Bromont: With high-speed to the top

In Bromont, Canada, a new ropeway was built with a lot of passion and effort – to achieve the best mountain experience for the guests.

Almost 54 years after the first chairlift was built in Bromont, Canada, a new era of speed and comfort has come to the area. The Express du Village combination lift is a 4-seasons installation that brings skiers to the ski slopes and offers a comfortable trip to the new lodge on the mountaintop all year round. The passengers can choose between 6-seater chairs and 8-seater gondolas – so everyone has the best ride.

Challenge accepted

High speed applies not only to the short travel time for the passengers but also to the construction phase. There were not even ten months between signing the contract and opening the new combination lift – regardless of the challenging weather conditions. Winter arrived very early; it was wet, foggy and windy. The weather could change within minutes. The whole committed and hardworking crew was the key factor in completing the ropeway in time for the 2018/2019 winter season.

The guests at Bromont enjoy the new improvements in the resort: optimized slopes, the new mountaintop lodge, a new customer service center and of course the new ropeway. The skiing park in winter, the aqua park in summer and some action with mountain bikes make Bromont an attractive year-round destination just an hour’s drive from Montréal.

Benjamin Désourdy, Director of Development and Mountain Projects at Bromont says: “The new combination lift is a great addition to our resort. We are proud of the work that was accomplished with the Doppelmayr team. The results are great for our mountain, and our guests are enjoying the ride.”
