Fortress Resort on track for 2023 Opening

Fortress Resort is reporting that they are on track to open December 2023.

Fortress opened in 1967 and closed in 2004. Since 2011 it has hosted the KPOW cat skiing operation. Its owners and investors have been making reopening promises since 2013.

“We have our approvals in place for phase one,” said Chris Chevalier, Fortress Mountain Holdings president. “Which is essentially five lifts, a new day lodge down in the Canadian parking lot and sewer, water, utilities, all the infrastructure we need.”

This year the old Fortress resort was featured in a video series called Ghost Ski Resorts. See the full production here:

We look forward to Fortress reopening, best wishes to Chris and team!
