Mount Fernie Provincial Park is a beautiful spot for an adventure in the winter months.
Not only will you get some exercise, enjoy some fresh air and be treated to some fantastic views, but you will be adding a service to our trail network. As this area is non-motorized, snowshoeing is needed to help keep the trails packed down for multi-use fun. The goal is to be able to link Stove and Mushroom Head to Phat Bastard, Red Sonja and Black Betty. In addition, create a nice loop up Stove and down Dem Bones.
So how can you help? Head up Stove for a good snowshoe crossing a few board walks, small bridges and navigating some switchbacks near the top. Turn right for a short grunt up the powerline to Dem Bones. Follow the sign down Dem Bones for a nice loop back down to the bottom of Stove.
