Imagine staring at the stars and seeing a meteor shower in a beautiful, dark, mountain top setting! Join us for this unique and amazing Perseid Meteor Shower viewing & mountain top camping experience.

Your experience starts at 4pm at the base of the Timber Chair, check in, load your gear and then it’s up the chairlift to your camping area in the alpine to set up your camp site for the evening (hosts are available to assist).

The solutions are at our fingertips. Say no to straws. Tote a reusable water bottle around with you and fill it up from the tap.

Jesse loves her column. It leads to great things. But this morning, a week past deadline in mid-December, she realizes she has nothing to write about. No neighbourly wine-making, no backcountry exploration – nothing.

“Get offline, free your mind, go outside and disconnect to reconnect.”

Our Editor doesn't find time, she makes time. Because her soul yearns for it. The time to herself, deep into nature, far from all things busy and loud and demanding. Time to feel connected. To feel alive.

Fernie is world renowned for its easy access to the great outdoors. One only has to stand anywhere in town to look towards the mountains and imagine a variety of outdoorsy pursuits.

The hiking program at Fernie Alpine Resort is becoming more and more popular these days, with the recent addition of Nature Bob’s Interpretive Centre, guided nature hikes, and specialty hikes (focusing on fossils, wildflowers, or trees).

Our cold and snowiest month seems an unlikely time of year for hot and steamy romance. After all what is sexier than long underwear, runny noses, thick beards, chapped lips and frost bitten cheeks? February is the courting season of an unlikely resident with the devilish nickname ‘’tiger of the air’.
