Camp Fortune - January 3, 2019


Recommended Posts

Pulled into Fortune Valley around 4 for my first night ski of the season.  The hill had gotten about 4cm over night and it was still lightly snowing.  The conditions in the valley were great with a soft layer over a hard base.  You could carve railroad tracks with ease.  Skyline on the other hand was a little crusty.  First there had been a NorAm Men's Slalom event during the day and Canadian/Chute were closed off. This left Sparks and Bud Clark open.  The conditions on Sparks were good but Bud had been well skied all day and was down to crusty base in spots.  Around 5ish the light snow started to turn into light freezing drizzle which stuck to your googles.  We went into the lodge in the valley to dry off and eat.  The bar has new beers on tap, gone are the marco brews and they now have Beau's and some Boréale special brews.   I tried Boréale's Northeast IPA.  After the eats we went back out and the snow/drizzle had stopped and the rest of the night was beautiful with temps around -3c.  All in all a great first night out on the slopes.IMG_20190103_171216225.jpg.0fb3f015c359514115161bdc004274c2.jpg

LOL that picture is at the entrance to Sentier Meech Trail on top of a massive snow gun mound.  Downhill from it in the trees left of Sparks is a mountain bike trail called Salamander that is fun to ski on. You come out at the final bend of Sparks.

Wow they have burritos now?! Are they any good?

Just a recommendation for post night skiing, the Chelsea Pub has THE BEST poutine ever and also a pretty delicious grilled cheese I think. 

Sounds like a fun night! I was at Saint-Sauveur for the last few hours of that night, there was also some good powder on the ground, but no rain.
