This event is cancelled due to soft conditions unsuitable to support the pool. Lots of other awesome closing weekend Fernival events to enjoy along with the spring skiing conditions so come on by!
Bring your costume and your skis or snowboard and see if you can make it across the Slope Soaker pond!
If you see just one event all season at Fernie Alpine Resort, make it the Slope Soaker. Watch in nervous anticipation as brave participants launch themselves off a snow jump in hopes of skimming across a chilly pond, but mostly crashing into the water! Best viewing seats are on the deck at the Rusty Edge!
View ski & stay packages.
