Camp Fortune - February 5, 2021
Friday morning at Camp Fortune was a great way to end the week. The snow was coming down hard layering the perfectly groomed runs with 2-4cms of fresh stuff. Even a couple of centimetres has a great physiological effect on your skiing! Once again Camp Fortune has done an amazing job dealing with a very odd season plus low snowfall. All the main runs are open on all three sides of the resort. Only the glades and natural snow runs wait for a couple more snowfalls. I spent most of my time on Skyline and all the runs felt great. There was little crust under the new snow but nothing a well-tuned ski couldn't handle. Which reminds me I've been lazy this year and still need to wax! The valley side seemed to have more natural snow and Slalom seemed almost untouched. I was expecting big line ups but the place was almost empty. I've been skiing a lot of nights and from 2-4pm it's pretty quiet but then the lines form and it can get kind of insane. Of course, a 7pm close because of the ongoing COVID curfew doesn't help. Let's hope things change soon as the cases go down. All in all, it was a great morning and I totally recommend getting some fresh air on the slopes at your local ski hill. I'll be back soon.
