Fernie Winter Travel Guide - Page 8

Patio time at Lizard Creek Lodge Après – Fernie Style The heart and soul of Fernie is the camaraderie and goodwill of a shared experience. Steaming hot tubs melt away the day’s exertions and slopeside bars and decks build momentum over nachos and beer. Historic Downtown is just a quick shuttle from the Resort with an inviting collection of charming stores, cafes and spa retreats offering gourmet gifts and delicacies. Explore gear shops where you’ll find service and advice from the people who live the way you play. Stroll into the evening as the town turns into a social hub of eclectic dining and nightlife. Picturesque heritage buildings house busy bars serving up local Fernie Brewing Company beers and handcrafted pub food, while stages and dance floors attract a diversity of musical talents. Casual mid-week jam nights, indie films and pub trivia give way to lively weekend dance parties and events, including film festivals and Griz Days – Fernie’s popular winter festival. Naturally understated but essentially gregarious, Fernie is small-town charming and big-resort energetic. Enthusiasm simmers below the surface, ready to pick up on a catchy rhythm or theme. Locals and visitors join together to celebrate winter and all the magic and mystery captured by a moment in the mountains.
