Big Bang Bagels, 502 2nd Ave 250-423-7778
Big Bang Bagels is very sad to report that, this coming winter season, there will be no Little Bang Bagels at Snow Creek Lodge. “We are grateful to have been able to serve you bagels and coffee the last three winters up at Fernie Alpine Resort,” says owner Carolyn Doyle.
“We hope to still satisfy your bagel need in our downtown location, which is still open 7am daily.”

Big Bang is now offering the Powder Pack (bagel sandwich, a cookie and a drink) for only $10 between 7am and 9am. So pick up your Powder Pack before your day of riding, and stay fueled all day long.
