The ski season may be coming to an end, but there is still time for one last big blowout up at Fernie Alpine Resort.

The ski season may be coming to an end, but there is still time for one last big blowout up at Fernie Alpine Resort. Strap on your skis or board and head up to the ski hill for Fernival this weekend.

Saturday afternoon will see Canadian legends Chilliwack take the stage to perform some of B.C.’s favourite home-grown rock anthems. The classic rock band had their heyday during the 70’s and 80’s and are best remembered for the five biggest songs ‘My Girl’, ‘I Believe’, ‘Whatcha Gonna Do’, ‘Fly At Night’, and ‘Lonesome Mary’.

Also taking place Saturday is the Raging Elk Powder, Pedal, Paddle Relay. The local’s favourite has been going strong since 1984 and sees individuals or teams of two to five people skiing, biking, paddling, and then running in a fun relay race.

Make sure to come back on Sunday for the last day of winter operations, plus the Coca Cola Slope Soaker. Contestants will do their best to make it across a pond located at the base of the ski hill. Prizes and points will be awarded for biggest splash, crowd reaction, and creative costumes.
