Visitor Reviews of Fortress Mountain

Churchill from Canada writes:

Re open Fortress! This place used to be one of the best hills in the country! Canada needs more ski hills with old lifts, friendly locals and deep pow than high-speed quads and Euros stomping on your skis! Canadian ski culture needs more resorts like Fortress!
