Lying in the shadows, the Ghostrider waits for the afternoon sun. On a summer evening, on Mt. Hosmer’s face, the Ghostrider appears – the shadow of a distinctive horse and rider, and some viewers see a second person walking behind the horse.

Fernie locals speak of a legend, it’s really a story fabricated over the years to enrich the towns history and perception.

The legend, if any, is clearly untrue and degrading as the local Ktunaxa people never practiced curses and the 1964 ceremony was enticed by money and scripted by the Fernie Mayor of the day.
