This was such a great weekend for the Fernie Griz Days. Some great weather plus some awesome powder just as the Snow To Ice(cream) Challenge got under way! Super turnout everyone! Huge thanks to our sponsors The Fernie Hotel & Happy Cow Fernie for the beer and ice-cream. Is there a better reward ?

A shout out to all the ambassadors who spent time at the Nordic Centre and the Golf Course and also to our amazing groomers throughout the community!
