Support CSPS volunteers and save at Ski Swap

The launch to Fernie’s snow season is back and bigger than ever.

The launch to Fernie’s snow season is back and bigger than ever. Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST) is partnering up with the Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest to support FAST and the Canadian Ski Patrol System (CSPS).

The Fernie Community Centre will open its doors at 10 a.m. on Saturday to kick off FAST’s annual Ski Swap. Ski and board season is almost here, and the sale offers the opportunity for FAST athletes, and members of the public, to sell old equipment and buy gently used gear.

Following the swap, the film festival will take over to entertain guests into the evening.

With the first movie showing at 6:30 p.m., the event has three action packed flicks lined up; Greg Stump’s Legend of Aaahh’s, The Dream Factory, and Jeremy Jones Further. Fernie Brewing Company will be on hand, providing a selection of their latest beer. Fresh, pizza, popcorn, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

Tickets for the festival can be purchased at The Guides Hut, the Ski Swap, or at the door, and are $20 for adults and $10 for kids. All the proceeds will go towards CSPS to help out the volunteers that keep the ski hill safe.

Entry to the ski swap is $2 per person, or $5 per family, with 
20 per cent of all sales going to FAST’s young athletes.
