Groomer replacement project


Last season, a groomer replacement project was launched. The project is now completed and we can be proud of the results:

  • A Pisten Bully PB160 groomer was acquired
  • Attachments were also acquired: a Ginzu backup groomer, a brushcutter
  • Two bridges were replaced by culverts and two other bridges were reinforced
  • A steel storage container was acquired and shelves were added in the garage.
