CENTURY 21 Mountain Lifestyles Inc.
362B 2 Ave

CENTURY 21 Mountain Lifestyles is pleased to welcome Mariah Runions to their team.

The first time Mariah visited Fernie in 2003 she thought, “This is it! This is the place I’ve been looking for! I’m going to have a family here, and a white picket fence.” 19 years later, Mariah is still here with her husband raising three girls and could not be happier. Mariah spends her evenings teaching dance classes and coaching soccer, helping with homework, and walking her two pups. Mariah’s love for connection with people will make her a great asset to the CENTURY 21 Mountain Lifestyles team!

If you’re considering buying or selling in the Elk Valley, Mariah would be thrilled to assist you in the next steps of your journey!

To find out more about how Mariah can help you, please reach out to her at mariah@c21fernie.ca or give her a call at 250-430-7732.

Elk Valley Suicide Task Force

Ride dusk to dawn in the name of mental health and suicide awareness in the Elk Valley. The Summer Solstice Ride for Mental Health is back for its 3rd annual, on June 18, shining a light on creating conversation, talking openly about mental health and breaking the stigma all while building awareness and relationships in our community.

The event has evolved to be more inclusive to engage all community members to come out and enjoy being active in the outdoors, whatever that looks like to each person. This year is about choosing your own adventure!

This five-stage event offers something for all, including a social stage at Station Square with live music and an opportunity for connection and meaningful conversations. Participate in as much or as little as you like! All stages start and end at Station Square in downtown Fernie. 

Registration is by donation. Checkout evstf.ca for all event details and to register.

Fernie Brewing Co.
26 Manitou Rd

Despite a rollercoaster of a spring, it’s time for the return of Fernie Brewing Co.’s annual Trail to Ale Challenge.

FBC’s Trail to Ale is a popular and fun, mountain and beer-filled Fernie adventure. And, while a tough day on the trails awaits, the views, glory and cold beer is worth every pedal stroke or step. The Challenge consists of bagging three iconic Fernie peaks, on bike or foot in any order, within a 24hr period. Open to bikers, runners or hikers, you have to get to the top of Hyperventilation, Project 9 and Swine Flu, within the 24hr time limit – showing timestamped selfies to the FBC Tasting Room staff for a sweet sticker and complimentary beer.

Tentative launch date is June 1, but follow @FernieBrewingCo for their official 2022 launch.
