Camp Fortune - January 17, 2022

Welcome to the white room. Over 40cms dropped in the Ottawa/Gatineau area on Monday and Camp Fortune got a lot of it. The drive up was a white knuckle ride in my tiny car, but I made it. At one point the snow was coming down at 10cms an hour! What can I really say, the conditions were amazing. Minimal crowds and with heavy snow filling our tracks this would be one of the best days at Fortune in a long long time. This new snow makes up for a rather dry beginning to the season. Fortune even opened up the Swan Dive for a bit, a natural snow double black. I brought my big skis and ripped pow from 9am till 2pm. The snow was light and beautiful. The next couple of weeks are going to be great as we just got another 10cms today (Wednesday, Jan. 19th).  The Valley side is fully open and Skyline just needs to open Heggtveit. I'm pretty sure the Meech runs will open Friday which includes the glade run La Cache. Enjoy it while you can.

The amount of snow was really something else. The weather definitely came through and didn't let down from what was forecasted for once. The trails look amazing and impeccable.

Glad you got out. Question for you. Are you buying day passes each time you go or you have a season pass?

Do you need to show proof of vaccination each visit if you are a day pass skier and reusing the same RFID card? And where do you have to go to validate your pass? Valley side only?

Hey Shane

I have a season pass (almost anytime). You need to get validated on the valley side. I think once you are validated and have a RFID card you won't have to do it again. They put a special sticker on the card that you just flag as you enter on either side.
