The City of Sherbrooke will implement is a quad lift in the coming months to replace the unique dual lift to the ski resort of Mount Bellevue, which was installed in 1981.
The current lift would not have met the new safety standards within a few years and its reliability was not ensured, says a press release.
Moreover, this lift was not enough capacity to meet demand during peak travel days, it is added.
At the last council meeting, elected officials have authorized the purchase of a new quad lift.
The contract of nearly $ 1.2 million, was awarded to the company Doppelmayr Canada after a tender. Including the implementation work, the project will require an investment of $ 1.5 million.
