We are so lucky in Fernie and to have a wonderful outdoor playground. There are so many options to play outside during the winter season. When I think of “play” I envision fun, fresh mountain air, biking, and spending time with my dog Chloe on the trails. The new Inclusive Trail is a great one to take your pet along. It’s nice and wide and has a gentle grade.

To prevent avalanche accidents and help people make good decisions in avalanche terrain, Avalanche Canada and avalanche professionals in over 30 Canadian communities share their expertise to help people keep safe in the mountains during Avalanche Awareness.

Here in Fernie they have a full day of interactive and educational activities in the plaza and on mountain!  The day culminates with a fundraising auction up in the Griz Bar with proceeds going towards Avalanche Canada to support their public education programs.

As winter white begins to fall many communities take on a slower pace, settling into a schedule based around shorter days, colder weather, homework, and planning for the festive season. All of these things happen in Fernie but it’s far from a quiet time.
