Fernie BC

Storytelling is an ancient artform we continue to use today. Everyone has a bit of storytelling in them. The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is running a contest for the 2019 Griz Days. The hope is to draw out the storytelling skills of the children and youth of the Elk Valley as they share their ideas of what the Griz does during the summer.

Legend has it, the Griz is a tall man with shoulders six feet wide.

Join Fernie Alpine Resort for an enlightening and interesting chat with Susan Purvis – author of “Go Find”.

Somewhere between hunting for gold in Latin America as a geologist and getting married to a new husband, thirty-three-year-old Susan Purvis loses her way.

Susan comes to believe that a puppy and working on ski patrol at the last great ski town in Colorado will improve her life. When she learns about avalanches that bury people without warning, she challenges herself:

Explore our incredible winter wonderland with a snowcat ride, lunch and snowshoe. Take a snowcat ride up through old growth forest to our scenic mountain lodge. Have a spectacular lunch in the Tamarack Lodge dining room and go for a snowshoe around the lake. Complete the full lodge experience with an added spa treatment. You deserve it!
