Outdoor enthusiasts can almost hit the slopes. The Fernie Alpine Resort’s season starts this weekend with other hills opening over the next few weeks.
As of Nov. 30, there is a 104 cm base at Fernie.
Panorama will be opening soon as they’re set to open the hill on Dec. 9.
Golden’s Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is supposed to open that same day.
Fairmont Hot Springs Ski Hill is scheduled to open the week after that on Dec. 16.
Kimberley doesn’t have an official opening date yet, as repairs are being completed on the main lift that was destroyed last season in an act of arson.
A tentative opening is scheduled for the third week of December.
