Whether you’re here for a short or a long time, one thing is for sure - you want to experience the perfect winter’s day. For obvious reasons, there are varying opinions on just what this day would entail… so we got in touch with three avid winter recreationalists, each with their own passion and they gave us a run-down of what this day would look like from their perspective.

Skiing at home at Fernie Alpine Resort is Dylan's all-time favorite thing to do. Here's to another season of powder-filled fun times with your friends and family. Thanks to Fernie Alpine Resort for always supporting ideas like this one.

Three quarters of the terrain at Fernie Alpine Resort sits beneath five looming headwalls in avalanche paths - a constant hazard if not for the daily efforts of a skilled team of technicians who keep the mountain safe.

This year, we registered our eldest in FAST. It was a tough decision - she had just started kindergarten and we were worried an additional full day on the slopes would be too much. Let me tell you, the first week was a bit of a shocker for her (and us) but as the season continued, we saw a smile on her face, a sense of pride, new friends being made and her becoming an even better little ripper… and her little sister too, as God forbid she be left behind.
