I will accept reservations for the banquet until Wednesday 10 AM and you can pay at the door for the tickets on Friday. It’s also important to understand we will not accept coats and or give out checks at the banquet on Friday evening , this can be done on Saturday or Sunday.

Thank you all, and I look forward to seeing you on Friday for the awards banquet.

Hey all,

The banquet is approaching, the awards are at the engravers, looking forward to a good turnout. Please be at the pro room this weekend to ;

1 – return your / Camp Fortune’s jacket.
2 – buy your ticket for the banquet.
3 – collect your last pay.

We want to avoid having to receive jackets the night of the banquet, so we will receive jackets on the 7th of April also, by then I am hoping that I will have them all back.

Remember it’s not so much how you start , it’s how you finish .

Make your Director happy, be at the banquet. Contribute to our great traditions and awards.

All for now,

Lift Evacuation – March 10, 2018

Thank you to everyone involved in the manual evacuation for their cooperation, patience and good spirits. It was quite the experience and although we train for it, it is something we hope never actually happens.

Thank you to the members of the Canadian Ski Patrol, Camp Fortune Academy and the Mountain Operations Team. Your teamwork and professionalism was incredible.

Thank you all.

Academy News – Beware the Ides of March

Hey all,

This past week went well lots of new snow and a good job done by all that were part of our march break team, Thank you !!

The weather is turning to sunshine, so I expect a strong weekend for privates, please remember to report to the bell , SJ will be coordinating.

I will be needing people to work the Kids Up Front event on the 24th of March. Let me know if you’re able to work the 2 hr session in the morning. We will be running a station system and getting 100 kids up the lift in two hours. Looking for 15 instructors.

Tickets for the Banquet available in the pro room, Banquet is April 6th and as always I hope to see as many people as possible attending, to finish the season off and applaud our winners for the various awards.  I will be posting a list of the nominees soon.

We will be accepting instructor jacket returns as of the 23, 24 and 25th of March , clean and on a hanger. Or any weekend until the 7th of April.

For those of you who have pictures of instructors on snow and wish to share them, please send them to and we will create a slideshow for the banquet.

All for now


Historical Note:
The Ides of March is a Roman event that occurs on the 15th of March. It is on this day that Roman law dictated that all debts must be paid – could it be a coincidence that Julius Caeser was killed on this day in 44 BC?

See, we’re always teaching SOMETHING…
