What can we say? We LOVE Fernie, and this delightful haven was perfect for us. Our children do not want to go home... much like their parents. We look forward to our return.
Sadly this could be my last winter post….the countdown has begun…only 26 days left in the ski season! I know what you’re thinking….I am amazed as well! Where did the season go? Well I figure time flies when you’re having fun and this winter has been no exception! It’s the middle of March, our snow base is a healthy 341cms, our year to date snowfall is sitting at a whopping 837cms (27.5 feet for all you old-schoolers!) and there is more snow in the forecast. Still so many things to do before the final bullwheel turns….are you going to take some of these in?
This weekend, March 21 and 22, marks the annual Kokanee RETRO Weekend so pull out those figure flattering stretch pants, fluorescent jackets or one-piece suits…paint your face with neon zinc oxide…maybe you even have a tube of SNIK sitting in the bottom of your fanny pack…you remember…that Italian sunscreen that made you “Honey bronced (sic) and very, very desirable”. Oh good grief…I am dating myself! Well, the secret is out…I’ve been skiing for over 40 years and I have seen a huge change in the industry but my fondest memories are still the early 80s…without a doubt! 200cm skinny skis, safety straps, headbands and KWays…now THAT was fashion! Like totally gnarly dude! Tubular! Nothin’ bogus about it! Did we really talk like that? Like to the max! Wow! Gag me with a spoon! So, here’s a choice deal for you for this weekend only!
Taking place in the RCR Rail Park on March 22 is the Kinky Rail Jam with both skiers and snowboarders competing in a "jam format" – a great event for spectators of all ages. Let's see what these athletes can throw down!
How about this!? There are 2 more Fridays in March for night skiing from 4pm – 9pm…isn’t it time you joined the kids for an evening of fun under the lights on the Mighty Moose?
Check out our events page for all the upcoming fun stuff including the Raging Elk Cardboard Derby, Monster Energy Enemy Lines and of course all the fabulous activities surrounding Fernival, our final winter weekend featuring FREE live performances in the plaza by Daniel Wesley and headliners The Dudes on Saturday April 12 and the exciting and hilarious Coca-Cola Slope Soaker on Sunday April 13. Then it's, "So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye"... to winter!
