Fernie Alpine Resort got the lifts running for another winter season this weekend.

The lifts on the 'old side' started up at 9 a.m. Saturday, and, despite the rain, there were a few eager skiers and riders ready to load and hit the slopes, including Greg Barrow, who has been on the first chair for 12 years.

Sunday saw plenty of snow covering the resort, to make up for the wet Saturday opener.
