While out on snowshoes, learn about winter ecology in the Elk Valley. Discover the secrets of plant and animal survival. All Wild Nature Workshops are delivered by local naturalists with proceeds being returned to environmental education programming.

Cost is $40 (includes lifetime Wildsight membership) and $30 for current Wildsight members. Programs meet at Day Use Area at Mount Fernie Provincial Park. Register online.

Known for its deep powder days and great skiing, there's another fun way to explore the snow and all its winter beauty - with snowshoes! The trees covered in snow, glistening as the sun hits their surface with only the sound of your snowshoes crunching above the snow through the seemingly sleeping life of nature surrounding you. Winter brings a beautiful landscape just waiting to be discovered. Try these three snowshoe adventures for something new.

5th Annual Fernie on Fire Christmas tree Bonfire and fundraiser hosted by Fernie Fire Rescue.

This year they are teaming up with the Fernie Nordic Society to light up the January night sky! Come out for bbq, music, and beer gardens! Awesome raffle prizes to be had.

Enjoy your holiday season and head out on this family-friendly snowshoe on one of Fernie’s classic trails, or try the Mountain Shadows Loop in Sparwood.

Fernie is such an attractive location for families for a variety of reason, but above all else because of the opportunities and amenities available for this younger cohort (and also those young at heart). As the number of families continues to grow, so does the programming, facilities and events.
