Bromont, montagne d’expériences is proud to be the first — and to date the only — ski resort with the Aliments du Québec au menu seal of approval. The company recently qualified for the program because its menus comprise at least 60% Québec food products. And not only are the products Québécois, but a significant proportion comes from the Eastern Townships region.
All of the mountain’s food outlets meet the Aliments du Québec au menu criteria. So no matter where they stop to eat, customers will have access to quality local products. At La Débarque and Le Refuge, the French fries, poutine cheese, hamburgers and hotdogs are among a long list of Québec products featured.
The all-new Chalet du Sommet will be the program’s main showcase, however. Extra effort has been made to develop its menus. For example, guests can enjoy a trout gravlax bagel (Round Top Bagels, Sutton/Ferme piscicole des Bobines, East Hereford), or a dried duck spread (Brome Lake Ducks, Lac Brome). The list of wines and spirits also stands out for offering only Québec products. During the cocktail hour or après-ski, skiers will enjoy products offered by Le Mas des Patriotes, Ungava Spirits, Distillerie de la Chaufferie, Cidrerie Michel Jodoin, and many others!
When he joined the team two years ago, ski resort chef Jérôme Bossu set himself the goal of developing menus using local products. He says he is proud of his achievements. “Local producers have so many beautiful products to offer, so it’s easy to be inspired when you have access to such good quality,” Mr. Bossu says.
While Bromont, montage d’expériences, wants to position itself as an essential tourist destination, this new food offering is also enabling it to become an agri-tourism destination.
Bromont, montage d’expériences believes that this new recognition will be very well received by its customers. With the hybrid chairlift inaugurated last winter, the brand-new Chalet du Sommet opening this year, and a local food offering, the resort is vastly increasing its attractions to enhance its customers’ experience.
