Coming soon at Stoneham Mountain Resort!
Stoneham Mountain Resort is proud to announce a major investment for the 2017-2018 season with the installation of a new lift! The new fixed-grip quad chairlift will replace the double lift La Bordée and the T-bar Le Chinook, respectively 50 and 32-year-old equipment. This investment will increase the speed of the ascent for this area, modernize the facilities of the mountain and better serve the skiable terrain.

To follow the work progress

A major investment for the mountain
After the installation of the Panorama-Express detachable quad chair at Mont-Sainte-Anne in 2013, this is the second new chairlift to be erected by the Stoneham and Mont-Sainte-Anne teams this past few years. This multi-million dollar project is a significant investment for the mountain, which will also contribute to the economic development of the municipality and the region. More than ever, Stoneham will be a must to hit the slopes in the Québec City area.
