To prevent avalanche accidents and help people make good decisions in avalanche terrain, Avalanche Canada and avalanche professionals in over 30 Canadian communities share their expertise to help people keep safe in the mountains during Avalanche Awareness.

Fernie - Room for Rent

I love a good bulletin board poster (at Fernie Heritage Library). This one is advertising a room for rent at the ski hill and boasts “Great location Awesome roommates!”

It’s so great!

I just wonder, why the lightening?
