It promises to be a banner season at Le Massif. Start with the mountain. You'll find two new glades, La Tourelle and La Combe, the latter giving experts fresher thrills - and less traffic - down to the base lodge. How about new snowmaking, to the tune of $1.5 million? It's in the Camp-Boule and Grande-Pointe Express sectors, and promises to get the season going earlier. Then there's the food. There's a new menu for gourmets on the go at Mer & Monts Restaurant. Mmmm. Three-course, market-fresh cuisine served fast and tasty, with, they promise, top quality-to-price ratios.
