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.

      Wow what a killer weekend at Mont Tremblant! I drove up late Friday to meet some buddies from Toronto who had a hotel room a few minutes from the resort. Our expectations were not high as it was early season and there was the 24hr relay race on the south side. Tremblant brought the goods though.  They had just gotten 10cms and on Saturday they opened up "Le Edge" for the first time this season as well as the runs off the Expo Express Quad.  We had powder skiing on December 6th! along with 49 open runs on Saturday and 53 on Sunday.  The temperatures were hovering around -15c in the morning and -8c in the afternoon. Lots of snowmaking was happening.  Anyway after railing some groomers on the North Side we got in a couple powder runs going down Fuddle Duddle and Windigo then hit Le Edge for more all natural tree runs.  We stayed on the Edge side for a while before heading back to the south side for some afternoon groomer action.  Sunday was a repeat with lots of powder stashes left in the woods.  You really couldn't have asked for more and the weather was pretty much perfect for the huge relay event that involved skiing, running and walking for 24hrs.  Tremblant even had Beauvallon light all the way down for the teams skiing after dark. What a crazy event.  Well done Tremblant. 

      Going up! Its odd to see the lake unfrozen.

      Perfect groomers

      This was the only lineup of the day. Waiting for Le Edge to open. 


      So fresh, we only hit a couple logs.

      Note the 24hr relay.
