Among resolutions offered by the Quebecois of Mont Sutton are to practice sports more, to spend more time with family, to socialize, and to spend time wisely - which means spending time on the slopes skiing or snowboarding with family and friends.
Sutton has an astonishing array of weekly promotions through winter which offer discounted daily lift tickets to various groups of people. Everyone seems to have a turn.
Groups include seniors, engineers, women and construction workers.
Ski for Seniors Week is under way and runs through Jan. 23. Skiers and riders 55 and older can buy lift tickets for $29.
Engineers and Professional Technologists Week is Jan. 26-30. With proof of occupation, lift tickets are $29.
Women's Week is Feb. 2-6. Daily lifts tickets are $29.
Construction Workers Week in Winter is Feb. 9-13. Again, daily lift tickets are $29.
(It's easy to see how one can establish being a senior, a woman, and even an engineer. But how does one establish credentials as a construction worker?)
Mont Sutton has 53 runs, nine chairs including three quads and six doubles, a vertial drop of 1,500 feet, and 174 acres of terrain.
