Fernie BC

Communication of the higher spheres rules this month: spirituality, philosophy, culture and learning. It is a jovial, optimistic and abundant time beginning the day after a total lunar eclipse with all planets (except Uranus) direct in the sky. “The Big 3” (Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter) are still travelling in the late degrees of Capricorn.

Here at the lodge we have been working hard to open for the 2020/21 ski season. We have a number of extra procedures and protocols in place to allow us to operate as safely as possible. We are dedicated to skiing and snowboarding powder this season!

One thing we have heard a lot of this year is the call to action to “shop local” or “support local.” It is a concept that has always been important to local downtown cores and small businesses. But the message has been dramatically amplified (including by the Fernie Chamber) as people increasingly turned to shopping online during the pandemic over shopping at local stores – as it was perceived to be safer. 

It was hard to initially think of myself as an artist. I grew up immersing myself in so many different sports and dedicating over 10 years to becoming a teacher and qualified coach - taking 10+ different National Governing body qualifications, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sport and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. Sport continues to govern so much of my life and where I find true happiness. 

Danyal Taylor, a Fernie-based photographer, has released 12 stunning photos of Fernie and the surrounding Elk Valley into a 2021 calendar.

In his own words - “We live in a magical part of the world nestled in the East Kootenays and I wanted to celebrate the beauty of this valley we’re lucky to call home. I feel it is important to be thankful for what we do have, which is an amazing community and awe-inspiring vista.”

We’ve been fat biking in Fernie for many years. Our Fernie fat biking community has gotten bigger and more organized with each year. We went from floundering on precarious single track to riding side by side on groomed trails. Our volunteers are the heart of this community and continue to go out and groom trails for all users in the middle of the night! 

Each season has its unique advantages in Real Estate. While listing a property for sale in the winter typically sees a less crowded market with little competition, we are seeing some new trends emerge as more purchasers have taken to online property searches due to the pandemic.

The Fernie and District Arts Council is looking for artists to participate in a temporary public arts festival called Moose on the Loose. The Moose on the Loose Festival will be the presentation of basin artists’ work to the Fernie community through multiple events starting February 2021 until June 2021. FDAC is looking for artists to create a piece of temporary public art based on the “Moose on the Loose” theme. These pieces will be presented around the community both inside and outside.
