Fernie Search and Rescue

Fernie Search and Rescue on a flood-related rescue on Cokato Road, November 15, 2021.

Cokato Road remains closed between the 4500 block and Morrissey due to flooding and muddy debris in more than one location.

Our home is located in Parkland Terrace, overlooking Mount Fernie, the Three Sisters and Mount Proctor. Ascent Helicopters is just down the road from us. I am also an avid trail user and sit on the Fernie Trails Alliance Board.

More and more people visiting Fernie during the winter are drawn to spending time in the amazing backcountry, whether on skis/snowboards, snowshoes or a snowmobile. The current global health challenge is likely to increase further the numbers of people looking for socially-distanced recreation in the wilderness.
