Epic snow. Big lines. Vast mountains. A historic town complete with stories & legends. Interesting characters. Passionate people. This is Fernie. Where legendary skiing and snowboarding fuses with real stories from locals, pioneers, ski bums and freeskiers in one of the most classic ski towns in North America.

This 22-minute film, also being released on USA TV Networks this fall, shows off the epic skiing and riding at Fernie Alpine Resort, Island Lake Catskiing and FWA Powder Catskiing and features prominent locals Mark Gallup, Heiko Socher, Dylan Siggers, Andrea Byrne, Ross Janzen, Blair Craig, Kevin Giffin and indie band Shred Kelly.
