Skiing & Snowboarding

In Fernie, life revolves around the vast amounts of powder that accumulate in and around this high mountain valley – everyone skis or snowboards here.
Fernie Alpine Resort is the local ski hill and it boasts big bowls and chutes for skiing and snowboarding.
The locals have an unofficial rule: when there's 20cm/8in or more of new snow overnight, the meeting moves to the mountain. With an average annual snowfall of 8.8m/29ft of snow, does anyone ever go to work?
