Skiers and riders let out a big cheer this weekend with the 1st major snowfall of the season! Usually the August snowstorms only stay on the ground for a short period. But this season is different as this storm dropped snow over the weekend of August 28th and it is still on the ground on the north facing side of the peaks in and around Fernie Alpine Resort. This snow fell hard on Fernie Alpine Resort over the weekend and I know that we may have been the only resort to get this snowfall but I also know having recently visited other ski resorts in British Columbia like Whistler Blackcomb, Red Mountain, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke Mountain Resort that they are doing their snow dance as well!! Bring it on!
