Massif Express – Le Massif, QC

The Massif Express opened in 2010 as an infill lift between existing terrain.
The top station has the large drive components.
Design capacity is 2,800 passengers per hour but is nowhere near that as of 2019.
Cabins from the bottom actually descend into the top terminal due to terrain.
There is a middle station approximately one quarter of the way up the mountain.
