In honor of its 80’th anniversary, Mont Orford in Canada announced on Tuesday that they will be replacing their Alfred-Desrochers double with a Dopplemayer fixed-grip quad that will increase the lift’s capacity by sixty percent. The quad will service beginner and intermediate terrain on the right side of the mountain(Mont Alfred Desrochers), and a boarding conveyer will help novices get on the lift easier than before. Unlike the prior lift that only operated on weekends, this new quad will operate seven days a week during ski season. The 4.5 million Canadian dollar investment will be one of many projects coming up in the future for the resort.
Mont Orford is located in the Mont-Orford National Park in Quebec, Canada. There are forty-four trails, seventeen glades, a gondola/chondola, a golf course, and a base village. Recently, Mont Orford has spent heavily on upgrades, including a new beginner area with an enclosed magic carpet, the addition of uphill skinning routes, snowmaking upgrades, and the replacement of their Visitors Centre/Base Lodge. With ownership planning more upgrades, the future is bright for Mont Orford.
