Califernian
 n.— «“Every little bit of luck helps,” says the mountain operations manager at B.C.‘s legendary Fernie Alpine Resort.…The town is such a pleasant diversion from the slopes, with its main drag of century-old hotels, cafés and shops (stocked with the newest ski and boarding gear), that oil-rich Calgarians have been fuelling a building boom of pricey condos and chalets here, prompting locals to dub them “Califernians.”» —“CaliFernie dreamin’” by Susan Pigg in Fernie, British Columbia Toronto Star (Canada) Dec. 1, 2007.
