Camp Fortune - February 22, 2017


Recommended Posts

Last week we had almost 50cm of fresh snow on the ground.  Since Saturday its been a total meltdown.  We've lost over 20cm of snow pack and the worse is yet to come.  Regardless the snow base is holding out at Camp Fortune.  I went up night skiing to check on the conditions.  The snow is soft and fast but not slushy and there is no ice.  I was getting depressed at the winter meltdown but Fortune helped kill my blues.  All the light runs were open and it was a beautiful night for skiing with a temperature of about 4 C.  I'm crossing my fingers that it will get cold next week and snow!

It's surprising how the weather in the city has changed so much in a weeks time. While sometimes hard, the ski mountains always have it easier at times like this, being masters for cooking up great conditions. Happy to see this is no exception. 

If anything, there's potentially less people on the slopes so all the opportunity to do more runs in the same amount of time. It's a win-win. Great skiing and no lines!

Has anyone else done some skiing this week?

I haven't since Sunday in NH. I was thinking about it last night to go to Mont Bellevue in Sherbrooke where I live but it didn't happen. We have lost quite a bite of snow since the weekend. Apparently Whaleback is down a lot on their trail count since Sunday. All of the smaller areas are going to be in trouble with the warm up. Bellevue has snow making whereas Baie des Sable (Sandy Beach) in Lac Megantic is all natural. Next week is our school break for us. I am off work next week and I am hoping to get out a few times to see what it's going to be like. Even then it's supposed to be mild and wet a few days, but since that is long range, who knows what will appear!
