Fernie On Instagram : Stay Gold Fernie

Fernie’s Coal Town has the coolest fundraiser. 100% of sales from Stay Gold Fernie pins goes toward a local organization and this winter it’s all going to Fernie Therapeutic Horse and Pony Club. In 2018 they raised money for Fernie Seniors Centre. Amazing!

Confessions Of A Lazy Person : I Love Opening Day Weekend!

Fernie Alpine Resort Opening Day 2018 - fresh snow

You know why I love opening day in Fernie? It’s not what you might expect. Or maybe you know me well enough now to know exactly why I love opening day. Opening day means the start of skiing for my husband and kids…which leaves time for me to paint! YES! It was such a beautiful opening weekend, too. My family had a wonderful time at the hill and I painted until they came home hungry and tired legged. It was a wonderful weekend. It was a particularly good weekend for painting. I also attended a paint and sip type night with Angela Morgan and a group of amazing, supportive women. It was a night of wine, food and also fundraising for Angela’s daughter who wants to build houses in El Salvador.  I painted an Angela Morgan type painting in oils, which is a first for me, in two ways. It was a steep learning curve but I embraced my novice inferiority feelings and dove in. Hooray for opening day!
