RagJuice, i'll be in touch. Good luck with your trip!
Would anyone like to advocate that fernie is worth the few extra hours on a bus?
TBH i'm running out of time and money on my trip but i want to do it while i'm there if it's worth it
We're going to try get down there if the snow is good. A friend did a season there and loved it (the mountain, not the town so much) so going by that and the recommendations here we're going to push to fit it in if we can. Because we're finishing up in Calgary rather than starting there it suits to go to Fernie last without going out of our way too much.
