Things might have changed from the time I received this information but you should look into these tennis camps if you or your kids are interested. Charlotte is amazing and I recommend any of these programs.

 “Big changes for Fernie Tennis Coaching
We are now officially (and have been for a while) paying a rental fee on the tennis courts.  We are happy to be contributing towards the maintenance of this awesome public facility. For the most part this will not change anything about the courses, they will still be awesome.  However we are now formally booking hours with the City so they can see how much tennis has grown in our community and hopefully they will see how amazing our players are!  We are looking forward to continuing to getting more kids and adults loving the game.

The unfortunate news is we have had to cancel the Roger Rookie Tour on the 13th July (if you have already signed up you will receive a full refund from Tennis Canada soon), this is partly down to a new rental fee and partly down to the fact that we want to bring in some new and hopefully better events next year.  As always we are always trying to improve the programs.

Dumpster Art Party Tonight!


“Saturday 30th June, 4-9pm at Station Square

A live interactive painting event at Station Square!

Over the years almost 40 dumpster and recycling bins have been transformed into works of art. At this live painting weekend, artists will prep dumpsters and start painting on the evenings of Thursday and Friday, with pop-up DJs building the atmosphere. The main event is on Saturday from 4-9pm with a beer tent, DJs, kids crafts, and chance for all to join in painting the community Dumpster.

Come out to watch artist’s visions come to life and vote for your favorite – there’s a $500 people’s choice award up for grabs for the winning design.

This year the Dumpster painting will be an evening event with DJs, a beer garden and kids’ Dumpster Trail activity.

Come by between 4 and 9pm to see the dumpsters painted live and contribute to the community dumpster.

The Free Press : Outdoor Rink Year-Round


 / Jun. 27, 2018 5:40 p.m.

Dust off your hockey sticks, Fernie, the outdoor rink is soon to be back in use.

A generous donation of approximately $100,000 by a local paving company will allow the rink to be used year-round.

During the summer, the rink will be used for ball hockey, then flooded in the winter for ice hockey….read more here.

Opening Day At Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie Alpine Resort Summer Opening

Opening day doesn’t mean much to my family other than the addition of another fun play area for the kids. The kid’s aerial park is a fantastic and shaded place to play for free all summer long.

We are also contemplating signing up the kids for a couple summer camp days. I’ve heard good things about the mini griz rangers.

These are the programs available:
• kids outdoor adventure camp for 6-12 year olds
• camp out at lost boys cafe for ages 8+
• bike camps for ages 8-17
• mini griz rangers program for ages 3-5

A Discreet Good Time In Fernie

Want to have a good time downtown Fernie without spending any money? Walk into Lysh Hair Salon (if they’re open) and try out their massage chairs. Don’t change the setting and get all picky about what type of massage you want. Sit down. Push power and get your back chopped, your calves squeezed and your butt vibrated. Yes. That’s right. My son was getting his hair cut while I got my 15 minute massage/assault and I was giggling.

I’m sure the ladies at the salon would appreciate your business, as well.
