Fernie Alpine Resort is just 2 days away from opening for the 2012/13 season and Fernie is a buzz about it. Just yesterday I was in the grocery store when I ran into a colleagues husband. He said nothing was new, except that he was waiting for the ski hill to open. No surprise there, after all that's what keeps us in Fernie. The legendary powder, friendly people, amazing nightlife, legendary powder, endless activities ... did I say legendary powder?
