AHC Development, www.ahc1893.com, 604-516-9145
Going for Gold in 2010! Recently at the Black Rock Estates development a Timber Frame Raising took place, a step the AHC Group is taking – which is a directive for the City of Fernie with the latest emission reduction plan released as of June 2009. The Riverbend Timber Frame product is an integral part of this reduction. By utilizing products from its corporate umbrella of companies, they are greatly reducing overall energy costs by creating an “envelope” with the construction of timbers and Insulated wall and roof panels. The timbers are custom-crafted to exacting standards and connected by the kind of pegged mortise and tenon joinery that has been used for centuries. The precision craftsmanship ensures fast, trouble-free assembly. In addition to the beauty of the timber-framed interiors, Riverbend’s traditional timber frame structures are integrated with Insulspan® SIPS and the PFB Advantage ICF System®.

The home AHC Developments is building at Black Rock Estates will be the first gold level “Built Green” home in the Fernie area and answers the call the City of Fernie is implementing with its latest emission reduction plan.

Bagels on the hill? Yes! Big Bang Bagels is excited to have a second location in Snow Creek Lodge at Fernie Alpine Resort. They are working hard to provide great food, a warm friendly atmosphere, and amazing prices. Now when you are skiing or riding you can pop in for a quick “avant ski” big banger and latte. And what about a little “pendant ski”, how many times are you looking for a quick lunch, but also a spectacular place to sit down and enjoy it? Big Bang Bagels has great soups and sandwiches and one of the best views of the resort. And you can enjoy a little “après ski” in front of the fireplace with a plate of nachos, homemade bagel chips and warm dip, and a pint of beer or a glass of wine. All you have to do is ski or ride along the Mighty Moose or from the bottom of the hill you can catch a ride up the Mighty Moose. Then enter through the back door beside the Snow Creek Lodge pool, come inside and up the stairs and if you don’t smell the aroma, you’ll see Big Bang located across the lobby. Open from 8am, 7 days a week. Open until 5pm Fri, Sat, and Sun.
