should be equivalent to previous seasons during this period. To provide such a ski area the snow making plan will be adapted, making the Duncan Express lift operational right from the opening of the season. In other words, you should have access to the same size of ??skiable terrain, but it will be structured differently. Of course, it depends somewhat on Mother Nature; to which we look forward to help us deliver on our snowmaking plans.
Again we thank you for your understanding. Until our next communication, let us wish for the return of cold temperatures and snowflakes in the Tremblant sky!
