download (23)Everyone may not prefer the cold and chilling weather. However, few people associated with the tourism industry of Quebec are rejoicing with the profusion of snow and temperature drops help businesses for ski hills and hoteliers to improve.

 
In the last few years, winter tourism industry suffered because of dearth of snow early in the winter compelled many ski hills to miss the festive season and lose revenue as a result.
This year, it’s a different story altogether as ski hills get prepared to welcome a flood of vacationers this year.

 
“It’s exceptional,” said Hugues Fournel, director of operations at Sentiers du Moulin in Lac-Beauport. “We have trails open that are never usually open at the beginning of the season.”

 
The increase comes as a boon for ski hill operators who economically depend on the cold weather.

 
In the past 15 years, Ski Bromont has spent over $10 million related to snow-making equipment and technology and in 2016, Mount Sutton put in $500,000-worth of snow-making equipment alone.

 
The Ice Hotel in Valcartier village is also profiting from the cold weather, as managers are expecting to create a new record for early season opening.

 
“This is the first time we have hope to open earlier in the season,” said artistic director Pierre L’Heureux. “We got a head start. We managed to make all our snow and build at the end of November.”
