It appears we have another reason to give thanks this holiday weekend. British Columbia’s Fernie Alpine Resort will open for a preview this weekend. Although this weekend provides just a taste, don’t fret. The resort will open officially next week, starting December 5th. Over this weekend, all RCR season pass holders can ski at Fernie, including those from Nakiska and Kimberley. The Elk Chair, Great Bear Express Chair, and Haul-Back T-Bar will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, giving access to both the Lizard and Cedar Bowl. On-mountain services will include the Griz Daylodge, Kelsey’s Bar & Grill, Griz Bar and the Rental & Repair Shop.
