Camp Fortune - December 23, 2018


Gordo

Recommended Posts

Did a quick mission up to Fortune to see how the hill faired from the rainfest of Friday.  Pulled into Skyline around 9:30. Skyline had just opened for the season on Saturday and the base is looking great with Chute, Canadian, Bud Clark and Sparks open.  The conditions were fast hard pack granular with little or no ice.  Fortune did a great job of recovering from the rain. In fact, the base on Canadian seems the highest I've seen it, making the run steeper than normal.  Skied over to the valley without having to skate ski at all.  The snow was even better in the valley plus the sun was hitting that side.  Temperatures were hovering around -12C and snow making was happening on the Meech runs.  The resort was pretty quiet for the start of the holidays, some lessons were going on and race practices were happening on Slalom.  Overall another great morning of skiing.  Now IMG_20181223_111357294.thumb.jpg.c27a5a9d000d85a50f57292359d8e565.jpglets get a couple nice snow storms to fill everything in.  Happy Holidays.

Wow great report. The rain sure did a number in the city but it is great to see the slopes are in top shape.

Your pic of the top of Canadian... I agree, that sure is a lot of snow for this time of year. 

Can't wait for Meech to open up. I love those long trails.

Great report! Looks like Fortune survived the rain fest. Love the pics, beautiful sunny skies, haven't seen a lot of that lately here in the Townships. We still have snow in our back yard but the further out of the city you get, the snow gets thin.
