“Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment.” —Rita Mae Brown

The mountains, quite frankly, don’t follow you on Instagram. They don’t know how rad you got last week during the powder cycle, or that you have the latest, greatest gear. 

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.

Committed to safety while on and off the job, North Coal is proud to support Elk Valley Air Search and Rescue Association (EVASARA) with a $5000 donation for their plane and hanger purchase.

Event Date(s):
