Bromont, montagne d’expériences (BME) has just announced an additional investment of $10.2 million to continue the development of the Versant des Épinettes. Isabelle Charest, Minister of Education, Minister responsible for the Status of Women and MNA for Brome-Missisquoi as well as Patrick Guilbault, Senior Regional Director, South Shore and Montérégie of Investissement Québec were present for the occasion.

Thanks to the Quebec government’s support, which includes a non-repayable financial contribution of $2 million and a loan of $4 million adapted to the tourism industry, the mountain will improve the experience of skiers by making major improvements, including the replacement of the chair lift, which will ensure a smooth flow of skiers on all slopes.

“The uebec government’s financial support for our project will make all the difference for our mountain,” said Charles Désourdy, President of Bromont, montagne d’expériences. “These investments will definitely contribute to enriching the experience of all skiers. With more lift capacity, we are convinced that people will ski even more and, above all, that they will be able to enjoy all the slopes.”

These new investments, made as part of the Altitude Project, now total $111 million.

  • a new high-speed detachable lift that will reduce the time it takes to get up to the top of the hill and almost double the lift capacity;

  • lighting on the Petawawa and Ottawa trails;
  • the work will be completed for the start of the 2023-24 ski season.
