Your Liberal government will replace aging infrastructure at Sugarloaf Provincial Park, increasing the park’s capacity for alpine skiing and mountain biking activities.
Installation of the new chairlift will begin in the spring. The project will also include demolition of the existing infrastructure and slope preparation, for a total estimated project cost of $3 million.
The new chairlift will be a fixed grip quad with a loading conveyor. It will have an uphill capacity of 2,000 people per hour and a family of four will be able to ride the chair together. Mountain bikers, who previously had to ride the chair alone with their bikes, will now be able to share the ride with other bikers.
This funding is in addition to an investment of $2.6 million to purchase snow-making equipment and a new trail groomer for the park’s ski hill.
