Greg Barrow, owner of the Edge Of The World, has ridden Fernie’s first chair of the season 10 consecutive years.
In the late ninety’s Greg arrived in Fernie from North Carolina to ride Fernie’s deep pow and awesome terrain. Soon after he established his board shop. Greg was instrumental in establishing snowboarding in the US and continues to support riders and events to this day.
His passion for riding has not faded. To secure the first chair he shows up in the darkness of night and stakes his spot. When 9AM rolled around over 500 people were lined up behind Greg.
The official resort opening is this weekend. Will Greg have Saturdays first chair?
