Well how ‘bout this weather we’re having?? It’s phenomenal! It’s glorious! It’s exactly what we like to see here in Fernie, BC! Blue skies, sunshine and warm temps…just what the doctor ordered! I’ve even taken the roof off of my Jeep already….twice! Fifty shades of green are donning the branches of all the trees, the hummingbirds are back and the golf course is open – and that’s only the beginning. The bike trails are in stellar condition, the hiking trails are ready for you to climb to new heights and the local lakes in the Elk Valley are currently a fisherman’s dream! The ospreys are soaring above the Elk River delighted they have first pick as the fishing season for the 2–legged fisherman doesn’t open until mid-June.
Fernie really is an all-around amazing little gem hidden away in the southern BC East Kootenays, surrounded by the magnificent Rocky Mountains….specifically Mt Fernie, Mt Proctor, Mt Hosmer and of course the Three Sisters. I’ve hiked all of these peaks except the Three Sisters and I feel like I need to do that with my two sisters Sue and Sandra…wouldn’t that be fitting? I have hiked along the back side of these three stone ladies on Mountain Lakes Trail, originally known as Heiko’s Trail which, if you haven’t hiked it, is a must and should be on your bucket list! Just remember to hike in numbers, make lots of noise and always carry bear spray….safety first, right?
Why not start to plan your summer getaway right now! Seriously! Call me! I can put together an accommodation package that will have you wanting to come back again…and again…and again! Whether it’s a romantic weekend away, a family reunion or a corporate retreat, I specialize in putting a smile on your face and a song in your heart…okay well at least I can find you the perfect place to stay. Why wouldn’t you want to be nestled in the forest at the base of Fernie Alpine Resort….only a hop, skip and a jump away from the Aerial Park and Zip Line not to mention the lift assisted mountain biking and sightseeing chairlift rides which all open on June 27.
We have condos, townhomes, rustic log cabins and executive homes…surely one of these strikes your fancy? We also have 2 executive homes located in Fernie town itself should you want to be closer to all the shopping, the restaurants and the nightlife.
I have some great summer specials and long stay specials so don’t delay, call me now!
