“Intention is the starting point of every dream,” says Fernie mother of two, Sanne de Groot. “It is the creative power that fulfils all of our wants and our needs, whether for money, relationships, building a dream home, spiritual growth, or love.”

Inherited Spirit

We all have a spirit animal. For Fernie Mountain Mamas it is often the majestic and graceful Gran-Mama. Our saviour. Our calm amidst the storm. Our inspiration.

Volunteerism and Fall Views

It takes a lot of spirit to maintain our trail network. With over 300 kilometres of trails, we could not maintain and build our trails without the dedication of our volunteers.

Great Greens

I was in a funk. An I’m-almost-32-anddon’t- know-what-I’m-doing-with-mylife kind of funk. Lacking fulfillment and feeling misdirected, I decided to quit my job.

Peru, Mi Amor

There's a white-haired donkey standing along the banks of a river in the morning mist, and my food bag dangles in his mouth.

Trail Culture

When you think of culture things like art, heritage and music might come to mind. In Fernie biking is actually also a huge part of our culture.

The Freedom of Potential

Potential could be the freedom to do your best. The things we take for granted like going to school or having the ability to read a book are what some kids around the globe are praying for.

What If I Fall?

For some of us it’s about rediscovering potential, for others it’s about finding it. Wherever you are in your journey, I have one piece of advice I’d love to share: Enjoy the process. Figure out what lights you up, gets you going and gives you something to look forward to.

Potential Gold

Our senses come alive as we begin to explore what is possible through sensory exploration. Fernie Mountain Mamas understand the importance of exposing their children to new environments to increase their potential for progress. Adina Koran is one such Mama.
