Known for its deep powder days and great skiing, there's another fun way to explore the snow and all its winter beauty - with snowshoes!

Winter brings a beautiful landscape just waiting to be discovered. Try these three snowshoe adventures for something new.

Fernie is such an attractive location for families for a variety of reason, but above all else because of the opportunities and amenities available for this younger cohort (and also those young at heart). As the number of families continues to grow, so does the programming, facilities and events.
