On Sunday, January 14, 2018  Fernie Alpine Resort will say ‘Thank You’ to local communities by offering a FREE day of skiing and riding to the residents of Fernie, Elko, Elkford, Jaffray, Sparwood and all residents living in the Elk Valley, as part of the annual Community Appreciation Day.

A fundraising BBQ will be held with all proceeds going towards the Fernie Food Bank.

Pretty standard, year after year although we have seen an increase in interest in nordic skiing and snowshoeing!

Nordic Skiing

One of the celebrated things about Fernie is its pronounced seasons, each holding a special place in our hearts.

A highlight of Fernie’s winter Griz Festival!   Strictly for fun, this competition features imaginative & hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves off a gigantic jump beside the Timber Chair.  Dummies can be made from a variety of materials and creativity is stressed!  Dummies are judged based on their construction, creativity, distance they fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land!

Building Rules and Registration details coming soon!

Fernie’s contingent of families has been on the rise in recent years, and with it has come an amazing array of programming and events specific to kids and families. This provides a great resource not just for those residing here, but those visiting.

Fernie, BC is rapidly becoming one of British Columbia’s ultimate sledding destinations. Legendary snowfall, five distinct riding zones, staging areas just minutes from your door with local amenities and attractions for every type of rider – wide open adventure awaits!

Some call it snowmobiling, but Shantelle calls it sledding. Imagine hanging onto someone’s back, ripping along at high speeds, occasionally in the dark. What on earth was the appeal and what helped change her mind about it.
