Fernie Curling Club holds a drop in night every Thursday for beginners to have a go and more advanced curlers to practise.

Come along at 7 p.m. with $10, and the only other thing you need to bring is a clean pair of shoes for the ice. Brooms are provided, and so are the ‘sliders’ that strap to the sole of your shoe so you can slide along the ice.

The Fernie Curling Club also has a bar on site with some of the cheapest prices in town.

This mixed group of nationalities showed up for a drop in recently, and discovered that the Canadians (and Scots) know how to make sliding and sweeping fun!
