Fernie – Canada
I am out with 5 friends powder hunting around Canada, we flew into freezing Calgary to pick up our rather large 15 seater van… Luckily it does have winter tyres and 90% screen wash…
Our first few days were at Fernie where there was plenty of snow but poor visibility and fairly regular snow and rain, which makes it hard to shoot many photos; hence the white-out photos… Jim enjoying the powder in the photo above.
After a long drive in poor conditions we arrived at our hotel to find that it was essentially a large warehouse with rooms around the outside and a hot tub and pool in the middle… For £25 a night not bad!

After a few days in Fernie we drove the 4 or so hours over to Red mountain. A fairly precarious drive over a mountain pass dodging 18 wheel trucks and varying visibility.
You don’t see many of these in UK petrol stations…
