Fernie Fun and Freinds
Fernie been real. 3 days in Wolfe and the Family at the house have been kind to us. Day one we ripped line around the mountain with mid-30 temps. After a long first day Wolfe had hidden a stash under a tree on the ride out. What was it we thought, turned out to be a bottle of jag. We polished it off in minutes and rode out. That evening Craig arrived from Calgary hot off the Airplane. Wasn't quite our (Terry, Kop, and I) 20 hour over night drive from Minneapolis. Day 2 had us show Craig the Resort runs, while Ron, Wolfe and Goodstuf when to start booter build seesion. Local ripper Ian showed up too and had the boys building a monster in the rock garden. After being radioed for booter help we broke from the trails to go help out. We arrived to the majority of work finish, but helped put the finishing touch to the big guy. At the same time Terry and Goodstuf built a mini version for the less scary run in. Later in the session Craig add a lip to a huge rock below our session and dropped some serious knowledge on it! All while some random skiers mashed ribs on a stupid large gap they really should not have been trying to deal with. That added much humor to our already epic day.
Day 3 found us on the old side hiking upper ceder bowl to get some hot pow. It's been warm out here so not alot of fresh snow, but with crew like this we're setting this place a blase with stoke and energy. Some hiking and effort put us on top some solid turns.
What a view, it's been a great time and fun is the theme.
