MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL INFORMATION 2021 SEASON

We are pleased to say our cross-country mountain bike trails will open early this year, on April 23. Please note a trail membership season pass or a day pass is mandatory to access the trails. For 2021 a trail membership season pass is $75 plus tax for 13 + and $40 for children 12 and under. This year you will receive a custom membership tag which will be mailed to you. A day pass is $10 plus tax and can be purchased online and displayed on mobile or printed. *Your trail pass does not grant you access to summer chairlifts.

Anyone who uses the trails at Camp Fortune, including trail runners and hikers should purchase a trail pass to support our trail work.

 

All trail users must:

  • STAY HOME IF THEY ARE NOT FEELING WELL OR HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
    • Please note interregional travel is not recommended.
    •             Park in the valley in the designated parking lot. All other parking lots will remain closed and parking on Dunlop and Meech roads is not permitted.
    •             Have a valid trail membership or day pass.
    •             Maintain a physical distancing of 2 m with other users and our staff and follow all directional signage.
    •             Wear a mask in all service locations and all exterior public spaces when 2 m distance cannot be respected. This keeps you safe and keeps our staff safe.
    •             Have the skills to ride safely.
    •             Follow all public health directives.
    •             Absolutely no gatherings permitted on site.

We ask that all trail users follow all public health guidelines and COVID-19 regulations. We also remind you that it is NOT recommended to travel outside your region.

LIFT SERVICED DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN 2021 SEASON

Downhill mountain biking opens June 19 and runs until October 11.

Wednesday evenings may not start until July as we need to coordinate with the construction on Meech Lake road (which runs weekdays into the evening). We will update when we know more.

This year we will be using the RFID gates at the lift, as we do in the ski season. Season passes and day tickets will be sold online and issued on reloadable Express Cards. As you approach the gate your pass will scan and the gate will open if your ticket is valid.

Lift ticket purchasers: Buy your first ticket online and pick it up at the ticketing kiosk. Be sure to save your card and reload online, you will save 10% on all future visits and go direct to lift.

Season passes: Purchase online, save your card and reload next season then go direct to lift.

A season pass for lift serviced mountain biking is $250 this year, plus tax. $200 is allocated to lift service and $50 is allocated to support the trail work. All lift serviced season pass holders will receive a Camp Fortune trail membership tag and an Express Card (RFID) season pass. 

A single day or Wednesday evening lift pass will be $33 plus taxes this season. Save your Express card (or use your winter card) to reload tickets at the discounted rate of $30 plus taxes.

*Remember to bring your pass with you, there will be a $5 replacement fee if you forget your pass.
