ANOTHER $1.5 MILLION DOLLARS RE-INVESTED AT MOUNT ST. LOUIS MOONSTONE

Sep 7, 2018

Mount St. Louis Moonstone continues to focus on terrain and building mountains! This summer work crews removed the Venture Quad chair, moved 170,000 cubic metres of earth in just 60 days and raised Venture slope a total of 50 vertical feet.

The resort prides itself on a unique and powerful snowmaking system and MSLM dropped another $800,000 to freeze solid its slogan to GO WHERE THE SNOW IS. This includes 3,000 feet of new ductile snowmaking pipe on Venture, Easy Street and Crescent Slopes, along with 40 new Techno Alpin automated snow guns that were added to the authoritative fleet: 6 x TF10s and 34 x V3 Lances. These machines will help to cover 2 slopes in less than 36 hours with snow. The resort also purchased 4 x Wide Track Ski Doo Skandic machines for the snowmaking department’s transportation. Snowmakers need to get around!

MSLM installed SNowSat technology in 2 more of its Pisten Bully 600s so that the commanding armada of groomers now totals 6 of 7 machines operating this incredible system.

What is routine for MSLM is considered extraordinary for other resorts. Resort lift maintenance and improvements this summer saw $60,000 on a new haul rope for the Summit 6 Express, $10,000 on a new gear box for Sundance Quad loading conveyor and $20,000 on a new belt for Magic Carpet.

Protecting the sustainability and the ecological balance of the surrounding environment is a priority, that’s why MSLM spent $40,000 on more energy efficient insulation on both Summit 6 Express lift Terminals.

And finally, the safety of its employees and guests is of utmost importance to MSLM, which is the reason behind spending over $200,000 on a new 8320 high voltage gear switch and improvements to the Moonstone electrical station to enhance reliability and safety.

MSLM continues to be operated by a family of skiers who in turn are committed to offering the best skiing and snowboarding in Ontario!
