One thing about Fernie is how easy it is to choose how social you want to be without needing to make plans. You can turn up to free gallery openings, participate in group bike rides, sign up for workshops or join a regular yoga class and be surrounded by friends and friendly faces, all ready to chat and maybe grab a coffee or a beer afterwards.

When you hear “mountain town,” arts and culture isn’t normally the first thing that comes to mind. Over the last eight years, the Wapiti team has been a beacon for another dimension to our community.
