The Fernie Ghostriders were special guests on national television this morning, as Canada AM was shot live on location from Fernie Alpine Resort.

Captain Josh McKissock presented Canada AM host Jeff Hutcheson with an official Ghostrider jersey and the Riders welcomed him and his crew to Fernie.

The national CTV morning show was shooting live at the ski hill from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. The resort offered a free pancake breakfast for the crowds that showed up bright and early to be a part of the live audience. From free skiing on the Mighty Moose and zip lining, to a performance from local band Shred Kelly, there was plenty of action happening on and off camera. Prizes were given away throughout the morning, including lift tickets, a day of cat skiing, and beer prize packs.
