Saint-Sauveur, November 18th 2008- The new load of snow guns has impressed everyone. During the last two nights, the snow guns have worked at full capacity offering us exceptional ski conditions. We couldn't wait for a snowstorm to offer our skiers the mountain's opening. Again Mont Saint-Sauveur will keep its status of the first ski area to open its doors in Quebec. The Hill 70 OUEST will be ready for you, skiers and snowboarders with the Atomic Express chairlift.

Staff at Mont Saint-Sauveur says that as long as the weather keeps giving perfect conditions, snowmaking will go on and give more skiable terrain hour by hour. The official launch of 2008-2009 ski season will take place on:

- Wednesday November 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

- Thursday November 20th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

- Starting November 21st regular schedule will be on with night skiing.

A total investment of more than 4.5 million dollars

Mont Saint-Sauveur is proud of its grand opening with more than 4.5 million dollars in investment such as the only new chairlift in Quebec. This quad chair equipped with a loading carpet will replace the triple chair La Nordique and will increase the loading capacity from 1 850 person/hour to 2 400. Mont Saint-Sauveur has also installed a new snowmaking system in the Hill 70 and the Nordique slope at a cost of half a million dollar in order to provide us the best ski conditions. Mont Saint-Sauveur still offers the longest ski season in Quebec with its 172 days of ski last year!
