New Lift in Fernie?

3,550 Vertical Feet up Polar Peak?  To Open this winter so says TGR on Facebook.  Any truth to this?  There's nothing on Fernies website.

Craig Morris is the authority on all things Fernie.


Looks like there is some truth to this!

There's pictures of construction floating around somewhere..

Given Fernie's reputation of being rather slow to open terrain, I wonder how much this lift will be open?

I can't say when they will finish construction based upon past history.  But that lift will be very important in allowing top-down avy control after storms.  From many years of reading Craig Morris' reports, long delays in opening terrain after storms are a key flaw with Fernie's current lift configuration.
