November 28th, 2017 – Fernie, BC – Fernie excited to kick off the season with first chair tradition this Saturday, December 2nd!
We are so proud of the passion for skiing and riding our community has! A great example of this incredible stoke is Greg Barrow- having snagged first chair for 17 years – now this is some feat. It has involved sleeping in his tent, with a cold weather certified sleeping bag at the base of the Elk Chair to hold this honour year after year. He is not alone as the masses have lined up to vie for this coveted seat.
A big shout out to Greg and all of you who share his passion for skiing and riding. We look forward to sharing the smiles and the tradition of skiing and riding with all of you!
