Fernie gets stoked for winter every November at the annual Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest at the Community Centre on Saturday Nov, 9th!

This year’s films include WINTERLAND, RETURN TO SEND’ER, and ROADLESS! The films are loaded with BC skiers and the snowboarders are legendary. See the film details here:

Teton Gravity Research – WINTERLAND – 7:00PM Showing

Winterland honors the mountain towns that cultivated legends and forged a path for us to follow. Join Nick McNutt, Tim Durtschi, Griffin Post, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Ian McIntosh, Sam Smoothy, Angel Collinson, John Collinson, Todd Ligare, Colter Hinchliffe, Fabian Lentsch, Christina Lustenberger, Kai Jones, Elyse Saugstad, Hadley Hammer, Jeremy Jones, Sean Jordan, Clayton Vila, Cam Riley, Cody Townsend, Robin Van Gyn, Mark Carter, and Nicky Keefer as they make their own mark on these fabled locations.

Matchstick Productions – RETURN TO SEND’ER – 8:30PM Showing

The skills, backstories and mindsets of four elite freeskiers—a renowned veteran, a stunning rookie, a mind-blowing innovator and a big mountain star carrying on his father’s legacy—are all captured in oversized personal segments based largely around each skier’s home turf.

Each skier brings a different style and outlook to the table, but they all have one thing in common: they love to send’er. The body of the movie showcases some of the most progressive big and small mountain skiing filmed to date, and setting the stage for the end of the season when all four skiers unite for the mother of all heliskiing trips.

Starring: Mark Abma, Karl Fostvedt, Sam Kuch and Logan Pehota. Also Featuring: Eric Hjorleifson, Chris Rubens, Lucas Wachs

Shot on Location: Selkirk Tangiers BC, Whistler BC, Revelstoke BC, Jackson Hole WY, Squaw Valley CA, Sun Valley ID and Whitewater Resort BC.

Teton Gravity Research – ROADLESS – 10:00PM Showing

The Teton Wilderness is one of the largest tracts of protected land in the lower 48. Join legends Bryan Iguchi, Jeremy Jones, and Travis Rice on a 10-day human powered expedition into this untamed area as they climb and ride dozens of never-before-seen lines.

Fernie Ski & Board Film Fest
The films will be shown on a large format screen with professional sound. Every year a People’s Choice and Best Film are chosen, last year MSP’s “HOJI” won both awards.

The Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest is more that a film showing, it’s the first ski and board celebration of the season! Fernie Brewing and the Bridge Bistro will keep the crowd stokes 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. 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 $15 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!

Without supporting sponsors the CSP fundraising event would not be possible. This years sponsors include: Gear Hub Sports, Edge of the World, Fernie Alpine Resort, North Coal, The Bridge Bistro, Park Place Lodge, FWA Powder Catskiing, Great Northern Powder Guides, Whitefish Resort, and Fernie Brewing Co.
