Mont Sutton Wins Awards (18-Jul-11)

Mont Sutton in Eastern Canada received three awards..

Mont Sutton in Eastern Canada received three awards at the Quebec Ski Area Association (ASSQ) annual convention. The awards were for environment and sustainable development, development program for new skiers / promoting loyalty within a target clientele and finally, successful manager.

Since its creation in 1960, Mont Sutton has become well known for its respect of the environment and concern for the preservation of nature. This Eastern Townships ski station was developed with a certain emphasis on the concept of glade skiing - a concept that has spread across the North America ski area in recent years, which restricted the cutting of trees on the hill.

In 2006, Mont Sutton made an inventory of its “green actions” undertaken over the years to keep the resort at the front of sustainable action. Following this, a code of conduct has been created, which is called Sutton’s Conscience Code. The objective of this is to add new actions to the code each year in order to reduce the ecological print and to make Sutton’s Conscience Code a reference and working tool about sustainable development.

Nadya Baron, Mont Sutton’s marketing director, received the “succeful manager” award.

“Since joining Mont Sutton in 2006, Nadya has worked tirelessly to ensure that the largest number of skiers will have fun on the trails. It will have been noticed that Mont Sutton offers several new services that facilitate the access to this sport, and there is no doubt that customer needs are carefully studied to provide an unforgettable experience.” said a resort statement.
