The uphill skier's pledge

Before heading out on the trails, I pledge to honour these 10 Golden Rules!

You must leave the ski station by 10:00 P.M.

Groomers operate every night from 9 P.M. and require the use of a winch, which poses a danger to skiers/snowboarders who come into contact with the steel cables. The cables are difficult to see and are used EVERYWHERE across the mountain and can be up to 1000 meters long.

Last ascent at 9:00 p.m., you must leave the resort at 10:00 p.m.

Safety rules and regulations

  • You must respect the Mont-Orford schedule and pre-determined ascent and descent zones at all times.
  • You must leave the ski station by 10:00 PM.
  • Always check and respect the opening status of the uphill skiing slopes and trails, before departing on a hike.
  • Pre-season or post-season climbs are forbidden due to the potential hazards of snowmaking, grooming and maintenance operations.
  • It is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN to descend on ascent trails as well as closed or non-designated trails at all times.
  • If you encounter a snow vehicle (snow plough, snowmobile) please wait by the edge of the trail for it to pass.
  • If you are on the trails outside operating hours, please only take the designated descent trail. Access to black slopes and snow parks is prohibited.

Mountain Code of Conduct

  • Daily ticket or season pass holders must respect the Mountain Code of Conduct. Code adopted under the Respecting Safety in Sports Act and applies to everyone practicing snow sports.
