12-6PM: Party in the Plaza! Local Punk Legends, The Runs and a Rockin’ Roll Salute with BC/DC will keep the crowd cheering.
SUNDAY APRIL 14 – Sunday Funday!
1PM: Coca Cola Slope Soaker event! Set your up prime seat patio view early at the Rusty Edge or strap on your skis or snowboard and see if you can make it across our Slope Soaker pond. If you see just one event all season at Fernie Alpine Resort, make it the Slope Soaker. Watch in nervous anticipation as brave participants launch themselves off a snow jump in hopes of skimming across a chilly pond, but mostly crashing into the water!
3PM: the Fernival Headliner band is FIVE ALARM FUNK. They will bring high-energy awesomeness to close out the season!
And closing weekend is followed by a much quieter Easter weekend. Post winter season Fernie slows down and the town transforms into a spring paradise. The lower valley trails are open and the river is pristine—people are outside enjoying the escape from winter.
Whatever your choice of adventure we have an experience for your spring celebrations. We exceed expectations naturally at the Fernie RV Resort!
