Quebec Ski Resort Announces New Eight-Pack Chairlift


“My family remains dedicated to providing the finest skiing and snowboarding experience in Ontario. This advancement helps guests spend more time on the slopes and less time waiting in a lift line.”– Robert Huter, General Manager of Mount St. Louis Moonstone. 

Mount St. Louis Moonstone in Quebec will be one of the first Canadian ski resorts to have an eight-pack chairlift. Called the Adventure 8, the Doppelmayr D-Line Direct Drive 8-seater chairlift will be able to carry 4250 passengers an hour. The new high-speed chairlift, which will replace the Adventure Express, will go from the Moonbeam base lodge to the Moonbeam summit.

The most unique feature of the new chairlift will be the L-shaped base terminal. Kircher Concepts, which helped conceptualize the lift for Moonstone, said that “it allows the design capacity to reach near maximum while still allowing a 90-degree loading setup. With a standard terminal, 90-degree loading increases the minimum distance between chairs.” Other features for passengers include a loading conveyor, manual lock safety bars, footrests, and heated seats.

The lift could become the first high-speed in Canada, as they’ll be racing with Whistler Blackcomb of being the first to open an eight-pack during the 2023-24 season. Based on Whistlers’ struggles during this season in terms of getting two chairlifts open, there’s a good chance Mount St. Louis Moonstone is the first to open their eight-pack.

The new chairlift is expected to open during the 2023-24 season.
