Camp Fortune - March 13, 2019

Recommended Posts

Wow bonus powder day. I went up to Fortune right after work and it was snowing a little. By 4pm though it was a white out and would snow heavy for over three hours dropping 10cms. Every run was refreshed. We may be at peak snow pack.  This may have been my best night ski in a long while.  Conditions we perfect, everything was open and zero crowds. Hero snow, enough said.

Crazy snow. I remember yesterday late afternoon remarking how it was snowing quite heavily. I don't think it was in the forecast, or maybe I didn't notice. But it was unexpected.

Looks like you were the Knight Rider last night. Looks like KITT got a bit snowed on while you skied.

A great night with bonus snow. They had only forecasted for 1-2cms.  Duffy was the run to hit on the valley side.  Wish I could get out today and try the new glades off Paradise.

I'm actually sad I missed this, I heard Ottawa got 22cm! Maybe my friend exaggerated though. I got ready to go to St-Sauveur for a night ski and went across the street for a snack of tamales, by the time I finished I'd decided to just take the night off instead. I kinda regret it! I don't think they got as much as Fortune but still could have been a nice time.

      Well we didn't quite get the snowmageddon that was hyped but the skiing at Camp Fortune was great regardless. 10cms of wet snow had fallen over night and it would snow heavy all morning bringing the total to close to 25cms by midday.  The drive was not great as highway 5 was like a cart track but it was worth the trek.  With temperatures around zero the fresh snow was heavy but you can't complain.  I managed to get fresh lines for a few runs on Heggtveit and Craigsmarc before moving to Meech and getting the first run after the Ski Patrol on the La Cache glade.  After several powder filled runs on the Meech side I moved to the valley.  The valley was quiet with the trick park closed off as well as Allen's Ally for a race. Slalom and Duffy had loads of fresh snow though. Back on Skyline things were clumping up fast but my legs were pretty much done by noon anyway.  On a sad note just after lunch Fortune had to close because of power issues.  Yesterday they were closed for a few hours in the morning because of a power outage.  Hydro may be cheap in Quebec but it sure its isn't reliable. 

      Craigsmarc was a winter wonderland of fresh lines.

      Skyline at noon. Lots of space for all.
