      Quick update on conditions at Camp Fortune. Saturday was grim, cold rain all day but as the sun went down we had a switch over. The snow started around 6pm in Chelsea and 8pm in Ottawa. The result 12cms at Camp Fortune! Instant winter wonderland with the sticky stuff clinging to trees and chair lifts.  Note to self I need better ski pants. Anyway Fortune had 5 runs open in the Valley on Sunday. The conditions were good on Marshall and Clifford, hard packed groomers with some fresh on top.  Pineault had lots of park rails and jumps setup but the wind was blowing unpleasantly uphill.  Now that the cold weather is back Slalom and Skyline should be open by the weekend.  Slalom has loads of snow whales all over it.  Skyline is pretty much ready with Canadian, Sparks and Bud Clark already groomed. A couple more snowfalls and the place should be hopping for Christmas break.  Enjoy.

      Opening day at Camp Fortune was a crisp (-12c) bluebird day.  This is the 100th season! and people are pumped.  Two runs, Pineault and Allen's Ally were open and the conditions were great.  The trails are covered in perfect machine made corduroy with about 20cms of natural snow along the edges. There  are also a few rails and small jumps setup for the park kids.  I arrived a little after 9 missing first chair.  I stayed for a few hours and got a bunch of runs in before the place started to get busy.  People are very eager.  A great first day to a very early start.  Snowmaking has moved to Clifford and hopefully by next weekend both Clifford and Marshall may be open. 










      I bought some swag!
