Camp Fortune - January 8, 2018


Recommended Posts

Powder Day = Sick Day.  My first plan was to drive up to Mont Ste-Marie for an epic day.  Take note Mont Ste-Marie advertised on their website that they didn't groom all the runs, leaving the snow free. More hills should do this! whats with all the grooming on a epic powder day.  Anyway by the time I dug out of my driveway and got out of Ottawa it was already 8:30 and I needed to be back in town by 2. So Camp Fortune it was.  Made it to Skyline by 8:45, got first chair. Though most runs had been groomed there was lots of fresh powder was on top, in fact the snow was picking up and it would snow heavy throughout the day. Free refills. First tracks were on Heggtveit which opened the day before.  Swan Dive is not yet open but with more snow in the forecast for Saturday it should be soon.  Sparks had some ungroomed fresh on the right side and Slalom seemed to have lots of fresh snow, maybe in was groomed first or last night? The lift lines were pretty much zero but picked up a little by 11. There were kids on the hill, on a school day? Ahhh not so in Quebec, it was a PD day.  Regardless it was a great snow filled day at Fortune.IMG_20180108_101558726.thumb.jpg.bc13764e9a58bbec2a021daf427fec36.jpg

Lots of fresh on Slalom just wish the lift was closer. Bring back the T-bar.
