Spring session on the Mont Fort

Spot Check: Mont Fort

Spot Check: Mont Fort

The Mont Fort is 3328 Metres above sea level. It is the highest peak in the 4 valley's area. The steep mountain peak has awesome routes down it from all sides. The famous backside off Mont Fort can be accessed via a few different entry points and there are endless freeride and splitboarding options once off the back. Always worth taking a guide into these remote zones to get the most out of your riding adventure.

The main controlled route on the Mont Fort consists of a steep bumps field with numerous different routes around it. The chute under the lift line is steep and challenging but also an awesome run. Caution should be taken at all times when going under the ropes as the Mont Fort area is a glacier and crevasses are a problem.

The South side of Mont Fort is also worth checking out. This is accessed via riding over the top of the mountain and then popping over the ridge line. The slope will bring you down towards the Bec Des Rosses. Again always worth taking a guide into these areas so that conditions are assessed before riding.
