Support the volunteer ski patrol and enjoy watching some great movies, at the Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest next week.

To celebrate 50 years of lift serviced skiing in Fernie, the annual festival is being expanded to two nights of great entertainment at The Vogue Theatre.

“Bring on the coolest films and the biggest launch to the ski and snowboard season ever to hit the streets of Fernie,” said organiser Dan Savage. “All this year’s best ski and board films in one big showing and on opening weekend!”

Schedule:

Friday, December 9

7PM - Attack of La Nina, presented by the Gear Hub

9PM - Art of Flight, presented by Edge of the World

Saturday, December 10

7PM - All I Can, presented by the Guides Hut

9PM - Day and Age, presented by Commit

 

 

Great prizes are up for grabs, including Ski More Cards, a day of snowcat skiing at Island Lake Lodge, 2 for 1 lift tickets to Castle, food vouchers from Overwaitea and lots more from the Gear Hub, Guides Hut, Edge of the World and Commit.

 

 

Tickets are $12 per show and are available at the presenting retail sponsors and the Vogue Theatre.

 

 

The CSPS has been staging a Fernie Film Fest for several years as the sole means of raising funds from the public to assist in the delivery of volunteer services. Last winter 33 CSPS members in Fernie and Elkford provided 369 days of volunteer patrol services to the local ski hills.
