Wine in Little Italy

Jesse's first house was a simple house and one day over the fence her neighbour, Alfonso Elia, handed her some homegrown beans, even one time a bottle of wine. Leading to stories of wine creation and history.

Christmas Tree Hunting

Most of us live in Fernie for the access to the great outdoors, yet in the shoulder season, once mountain biking has wrapped up and before skiing starts, many of us hole up inside, waiting for the snow. One of the many blessings of living here is that it could not be easier to get your own tree.

Skiing the backcountry in Fernie is a lot of fun and takes you to some beautiful locations, but before you take that first step out off bounds off the hill or decide to go and climb to the top of a mountain to ski a line, there should be a lot of forethought and info gathering before you go.
