Le Massif's ambassador of five years, Jean-Luc Brassard, comments on the unveiling of the 2009-10 cultural event program: "I am extremely proud to be associated with the mountain. It has always known just how to set itself apart - from the support it provides to Québec cultural happenings, to the respect it shows for its environment. Take for instance its gastronomy, that privileges terroir products and its cultural event program that spotlights several of the region's artists, letting them shine on an exceptional platform." Last October, Groupe Le Massif's president and general manager Daniel Gauthier unveiled the new Massif de Charlevoix brand identity, which aims to preserve and highlight the Charlevoix's cultural and artistic treasures.
