WINTER PROGRAMS

December 28, 2020 Update
 
This message will provide some updates to you concerning Fortune Freestyle programs for this season given the recent announcements from both the Quebec and Ontario governments.
 
Fortune Freestyle is committed to offering freestyle ski programs to our members this season, subject to complying with all COVID restrictions, and minimizing COVID health risks. 
 
As reported in our message of November 24, the Quebec government announced that the region where Camp Fortune is located will remain a COVID Red Zone until January 11th.  More recently, on December 15th, the Quebec government announced that groups of up to eight and a coach can gather for outdoor sports and ski schools.  This means that although Camp Fortune is in a red zone we could offer our Freestyle programs.
On December 21st, the Ontario government announced a Province wide Shutdown that will affect Ottawa until January 23rd, 2021.
 
We had taken the decision to delay the start of our recreational programs (FUNdamentalz/Freestylerz/Adult) until the weekend of January 23/24 and this is still our current plan.
 
Given the ever changing environment we will be closely monitoring the situation and expect to be able to update members concerning our program the second week of January following any further announcements from either the Quebec or Ontario government concerning the COVID restrictions.
 
We also hope to offer camps during the weeks of the Quebec and Ontario March breaks (March 1-5, and 15-19, respectively) at Camp Fortune.
We hope that this information provides some assistance to you in planning for the upcoming ski season. If you have questions, please contact fortunefreestyle@gmail.com.
Stay healthy and safe.  We wish you all a happy Holiday Season.
The Fortune Freestyle Board

Fundamentalz / Freestylerz

 

A great place to start for all new and upcoming freestylers!

Formerly Jumps and Bumps, these youth programs develop fundamental techniques for the terrain park and moguls. Learn to jump, ski the bumps and do tricks on boxes and rails.

Expert coaches keep it fun and safe as you learn technical skills and great moves. This program is for skiers who can comfortably ski all intermediate runs (blue runs at Camp Fortune).

What we expect in 2020-2021

 

Everyone must follow Camp Fortune CoVID 19 Protocols: https://campfortune.com/en/covid-19-important-information-specific-to-ski-resorts/

No Equipment or gear allowed in lodge. 

 

Come to the hill ready to ski.

Our programs have been redesigned to reduce the need to be in the lodge. Loitering in lodge is not encouraged and will be monitored by Camp Fortune.

Programs start with a Warm Up at the times listed below. Warm up is outside, on snow with your gear at the bottom of Pineault chair (our usual spot).

There is no guarantee to ski unless you are a season pass holder.  There will be daily limits on the number of lift passes issued.

 

Fortune Freestyle will not be running programs unless Camp Fortune is in an ORANGE Zone.


Camp Fortune is currently in a RED Zone. 

 

We will open registration when Camp Fortune status is in the ORANGE Zone.
