Getting from Cranbrook airport to Fernie on a Monday

Hi,

My girlfriend and I have booked a flight from Vancouver to Cranbrook monday dec 9 2013.

Just saw on the shuttle website http://www.fernieconnector.com/ it doesnt run on Mondays and Thursdays!!

Anyone got any other ideas how to get there with our 2 travel bags and 2 snowboard bags?

A part from an expensive taxi ride.

Regards,

Marty

Don't know how many days you have in Fernie, but how about one night in Cranbrook and take the shuttle the next day?

There's a Greyhound coach leaves Cranbrook at 12:05 am and takes an hour+ to Fernie.

Its too far for a taxi. Agree that Greyhound or hitchhiking is probably your only option.

Shame that there isn't a passenger train. They run cargo trains along that route all the time. CP should add a passenger car to their trains and take skiers.

Actually, the taxi isn't a bad option, since you have 2 people. It's $180 for up to 6 people. The Fernie connector is $75 per person each way, so if you happen to find a 3rd person on your flight wanting to make the trip, you'll actually make out better in the end.

All the cabs I saw in Fernie were vans or SUVs, so shouldn't be a problem to transport your gear.
