Fernie on Instagram : You Are Not Alone


Tentative Opening Day For Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie Alpine Resort - Ski Fernie - Opening Day

We’re So Lucky To Have Bill Handley

Bill Handley - Fernie skiing blog

Do other ski towns have their own Bill Handley? Someone who reports on the conditions and his own personal skiing experience every day? It seems like a pretty special person to have in our town and I just wanted to give him his props for his dedication. You’re awesome, Bill.

Bill Handley Signing Off

From Bill:

Ah well, that’s it for another season – 129 days was not a bad one for me.

The blog has gone well now getting over 6000 hits a month which resulted in me doing the bi weekly column in the Frenie Free Press. The season summary report went on today if anyone is interested.

Off on a world tour before getting back for a summer of sailing in the UK. See you all next year.

His final report:
“Where do you start on a summary for a season like the one we have just had. It wasn’t just the awesome conditions, the almost record snowfall and number of powder days but the incredible variation in the conditions from day to day and when you throw in the opening of the new Polar Peak lift and all the terrain that opened up then you have one very special season…” Read the rest here.

Good luck out there, Bill! See you next winter.

Rod Takes The Week Off To Ski

With his new helmet and goggles, I send Rod out to the ski hill to snap some shots for me. This is what he came back with.

He reported this morning that he hasn’t shared a lift with anyone yet. The hill is pretty empty during the week!
