60th Anniversary Celebration Weekend

60 years ago, plastic-shelled ski boots were invented, Spiderman debuted in Marvel comics, the Rolling Stones played their first live show, AND on January 10th, 1962, Fernie Snow Valley Ski Resort officially opened. Fernie Alpine Resort is excited to be celebrating 60 years of legendary experiences, powder days and après!
Join us for a weekend full of retro events, outfits, live music and dancing!
This Saturday, get your choreography skills together for our Ski Ballet competition (on lower Ballet). There will be beer gardens, a DJ at the Bear’s Den, and live music from the retro cover band Liquid Silence in the Griz Bar!
On Sunday, join us for an old-school mogul bash, beer gardens and a DJ at the Bear’s Den.
Plus, BOTH DAYS – Retro outfits are encouraged with prizes for the best retro outfits and looks.

Show off your skills in a choreographed ski/blade dance set to music. The ski ballet demonstration area will be set up on the lower part of the Ballet run leading into the Bear’s Den There are 6 categories:

  • Ski – Men
  • Ski – Women
  • Youth Ski – Men
  • Youth Ski – Women
  • Snowblade – Men
  • Snowblade – Women
This is an all-ages event, so participants’ song choices MUST be family-friendly and clean, both in the song lyrics and content (explicit songs with words beeped out or silenced will not work). Routines should be 90 seconds in length as per Olympic demonstration rules – but let’s be honest, this isn’t the Olympics. If you are still grooving after 90 seconds, we aren’t going to cut you off. Routines will be judged based on your theme/outfit choice, style, artistic display, and technical execution.
Entry is FREE, and you have a chance to win great prizes from Helly Hansen and Rossignol. Plus, you can win a limited edition 60th anniversary t-shirt!
