      I rolled into Camp Fortune around 8:45am on a snowy Sunday. This was my first day of the season and probably my latest start in years.  Warm weather in November, little or no snow in December and COVID haven't helped!  I was directed to the main parking lot in the valley. Then after suiting up in the parking lot you are screened at a makeshift gate.  Have you been out of the country? Are you feeling ill? Have you been around anyone with COVID? etc...   After getting passed that it was time to ski.  Fortune only had Pineault, Marshall and one of the magic carpets open.  The lifts spun just before 9am and the first 4-5 runs were great. The manmade snow was well groomed and the natural snow was now falling harder.  Considering what Fortune has had to work with you can't complain that much.   By 10am though it was getting busy.  Unless you are family or from the same household you have to ride the chair lift as a single.  Ski team groups which are still running? were slowing things down majorly. All those teens had to have a chair to their self.  Maybe things will get better when there is more terrain open but Fortune only has three chairs in the valley. Two quads and an old triple. All three were running.  Skyline is supposed to open On Dec. 23rd with Sparks, Skyway and Bud Clark.  Well it was nice to get on skis again.  Lets pray for more snow, less COVID cases and Fortune to survive this season in one piece.

      What a difference a couple weeks and a couple big snow falls make.  Mont Ste Marie was in peak "Winter Wonderland" mode on Sunday.  Over 10cms had fallen overnight and the snow would come down heavy the rest of the day.  The 1200ft vertical mountain was 100% open including all the glades.  The drive up was a little greasy and we got stuck behind a fleet of plows up oh boy was it worth it.  The steeps were deep and the glades were fresh.  What else can I say we got soaked and our legs were burned but we stayed till last chair. Get it while its good!
