On the surface, Fernie might seem like any mountain town: beautiful vistas, interesting shops, and abundant outdoor activities. But if you dig a little deeper, you will discover a rich and dramatic history.
Discover the story of the three larger-than-life king-pin Rum Runners – Emilio Picariello, Jack Wilson and Mark Rogers – who ruled the illicit liquor trade from Lethbridge to Fernie down as far as Spokane, Washington.

Tour departs at 3pm from the Fernie Museum.

Who is a Fernie Mountain Mama? She is the woman next to you in line at the grocery store. She is your next-door neighbour. She is the girl who hitchhiked west or drove north or cycled east and found her forever-home in the Kootenays.
