Griz Days is a true Fernie-wide event, happening at locations across town and at Fernie Alpine Resort. Loads of great events for participants and spectators, join in or drop by and cheer on a team. Many events are free! 

The Griz is the central character for the weekend's event, read all about how this mountain man came to be Fernie's mascot and the symbol of winter.

Make sure to pick up your Griz Pin at locations around town for $2.50. Every pin is worth one entry into the contest to win $1000! See facebook page for details. Don't be seen without your pin or you might be thrown in the Griz Jail along with Fernie's Most Wanted!
