Ottawa Ski Club / Fortune Ski Club / Fortune Ski Academy
There have been many changes since the Ottawa Ski Club was first formed in 1910. The Club originally focused on jumping. The first primitive jump tower was built at ‘Suicide Hill’, Rockcliffe Park. The Club’s activities were suspended during World War I and in 1919 the OSC was reorganized and incorporated. Cross-country racing predominated for more than a decade after the Club’s reorganization. 1920 marked the acquisition of Camp Fortune. Trails were cut, lodges were built and the Ottawa Ski Club grew in numbers becoming the largest ski club in the world with a membership of over 10,000. The focus of the OSC moved towards the alpine events. – read more HERE.
