Beginner Zones at the base of Mont-Giroux

NEW for 2019-2020! Enjoy the comfort of our dome-covered magic carpet that will shield you from the elements to deliver the best experience on the slopes. We’ve even added a second conveyor to optimize the movement of skiers and boarders to the Beginner Zones.
Read all the details in our press release.

The dome-covered magic carpet runs up the centre of the Beginner Zones to divide the area into two types of terrain designed for different skill levels:

Zone 1 offers a varied topography where the snow has been shaped into a series of banks and mounds that intuitively guide the beginner’s direction and speed as they descend the slope with ease.

Zone 2 is the classic beginner’s hill with an open, consistent slope for skiers and boarders to link consecutive turns and stops on their own, or explore other techniques that require more space.
