Chilliwack to headline Fernival!

Wednesday • February 20, 2013

Springtime at British Columbia’s famed ski resort, Fernie Alpine Resort, means soft snow, sunny skies, live music, outstanding on-mountain events and value-priced ski and stay packages to soak it all in! The largest Spring ski music event in the Canadian Rockies, Fernival, returns for its 5th year on April 13th and continues on with the tradition of featuring some of the best classic Canadian Rock bands. This year is no exception!  One of the best classic rock bands, Chilliwack, will headline this year’s main-stage.
“Chilliwack are a Canadian rock band that had their heyday during the 1970s and 1980s. They are perhaps best remembered for their five biggest songs "My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)", "I Believe", "Whatcha Gonna Do", "Fly At Night" and "Lonesome Mary". The band's lineup has changed numerous times, though Bill Henderson has constantly remained a fixture, and Chilliwack continues to tour across Canada.”
Plus don’t miss the Sunday April 14th event with the return of Pond Skimming fun with the Coca-Cola Slopesoaker event! Watch & enjoy this event as individuals try their best to make it across the chilly pond. As you guessed it…Most don’t and you will see some splashing fun! Don’t miss costumes or lack there-of and all around good entertainment. The Slopesoaker featuring skiers and riders skimming over the ice-cold water while you enjoy some great cheers and spills!

Closing weekend will also see the Powder, Pedal, Paddle Relay race on course at Fernie Alpine Resort on Saturday April 13th. Teams of 1-5 people ski, board, bike, paddle and run from the slopes to the City of Fernie and back again!

Don't miss all the fun and excitement on closing weekend at Fernie Alpine Resort!
