Projects this summer include:
Chalet expansion: 2,300 sq ft newly designed rental department and increased seating space in the upper level of the Louis chalet. Improving the flow of the resort’s rental department is critical and improves the Guest’s learning experience! With more space and seating in the upper level cafeteria, the new and improved chalet will allow Guests to abide by social distancing measures more easily.
Lifts: Direct to chairlift! A new contactless experience on snow! Resort improvements included a partnership with Axess, the world’s best in gated RFID Lift technology. The new LouisXpress card system will provide easy to purchase e-lift tickets, Podium Passes, rentals, and lessons. The LouisXpress card is reloadable online, offers contactless pick-up boxes and self-checkout kiosks, reducing line-ups and creating a straight to chairlift experience for resort Guests. When customers choose MSLM they will spend more time skiing and snowboarding.
Lighting: Upgrading Musco lighting on Junkyard trail, adding new lights to Smart Alec, taking the total number of trails to 31 of 36 for night operation. Increasing operational terrain at night and enforcing MSLM’s reputation as the best night skiing option in Ontario for skiers and snowboarders!
Snow: A new Pisten Bully PB600 complete with SnowSat technology added to MSLM’s incredible grooming fleet, adding to the resort’s ability to offer the best in snow conditions for Ontario’s skiers and riders.
Public Health: Mount St Louis Moonstone is committed to the safety of its Employees and Guests. The resort recognizes its role in preventing the spread of COVID19 while in turn acknowledges the importance of sport; specifically skiing and snowboarding in supporting our Guest’s mental and physical health during the winter months and throughout this pandemic. Currently, in STAGE3, the resort is working diligently with provincial/local governments along with public health officials to ensure a safe environment for skiers and snowboarders. The resort will inform guests of any operational changes, or newly developed safety protocols for the 2020/21 season on its website, mountstlouis.com noting that any situation can and will change during this pandemic and this information will be released closer to the start of ski and snowboard season.
General Manager Robert Huter says, “Mount St. Louis Moonstone continues to be operated by a family of skiers…and we’re going through some big exciting changes but always to offer the best skiing and snowboarding in Ontario! My family is grateful that so many of you are excited to visit as our Guests this winter and we look forward to welcoming your families safely on the slopes this coming season.”
The resort’s Fall Sale for Podium Passes, and lesson programs will be announced on mountstlouis.com in mid-October.
