Holidays

The holidays, for many, are a time of joy, connection, and wonder. Ads sell a narrative of love and family coming together in a neat little package. While this may be the case for many, for those who have experienced a recent loss, this time of year can feel overwhelming, sad, and hopeless.

The Easter Bunny is coming to Fernie Alpine Resort.

Activities include an on-mountain bunny scavenger hunt, an Easter-themed arts and crafts station and photos with the Easter Bunny!

9 am – 3 pm: On-Mountain Bunny Scavenger Hunt
The Easter Bunny will come early to hide pictures on the mountain for you to find! Solve the clues to find the bunny pictures on the lower mountain. Once you find a picture, take a photo with it and upload it to our online form for your chance to win one of our special Easter Baskets full of chocolate and goodies!

December and January are festive times to celebrate our commitment to the ones we love. When we join as a community to share our time and resources, we can make the holidays wonderful for everyone. 

During the holiday season, family and friends come together to share love and good cheer. For many that means distant travel. There are a lot of things that you can do to make travel easier on yourself.

Some of us may be travelling near or far while others are staying put, opening their doors to friends and family. Whatever your plans, as the holidays unfold, everything that goes along with them tends to take precedence over our regular fitness routine.

We have all seen the perfect Christmas in the movies. A flawlessly decorated home sets the scene with a perfectly adorned tree. The expectation of the perfect Christmas can leave us feeling lesser than or not quite enough.

In November, Mr. and Mrs. Claus took the time to meet with me prior to the mad rush of the holiday season. While they admitted they were a wee nervous to leave the elves to their work back at the North Pole, they also confessed their love for our mountain town and were happy for an additional excuse to visit.
