Fernie Fix Blogs

What an amazing couple of weeks to be in Fernie. Between the mass amounts of snow falling and the variety of gatherings and adventures to partake in, the holidays were anything but dull.

Each morning we would wake, visit skifernie.com to see the snow report, and on more than one occasion be confronted with a “Monster Snow Report” of 22+ cm overnight. Smiling faces swiftly filled the town.

The epic weekend began with the acclaimed Ice Gala. Its second year in production, organizers Chantel Souliere and Lindsay Adams definitely took it to the next level this time around. Icy blues, silver, white and sparkling gems adorned the space. DJ's set the tone, enticing a growing crowd throughout the evening. Guests gambled their "Fernie" money, bet on prizes, purchased raffle tickets, and reveled in one of Fernie's only opportunities to dress in their swankiest outfits. Gala.jpg

DSC00764.jpgJust three weeks ago we were biking. Yes, mostly on snow and ice with a few dry patches. Sometimes in mud and slush, which sure made things interesting. But biking all the same. It wasn’t until we realized that we couldn’t wash the multiple layers of mud off our bikes (as our outdoor water sources were turned off) that we decided to hang our two-wheel obsessions for the winter.
