Elk Valley residents can enjoy a day of free skiing on Sunday.

Community Appreciation Day is an annual tradition at Fernie Alpine Resort, and offers a chance for residents of Fernie, Elko, Elkford, Jaffray, Sparwood, and the Elk Valley, to get a free lift ticket for the day.

There will also be a fundraising barbecue, supporting the Fernie’s Women’s Resource Centre.

Fernie Winter Sports School will be offering a limited number of free beginner TELUS ski and snowboard lessons, so sign up ahead of time before space is gone by calling 1-250-423-4655.

To receive a free day pass on Sunday, Elk Valley residents will need to show a drivers licence or recent pay stub from a local Elk Valley business.
