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.

Dave’s intentions are to be a champion for community. And what we find so refreshing, which is very common with these Feature Resident pieces, is that it is done without ego… as the purpose is for it to better the valley.
