Views Of Fernie : FAR Opens For The Summer

Fernie Apline Resort - 2015 summer opening day

Thanks, Rod, for the photos!

A suggestion for Fernie Alpine Resort suggestion box: Some way to refill a water bottle in the lineup at the lifts would be really helpful. It should be easy enough to do and the bikers would thank you for it. Whistler does it, maybe Fernie should too.

Our Morning At Loon Lake

Loon Lake BC with the family - day trip

A visit to Loon Lake for the morning was a good idea. The day use area has a great tree covered spot so I never felt like I was baking and couldn’t avoid it, which happens so often. Plus, I have my hat again so I’m a happy person. We only stayed for a few hours and then packed up for home…after a quick stop at 3&93 first, of course.

Heatwave Coming – Prepare Yourselves

Fernie BC - June 2015 Heatwave coming

I’m feeling for all the pregnant ladies out there…and everyone else because no one enjoys 40 degree weather. See you at the lake! I’ll be the one under an umbrella in the shade with a white cream all over my body sipping on ice cold lemonade.
