Have you heard of the Fernie Junior Rippers? You may have seen the signs around town, on the trails, with little animal silhouettes. This is a brilliant new (I think it’s new) summer mountain bike challenge for kids. There’s a map, found in the Summer Fernie Fix edition or online, of all the spots you need to get to, and once you do you pick up a Fernie Junior Ripper badge at one of the local bike shops. I love the idea. My kids have done 5 out of 7 of the checkpoints in their age range and each of them loved finding the signs, the mountain bike experiences and going to pick up their prize.
And who doesn’t love a little scavenger hunt, especially when you can do it on a bike?!
That’s amazing! Congrats, Fernie Fix on such amazing longevity and continued passion for the town of Fernie. I think it would be hard to put a magazine together for such a small town and keep it fresh and awesome but they do it!
For their 100th issue they’re asking for people to fill out a questionnaire to be considered for the special April 2015 issue. It’s like those Fernie Local profiles but with everyone. You can find a questionnaire at Freshies, Big Bang Bagels and Mugshots or online.
If you’re curious who was voted BEST OF FERNIE, well, the Fernie Fix results are in for 2014. You can also find out who or what was voted second and third best of Fernie.
I’m a little shocked “drawing happy faces with crayons” isn’t the most popular indoor activity in Fernie. It certainly is in our house.

I love BEST OF awards! Georgia Straight in Vancouver did it every year and I almost always voted (I love voting) and I always read who/what won…that’s how I found my curly hair hairdresser in the city! So get your votes in for Best Of Fernie and by doing so, you could even win a free FAR season pass for 2010/11.
