While Killington Resort gets all the press in the Northeast for going deep into May and sometimes even June, there’s one mountain that always gives them a strong challenge. Sommet Saint-Sauveur in Quebec usually makes it into late May, like they did last year, and even June, which they did back in 2019.
After opening for the season back in November, Sommet Saint-Sauveur announced that this upcoming weekend will be their last couple of days for skiing this winter. According to their snow report, the trails they had opened last weekend were Cote 70 Ouest and Nordique, so these are likely to reopen. These lifts are serviced by the L’Etoile Atomic lift, which will also be open. On Friday, the lift spin from 9 am-5 pm.
For Saturday, the lift will spin from 9 am-10 pm. On Saturday night, they’ll be hosting their annual May Madness event. Night skiing will be available from the L’Etoile Atomic Lift, which will operate from 4-10 pm. It’ll be the first time they have been open for night skiing in nearly two months.
During the event, there will be a Band and DJ in front of Pavilion 70, an outdoor BBQ, bars, and a Mexican food truck on-site. There will also be a concert with special guests Rêve and Lili-Ann De Francesco. Rêve was the winner of the 2023 Juno Awards for Dance Recording.
On Sunday, the lift will spin from 9 am-5 pm Their final day will be on Monday, May 22nd, with the lift operating from 9 am-5 pm. A DJ will be performing, and there will be a photo op on the Cote 70 Ouest trail. What a season it’s been for Les Sommets, and with another new lift on the way, next season will be even better.
