For those of you who love skiing and snowboarding but have been waiting all year for the slopes to open, I've got some amazing news! Camp Fortune, Ottawa's beloved and most commonly visited ski hill, is opening for the Winter this weekend!
The news was announced November 21st through their Facebook page with the following information; they will be open November 24, 25 and 26 from 9 am to 4 pm. After that, once regular season is in effect, they will be open Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday: 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Camp Fortune is definitely one of Ottawa's most loved gems because of how iconic it is, how dope the hills are, and because of the amazing lift deals! On Tuesday and Saturday nights, from 4pm to 4pm, lift tickets are 2 for 1 lift tickets and ski rentals are also 2 for 1 on Saturday nights. With that being said, night time skiing doesn't start until December 27th but it will be on until March 21st!
I can only imagine how hectic Camp Fortune will be this weekend considering it's just a 15 minute drive from Ottawa, it has 24 ski and snowboard runs for beginners, intermediates, and experts and since it's still not too cold outside. That said, enjoy ski and snowboard season as much as you can since it's only here for so long!
