Fernie will welcome winter with the annual Fernie Alpine Ski Team (FAST) Ski Swap and the Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest on November 10th at the Community Centre!

Hundreds of skiers and boarders will flock to the Community Centre on Saturday, November 10th to swap gear and get stoked for the coming season with the year’s best ski and board films.

This years hot films include HOJI, FAR OUT, and ODE to MUIR! They are shown on a large format screen with professional sound! See the film previews here. Every year a People’s Choice and Best Film are chosen, last year TGR’s “Rogue Elements” won both awards.

The Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest is more that a film showing, it’s the first ski and board party of the season! Fernie Brewing and the Bridge Bistro will keep the crows fueled with their micro-beers and thin-crust pizza.

Plus there is great prizing and this year’s Film Fest is stacked. Everyone attending will receive a 2 for 1 lift ticket to Fernie Alpine Resort and Castle Mountain. Plus everyone will have a chance to win snow vacations, snowcat skiing and boarding, skis, boards and more.

The Film Fest is the season’s sole fundraiser for the Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP). Each winter CSP members provide over 400 days of volunteer patrol services in Fernie and Elkford. These guys and girls are amazing, be sure to come out and support their effort!

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $12 for kids for all three shows and are available at Gearhub Sports, the Edge of The World, the FAST Ski Swap, and ONLINE HERE. Get your tickets soon as the event sells out!

The FAST Gear Swap is the place to score good used gear and sell off last year’s stuff while supporting a great cause. The FAST ski swap support’s the ski team with admission proceeds and 20% of sales. The equipment drop is from 6 to 8pm Friday, November 9th and the sale is from 10am to 2pm on Saturday.

Without supporting sponsors the CSP fundraising event would not be possible. This years sponsors include: Gear Hub Sports, Edge of the World, Fernie Real Estate, Teck, Fernie Alpine Resort, Denham GM, the Bridge Bistro, Park Place Lodge, FWA Powder Catskiing, Great Northern Powder Guides, Whitefish Resort, Castle Mountain, Fernie Brewing Co. and Save On Foods.
