Editor's note: January 2018 - Fernie @the top of the charts for year-to-date snowfall.
Meet Blair Craig, a true mountain man, who left the big city more than 30 years ago, escaping to the slower paced mountain-rimmed community of Fernie, B.C. with its historic brick and stone clad main street and the meandering Elk River. But most importantly, for someone like Blair, Fernie's big draw is its famous powder snow.
Sitting next to Blair in a grooming cat, his fingers deftly control the forward and back movement of the levers, plowing and packing down the more than three-story high snowy bounty that falls on Fernie Alpine Resort each winter.
At Kimberley Alpine Resort, be sure to try some turns in the Black Forest, known for some of the best gladed tree skiing around. It's got long, fall-line leg burning runs. At the end of the day enjoy walking only the towns hip main-street filled with cool eats and shops.
