Nova Scotia’s largest ski area will debut a second base-to summit quad chair late next year in partnership with Doppelmayr Canada. The mountain currently features a 1987 quad chair and a 1960s-era Poma T-Bar. “This is a game changer,” said Leslie Wilson, Ski Wentworth President and General Manager. “It’s been a long time coming, but the timing was right now to make a major investment and take Ski Wentworth to the next level, setting the stage for potential four season development.” The fixed grip quad will rise approximately 750 feet over a nearly 4,000 foot slope length.
A little-known fact is Ski Wentworth had two quads throughout the 1990s. One of them was later sold and moved to Morin Heights, Quebec. Therefore it’s particularly fitting that the ski area will once again feature two chairlifts. “Now is the time to continue to the next phase of Ski Wentworth’s development as the region moves towards the post-pandemic era,” said the resort. “As a result of a renewed focus on promoting local tourism to Nova Scotians and Maritimers, a burgeoning tourism shoulder season mountain biking, development of new tourism products and an increasing awareness of healthy, outdoor lifestyles, Ski Wentworth is primed for the future.”
