The “Camp” in Camp Fortune.  

1920-2020 Celebrating 100 years of Camp Fortune.

The “Camp” in Camp Fortune.

All of us at Camp Fortune are really excited for this season as we celebrate 100 years of skiing at Camp Fortune in 2020. We want to share our history with you all and will be posting throughout the year. We also invite all of you to share your memories and stories with us.

Over the years we have received a lot of questions about the name Camp Fortune so we figured this would be the perfect place to start.

Our history is intertwined with that of the Ottawa Ski Club, who celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2010. In 1920 the Ottawa Ski Club purchased Garrett Fortune’s woodsman’s camp near Fortune Lake and Fortune hill. The camp building served as the club’s first lodge and thus began the development of skiing at Camp Fortune.

That modest camp dating back to 1920 is where the name Camp Fortune comes from.

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.

Veuillez prendre note qu’un agrandissement 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. Les sentiers de vélo de montagne, le parc aérien et la luge sont ouverts.

Please note our lodge expansion and NEW zipline installation projects are well underway so parts of our site are currently a construction zone. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are asking all users and visitors to please park in the “upper” parking lots away from the construction zone. MTB trails, aerial park, lodge and coaster are open.

SEASON PASS SALE EXTENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 3RD. Our phone system is down, it is an issue with the VOIP provider. There is also a large volume on our online store, causing some delays and a digital queue. Please do not panic, we have changed the sale deadline and will offer the season pass sale prices until midnight on October 3. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for the inconvenience and bad timing of the phone outage.
