Fernie Alpine Resort will be hosting Helly Hansen’s Big Mountain Battle again this month.

Going into its third year at Fernie, the battle dares you to join this team challenge for an adventure on the mountain you thought you already knew, while competing for great prizes including $2,000 in Helly Hansen gear.

Fernie’s course this year is even bigger and better with new categories; this is one Battle you won’t want to miss.

“Helly Hansen chose the biggest mountains with the most terrain, snow and vertical in North America as sites for the Big Mountain battle,” said Matt Mosteller, from Fernie Alpine Resort.

“Competitors battling Fernie Alpine Resort will have huge fun and a big challenge!”

Early Registration is open on the official Helly Hansen Big Mountain Battle website.
