A long-unoccupied building in Fernie collapsed recently. Gratefully nobody was hurt, and it is now moving toward orderly demolition. In my memory it was a commercial storefront. When I was a boy, it was it was a Pop Shoppe, where you excitedly took your plastic crate of empties and, after returning them, you refilled the crate with a selection of your favourites like Cream Soda and Black Cherry, flavours the thought of which today make my teeth ache in my jaw.
Nordica has gathered a group of incredible women with unique perspectives on ski culture based on their experience within the outdoor industry, ski/snowboard brands, and as lovers of the sport.
They will explore the women's experience from the shop to the mountain and how we, as a community, can create a better sense of belonging for women in skiing. This is a FREE event that comes with 2 FREE drink tickets plus chances to WIN awesome prizes from Nordica, GearHub, Le Bon Pain and Fernie Distillers.
