My passion for skiing started many many years ago, on the slopes of Camp Fortune, so it was only right that the new ski season for me would start here too.

The Quebec ski season finally began this past Tuesday at Sommet Saint-Sauveur, with Mont Tremblant following on Thursday. Camp Fortune launched their new season yesterday and is the third to open in the province and first to open in the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

With only two nights of snowmaking, Pineault, one of the mountain's main beginner trails is now open. Ski conditions were great for the early season. Complete coverage over the main part of the trail, with soft and forgiving snow, perfect to help get you back on the slopes and have fun. Lift lines were less than a minute and most often zero. The weather was hovering around 0'c, and had some light snow flurries. Park jibbers were happy to find several boxes, rails and jumps setup near the lower half of the trail, letting them start to practice their tricks and techniques.

As the cooler weather settles in for good in the coming weeks, snowmaking operations will commence full-swing and we will witness the number of open trails and terrain rapidly increase in time for the holidays. Until then, think snow as we work our way through this final week of fall weather and head into winter.

Coming up next weekend, Camp Fortune will be holding the Avant-Ski 2016 event on Saturday night from 6pm to 1am. Featuring lots of competition, plenty of poutine, great music and ambiance, it's definitely the first highlight on this season's event calendar. Find all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1670572026567320/

Have a great week and happy skiing. Don't forget to share your experiences and adventures with us on the SlopeEdge forums.
