Stairsmasters and its video formula also return, featuring some of the best urban boarders the world has to offer… Videos chosen for the last edition were viewed almost 150,000 times all around the world!Big Air now open to women!For the very first time in the discipline’s history, the Big Air World Cup will be open to women at Snowboard Jamboree. Last year, with FIS approval, the organizing committee asked women boarders to strut their stuff during a demonstration period, but the Sochi Olympic Games and bad weather meant they were unable to. FIS is keen to try again in 2015, this time for an official World Cup, with a first stop in Istanbul on December 20, 2014. All of which means that boarders of both sexes will be wowing the crowds at Îlot Fleurie on February 20.At a glanceFriday, February 20FIS Big Air World Cup presented by Vidéotron Mobile (Îlot Fleurie, Québec City)Saturday, February 21FIS Slopestyle World Cup (Stoneham)Sunday, February 22FIS Half-Pipe World Cup presented by Mazda (Stoneham)The sport at its finestBoarders will take Îlot Fleurie in Québec City and Stoneham Mountain Resort by storm for the FIS Big Air World Cup presented by Vidéotron Mobile, the FIS Slopestyle World Cup, and the FIS Half-Pipe World Cup presented by Mazda.

    Snowboard Jamboree ready for its 2015 edition, February 19 to 22
  • The Quebec City and Charlevoix tourist regions have risen to the top of the list of ski destinations by joining forces with numerous hotels to offer the brand new St. Lawrence Summits multi-peak ticket. This enterprising concept provides an attractive ski option by combining the strengths of two major players in the field of snow sports, the Massif de Charlevoix and the Mont-Sainte-Anne – Stoneham tandem. The offer is simple! Starting this winter, the multi-peak ticket will enable skiers from Quebec, Ontario, the Northeastern United States and anywhere else in the world to switch from one resort to another as they please. With a single ticket, purchased through a participating hotel in the Quebec City, Stoneham or Charlevoix region, skiers are free to wait until the morning itself to decide whether they’ll spend the day at the Massif de Charlevoix, Mont-Sainte-Anne or Stoneham Mountain Resort. The St. Lawrence Summits solution will appeal to both winter sports enthusiasts who hit the slopes every winter, adventurers fuelled by new discoveries and worldly customers looking for comfort, quality and the best snow conditions. A STRATEGIC ALLIANCE! “It isn’t just the union of two fabulous tourist areas that together form a ski destination that is unique in North America and located close to a UNESCO world heritage city, it’s also a commercial networking between competing businesses, both ski resorts and hotels, who have teamed up for this stimulating economic project,” points out Office du tourisme de Québec director Mr. André Roy. “This new product will allow us to better position ourselves in a context where North American competition in the skiing sector is fierce. We can now offer a truly world-class multi-activity winter destination, where skiing is the flagship product,” adds Mr. Daniel Guay, owner of Hébergement Charlevoix and member of the Tourisme Charlevoix board of directors. In the ski resort owners’ view, the idea of joining forces is truly inspirational. “Our primary objective is to give skiers more flexibility to help boost tourist traffic in our regions. We’re convinced that all partners will benefit from the project,” asserts Mr. Daniel Rochon, General Manager and Vice President of both Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham Mountain Resort. “The team at Massif de Charlevoix is delighted with this association, which bears witness to the willingness of the partners to work together to provide a comprehensive and unique ski destination while helping to promote both the Charlevoix and Quebec City regions. Our resorts offer visitors exceptional ski conditions and breathtaking landscapes, making St. Lawrence Summits a true must,” says Mr. Frederic Sujobert, Mountain General Manager at Massif de Charlevoix. PROFITABLE OPTIONS The St. Lawrence Summits offer is expected to provide an average discount of 30%, both on accommodation and lift tickets. Skiers using the multi-peak ticket will be able to take advantage of five different options all season long. For example: • December: 50% off the 2nd night of accommodation and 2nd day on the mountain. • January: free 3rd night of accommodation and free 3rd day on the mountain. • February: a surprise package added to the January special offer. • March: children aged 17 and under ski for free (except during Spring Break) No effort has been spared to enhance the overall experience. Skiers using this new purchasing option will benefit from quick and easy access to the slopes thanks to web-based technology enabling them to avoid ticket office line-ups at all three resorts. Skiers simply head to the ticket window bearing the St. Lawrence Summits logo on the morning itself to pick up their lift ticket and will therefore by able to arrive more quickly on the slopes. “With St. Lawrence Summits, to be competitive, we needed to embrace the global trend based on the idea of a multi-activity experience sought by the clientele. It is founded on the advanced technological approach that comes with our offer,” asserts Mr. Benoît Renaud, president of Oasis Communication Marketing, an agency specializing in tourism, skiing and strategic alliances currently in charge of developing the St. Lawrence Summits strategy. It should also be noted that the SKI BUS will provide a morning and evening shuttle service seven days a week between hotels in Quebec and Sainte-Foy and the Massif de Charlevoix and Mont-Sainte-Anne, from 20 December 2014 to 29 March 2015. ABOUT ST. LAWRENCE SUMMITS The St. Lawrence Summits initiative naturally brings together major partners from the Charlevoix and Quebec City regions seeking a development model based on the multifaceted experience. A joint initial investment of around $600,000 will go towards carrying out a major promotional campaign and promoting the product through the advertising leverage of partners such as the Office de tourisme de Québec, Tourisme Charlevoix, affiliated Quebec ATRs and Tourisme Québec. The campaign conducted by Oasis Communication Marketing will feature numerous advertisements in Quebec, Ontario and the United States and will be promoted during the Toronto Snow Show 2014 taking place from October 16 to 19, as well as at the Boston and Ottawa shows, providing unique opportunities to showcase Quebec.

