Celebrating snow with the kick-off to Fernie's winter season. It's too early to ski, so come watch movies, win awesome prizes and get #ferniestoked on winter!

Fernie’s approaching snow season will again be celebrated with the annual Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest and the Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST) Ski Swap! Join hundreds of skiers and boarders as they flock to the Community Centre to enjoy the year’s best ski and board films on a large format screen with professional sound!

Expect delicious food to be available, as well as multiple different beverages. There will be amazing door prizes to be won, so be sure to get your tickets as soon as you get there!

The event is the season’s sole fundraiser for the Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP). Each winter CSP members provide over 400 days of volunteer patrol services in Fernie and Elkford. These guys and girls are amazing, be sure to come out and support their effort!

Tickets include all three shows and are available at the local sports goods shops, the FAST Ski Swap, and at the door.
