Ahead of his visit to Fernie Alpine Resort on December 23rd and 24th, Santa has sent a special helper, “Polar” the Bear, to keep an eye on everyone at the resort.

Polar will be hanging out at the bottom of a chairlift each day from December 19-22. Each night Polar will travel back to the North Pole and report back to Santa about all the snowy adventures people are having at Fernie Alpine Resort and come back to a different chair lift each morning.

Clues to where Polar is will be posted each day. Find Polar, take a photo, and enter to win a prize!
