Snow Valley Lodging & Fernie Mountain Biking Giveaway

If you’ve always wanted to visit Fernie, British Columbia in the summer you’ll love this giveaway to celebrate my 10th blog anniversary.

I’ve teamed up with Snow Valley Lodging in Fernie to offer a two night stay along with a mountain biking package for two people from Fernie Alpine Resort.

Snow Valley Lodging in Fernie

Snow Valley Lodging subscribes to the Tiny Home philosophy and offers tiny living but with all the comforts, including a hot tub on the property. With a location in the centre of Fernie and everything within easy walking distance, why not enjoy a couple of days of adventures along with some R&R this summer.

Prices normally range from $129 to $169 + tax per night depending on what type of room is booked.
