Known today as mountain “4” or La Crête, the Chantecler North hillside was first opened in 1970. Back then, there were 5 trails and 2 double chairlifts.
In 1988, a new modern ski lodge with capacity for 800 persons was built on the North hillside of the resort
Since December 1998, Le Chantecler has been an integral part of the Gouverneur hotel chain. Convention-goers and visitors can enjoy this beautiful and peaceful setting, as well as the local hospitality in this magnificent Lower Laurentians region.
Between 1999 and today, many major investments have been made at the Hotel Le Chantecler site, including $1.5 million in the Ski Chantecler resort. Notably, a new four-seater chairlift was installed to replace the two double chairlifts on the North hillside, major enhancements were made to the snowmaking system and a Magic Carpet was installed to help children learn how to ski.
