With the most recent wave of snow from the Griz, winter has officially arrived in Fernie and we thought we would share three of our favourite ways to play in the snow in Fernie.

Outdoor Skating in Fernie


Skating outdoors in the winter is a magical experience and Fernie offers two great locations to go for a skate. Head to the Fernie Court House to skate on the outdoor skating rink or to the Fernie Aquatic Centre where a new professional-quality outdoor ice rink is scheduled to open on December 21st.
