Spectacular early season snowfall allows Fernie Alpine Resort to open one week early and all five bowls. You know the snow is deep when the talk in the local pub starts out like this "back in the day"... "before the road came through the cornices were 30 feet..." Often it's the old-timers from the railroad sharing the tales with the Pro Ski Patrol team at Fernie Alpine Resort.
So far this season is shaping up to be one of those historic winters that the old timers tell tall tales about. We have snowbanks high in town now and Fernie Alpine Resort received 8 feet of snowfall in the month of November alone!
