Most guests that stay with us in the winter are dyed in the wool powder hounds, and why not? But did you know that there is also plenty of snow-shoeing to be had around town? The bike trails that are normally busy in the summer are great for hiking in the winter with friends. There are well travelled trails in Ridgemont which is only a few minutes walk from our house. This morning we hiked up Whats Up Doc and Eric’s Trail with friends and dogs. A great day and fantastic conversation – now, when did you hold a conversation when downhill skiing?
I’ve added some new photos of the house to the website. The photos were taken this week
and are also feature on the House Tour page.
Fernie has been named as one of the 25 best ski towns in the world, and who are we to argue?
Disney took over Fernie last Autumn and turned the town into a Christmas wonderland with fake snow and huge Christmas decorations all of the way down Second Avenue. The trailer is out now, and the movie will be on DVD. So if you like talking dogs you can’t go wrong
I left Canada for England two weeks ago. The skies were blue, the leaves were a golden yellow, and the landscape was settling down after the hot , dry summer. In short, we were enjoying a long colourful Autumn. Flying back into Calgary on Air Canada I was shocked to see that Autumn was over and we were in the grip of an early snow! It’s amazing how the weather can change so quickly!
We are now keeping ourselves busy getting the house ready for the winter season. the garage is ready for skis and equipment, the rooms are all “autumn cleaned”, and logs are ready for the fire.
We will be continuously updating the website with new information over the next few weeks, and hopefully we will be able to let you know about new benefits to you for booking your winter stay with us.
