Anne Heggtveit

Anne Heggtveit, one of our most famous skiers and the namesake of our favourite double black diamond, Heggtveit, shared these personal photos with us as Camp Fortune is where she learned to ski.

2020 is also a special year for Anne Heggtveit and marks the 60th anniversary of her Olympic gold  medal win in Slalom at the 1960 Squaw Valley games.

Here is an expert from her bio from the Ski Museum Hall of Fame

Anne Heggtveit first stepped into a pair of skis at the age of 2 and won her first race at the age of 7 when she won the Ladies Senior Slalom and Combined events at Wakefield, Quebec on 6 January 1947.  In the same year and in 1948 and ’49, she acted as a forerunner for the Ladies’ International Downhill and Slalom events at Lake Placid, New York State.  Short one of ten people required for the Canadian National team, she was invited to join the team at the age of 9, an extraordinary experience for one so young.

In 1960, she also became the first Canadian to win a Gold Medal in Slalom at the 8th Olympic Winter Games held at Squaw Valley, California, USA. At the same time, she also won the Federation Internationale de Ski (FIS) Gold Medal for Slalom as well an FIS Gold Medal for the Alpine Combined events (a 12th place in Downhill and 12th place in Giant Slalom).  This was another milestone for women’s skiing in Canada .

Camp Fortune Academy

We want to take a moment to thank all of our ski and snowboard instructors for joining us this season, it was great to be back on snow! Congratulations to our stars and award winners who were honoured for their hard work and dedication.

Mountain Coaster

The Camp Fortune team celebrated the installation of the Mountain Pipe Coaster and tested this exciting new ride. We are now open to the public!

Veuillez prendre note qu’une rallonge au chalet principal ainsi que l’installation d’un tout nouveau parcours de tyroliennes sont présentement en cours. Des secteurs de la station sont donc une zone de construction et nous nous en excusons. Nous demandons à tous les usagers et visiteurs de garer leur voiture dans le stationnement du haut loin de la zone de construction. Merci.

Please note our lodge expansion and zipline installation projects are well underway so parts of our site are currently a construction zone. We apologize for the inconvenience, but are excited about these projects! We are asking all users and visitors to please park in the “upper” parking lots aways from the construction zone. Thank you.
