Alterra Mountain Co. Adds Taiga Snowmobiles to Its Fleets

The fleets cover 15 ski mountain destinations.

Taiga Motors Corp. announced that it is now a supplier of electric snowmobiles for Alterra Mountain Co. Alterra is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and transitioning its snowmobiles to electric to achieve carbon neutrality across its North American mountain destinations.

“We know the impacts of climate change are threatening the mountain lifestyle and activities we love,” said Darcie Renn, vice president of sustainability at Alterra Mountain Co. “That’s why we’re committed to efforts to protect the mountains for generations to come. Transitioning some of our snowmobile fleet to Taiga’s electric snowmobiles was a great choice for us to expand our on-mountain EV fleet and propel us forward in our ambitious carbon reduction journey.”

“Following testing across 15 of their iconic mountain destinations, we’re proud to continue to support Alterra in their lower-carbon mission,” said Sam Bruneau, CEO and co-Founder at Taiga. “Not only are the Nomad snowmobiles contributing to reducing emissions but doing so while lowering operating costs and delivering uncompromising performance.”

This partnership marks a significant step forward in the movement toward sustainable mountain operations and underscores both Alterra and Taiga’s commitment to accelerate the transition to electric off-road vehicles to protect winter adventures for future generations.

“We’ve been using our Nomad snowmobile for three months and have put it through its paces across the mountain,” said Éric Gadoua, mountain operations director at Tremblant, an Alterra Mountain Co. destination. “While our guests have been loving their odorless and quiet ride, our operations team is equally impressed with their performance and reliability.”

Nomad is a versatile sport-utility snowmobile that is emission-free and operates quietly, ensuring that the natural beauty of the area isn’t disturbed by loud revving or exhaust fumes. Additionally, it requires no powertrain maintenance and doesn’t require gas or oil, making it a cost-effective option over time. The ideal winter workhorse, Nomad offers a range of up to 100 kilometers and boasts an impressive towing capacity of 511 kilograms (1,125 pounds).
