Our customers regularly comment: We feel at home here!


Founded in 1974, Mont-Orignal began operations following the acquisition of a lodge, a 2-person lift and from Enchanted Mountain, Maine [USA].

In 2012, the establishment of a new cooperative (workers and support members) was essential to preserve this tourist gem. The loss of 90 jobs would have accelerated the movement to devitalize the MRC des Etchemins and more specifically the Municipality of Lac-Etchemin.


Nowadays, we have a sixfold detachable lift, and a Poma lift. There are also 25 runs, including 11 floodlit, 45 kilometres of snowshoe trails, 15 kilometres of cross-country skiing, mountain bike trails, and more than 135 employees.


Mont-Orignal is an example of care, mobilization, rigour, consistency and above all, economic success.
