Germination – Fernie Wilderness Adventures


Season 2, Episode 3. Uploaded by skichannel. In March, we made the trip up North to one of our favorite powder playgrounds — Fernie Wilderness Adventures (FWA). We were blessed with deep pow and sunny days. This trip was all about playing in the BC powder while testing out the latest Epic Planks skis and snowboards. Featuring the talents of Jon Whelan, Ian Hamilton, Danny Arnold & Brian Prentice.

A huge thanks to FWA for being amazing hosts and sharing with us the ultimate combination of great terrain, a relaxing lodge, excellent food and a group of memorable people that make you feel at home. FWA has a special place in our hearts, as it is the first catskiing operation that we tested the original Crop Duster at. Since that time the guides at FWA have been valuable testing partners and we look forward to many more visits in the future.