    St. Lawrence Summits powerful economic alliances for a unique ski offering in the Province!
  • Laval University`s Montmorency Forest doesn’t do things like everyone else! This year, skiing begins on October 31. Our technical team prepared more than 6,000 cubic feet of artificial snow and stored it under tons of wood chips throughout the summer. Our artificial snow reserve, under production since February 2014, has been monitored and cared for daily by our maintenance team. Result: we will be able to cover a minimum 2-kilometre ski run starting October 31! To maximize the quality of the snow and permit skiing until the arrival of natural snow, snow cannons will also contribute. Exclusive to Northeastern North America!Every year, numerous skiers from American and Canadian university programs and ski clubs of all calibre capitalize on the Montmorency Forest’s facilities to prepare for their season. Notably, the Russian National Team trained at the Forest in 2012 for the Quebec Sprint competition.

  • Winter is getting closer as is the next ski season! Skiers and riders have less than two months to wait until their first turns, getting their equipment out of the closet and enjoying the early season deals to get their season passes. At Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham Mountain Resort, for several weeks already, teams are hard at work to provide improvements for the upcoming season. This season, all departments will be touched by a storm of new features; new trail, new websites, investments in snowmaking and maintenance and more are on their way! Pump yourself up for the upcoming winter: check out our new video SHARE OUR MOUNTAIN LIFESTYLE. NEW TRAIL : Mont-Sainte-Anne’s Expert Zone expands! Last season, Mont-Sainte-Anne scored the biggest investment of the Ski Industry in Eastern Canada with the addition of a new detachable quad lift running the Expert Zone and giving access to other areas of the mountain. Good news: this year, the mountain will open a new trail in the area; next to the signature trail La "S". This new track will be wild and steep on a constant vertical drop. The public is also invited to submit their ideas to name it at communications@mont-sainte-anne.com.Annual investment on maintenance and snowmakingThis winter again, new snowmaking and maintenance equipment improvements are on the menu at both resorts. This has been a priority for both mountains in recent years. The newest groomer at Mont-Sainte-Anne is the Bison BR 350 Prinoth, which offers more reliability, power and comfort, in addition to fuel economy. Not to mention the groomer with latest technology that has been acquired last winter, which increased the yield of grooming by over 40%. At Stoneham, extensive excavation work has been done to accelerate the snow cover in winter and the opening of certain specific sectors of the mountain that are really popular and coveted [bubble quad area and Expert Zone “40s”].Brand new websites for both mountains Mont-Sainte-Anne launched its 4-seasons new responsive website last April and Stoneham followed shortly with the launch of its new platform this fall. For several months, our teams have been working passionately to design, create and deliver the two new sites, with the objective of optimizing the navigation on smartphones, tablets and traditional computers. Fully home-made by active skiers and snowboarders, here are some sections that we are sure will make you love it: • WEBCAMS: The statistics speak for themselves... the Webcams page is the most popular! NEW: full-screen images of all cameras.  • SNOW CONDITIONS: In the morning, only a quick glance at the daily newsletter is necessary to get the record straight.
