Ski Base happy to announce that LINE skis has joined the Ski Base family!

To celebrate they'll be giving away a brand new pair of Sir Francis Bacon's and they'll have pro LINE skier Dylan Siggers and rep Brett Hunter here to talk skiing and all the technology that goes into making LINE skis great!

In order to maintain social distancing, they will extend the eligibility to enter the draw for the entire day, all you have to do is show up and they will enter you in, and call you if you win!

More and more people visiting Fernie during the winter are drawn to spending time in the amazing backcountry, whether on skis/snowboards, snowshoes or a snowmobile. The current global health challenge is likely to increase further the numbers of people looking for socially-distanced recreation in the wilderness.

With winter just around the corner, we thought let's get stoked with different ski/board movies every Saturday!

This week's Odd Folks 1 & 2, check it out!

Odd Folks ‘The Movie’ is the first snowboard flick to come out of Australia since ‘There Goes’ in 2014 and showcases the snowboarding and debauchery of Joel Cantle, Troy Sturrock, Rocco Rachiele, Andy James, Timmy Laidlaw, Harry Green, Jordan Crockford and friends as they venture new places and visit classic spots in the streets and backcountry of Japan, Europe and Canada.

 

Avalanche Canada will issue its final forecast for the season on March 28, which is about a month earlier than normal. The final three-day forecast will remain in effect until March 30.

Avalanche Canada’s forecasts rely primarily on data from a network of avalanche professionals across western Canada. The early closure of backcountry operations due to the Covid-19 pandemic has cut off much of that data stream, so the warning service is no longer receiving enough information to issue accurate forecasts.

Repeats every day until Sun Mar 08 2020.
