I'm writing from Scotland , UK, and will be in Fernie end January 2003 for ten days with a group of boarders / skiers. Can anyone give me any information on backcountry day routes accessible from the lifts and by hiking (not having to return to the lifts)?

We're all reasonably experienced (Alps, Whistler, winter climbing / touring in Scotland etc) and have our own backcountry gear.

As we're only there for ten days it would help to speed things up by getting the beta on the right terrain and routes early on, rather than being bumblys for a couple of days.

Also if anyone has got any info on getting to Kicking Horse from Fernie that would be helpful - is it possible for a couple of days?

Anyone in who might be in Fernie at the same time we could exchange a beer in exchange for the info.
