What an exceptional start to the season this year at Camp Fortune. Thanks to an abundant supply of natural snow over the past couple weeks and very cold weather that allowed heavy snowmaking to occur, Camp Fortune launched its season this past Friday. Already on to Day 2, conditions are perfect, and you would be forgiven to think it was mid-February skiing because of how good it really is.
Two trails are open, Pineault and Allen's Alley, served by the Pineault Quad lift.
Snow coverage is complete and full width, with no ice, firm base, and plenty of white snow to carve up and enjoy.
A small snowpark is also set up, complete with some rails, boxes, and modules.
Camp Fortune isn't standing still, with snowmaking continuing across the mountain, you can see huge piles of snow on Clifford, Slalom, by the magic carpets, and down towards the Meech side of the mountain. No doubt we can expect even more trails in the relative future.
Overall a fantastic start in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. No doubt one of the best in many, many years. I can't wait to see what else is in store for this winter, all things so far point to one thing... EPIC!
Camp Fortune is open this weekend from 9-4pm. Be sure to check the latest trail status and opening hours on CampFortune.com
