We can't control the weather, however, if we could, we'd make it sunny every day of your vacation (with overnight 30cm of pow during the winter months). 

Rain doesn't have to spell an end to your mountain adventure, but sometimes you might want a drier indoor option.

Here's our list of activities to make the best of a rainy day in Fernie, BC.
