Community Appreciation Day at Fernie Alpine Resort Returns

On Sunday, January 22, 2023, Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR)  will say ‘Thank You’ to local communities by offering a day of skiing and riding to the residents of the Elk Valley – Fernie, Elko, Elkford, Grasmere, Jaffray and Sparwood  – as part of the annual Community Appreciation Day.

The Community Appreciation Day started in the 2003/4 season and has run every year (except during the pandemic). FAR has always included a fundraising component to the event, with past recpients including Fernie Family Housing Society, Fernie Alpine SKi Team, Elk Valley Hospice, Fernie Salvation Army, Fernie Women's Resource Centre, Fernie Adaptive Ski Program, and Fernie Friends for Friends. This year with the help of the community, they are excited to raise even more funds with the Fernie Food Bank as the recipient.

Lift tickets are available by donation (minimum $1). 100% of these funds will be donated to the Fernie Food Bank.

Please come prepared - Photo ID and proof of local residency (driver’s license, pay stub, utility bill, etc.) are required to receive the lift ticket. Tickets are only valid on January 22; snow checks will not be issued on complimentary tickets.

Complimentary tickets are available to Elk Valley residents only. Cranbrook and area residents are welcome to enjoy Community Appreciation Day at Kimberley Alpine Resort on January 15, 2023.
