Every once and a while we get to spend time with SuperHeroes, you know those people who leave you standing taller and eyes more wide open.  Fernie, British Columbia has a superhero and his name is Griz.  Fernie, named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of North America’s top party towns, hosts a festival every year in honour of their superhero.  That festival is called Griz Days, and the event is legendary.

Who exactly is the Griz? Check out this short video and discover him for yourself.  

It's stellar to get out into the mountains anytime of year, especially mountains that attached to one of Canada’s coolest towns! Whether you ski or not during Griz Days you and your crew will not go bored, check out all of these events and let us know which ones you’ll attend!
