Getting a little, well, stir-crazy in the fall as the looming winter leaves you craving for a change in scenery. Jesse can't shake it. She must go somewhere.
Winter can be cold. The snowbanks are high enough to bury stop signs, and with the right storm, deep enough to bury your car. With that in mind, here is a list of things that might make your winter in Fernie a little brighter; comforting, delicious, practical things that will take the sting out of any frost you might acquire.
We have so much to be grateful for in Fernie. With all the recent Wildfires in BC and surrounding area, we are truly fortunate to have been minimally impacted. One trail that we have so many people to give our gratitude to is the Elk Valley Trail (part of The Great Trail/Trans Canada Trail).

September has always been a favourite month for mountain biking in Fernie. Cooler temperatures, the start of the autumn colours and a few less folks on the trails – just perfect. Long-time staff member Gui shares the excitement about the September Bonus Weekend.
If you’ve been thinking about learning how to canoe or kayak on the lake or river, but think it’s too expensive, a hassle or scary then September is the perfect time to jump in a boat, enjoy the mountains from the water, get some exercise and explore.

Mountains surround us. We live, work, and play amongst them. Where you have a bunched up rug, you have a mountain. And where you have Prairies and the Canadian Shield, you have hardwood floors.
What a summer, it’s hot and the rivers are not! If you want to float, boat, fish or soak it’s time to unplug, put the phone down and head out to one of our beautiful rivers.
Community who love fishing and the Elk River, or just like a good story and amazing cinematography, are invited to join ERA and watch this inspirational documentary.
This month’s Spin to Win contest is for the Fernie Tears & Gears Trail Running/Mountain Biking Duathlon on September 3.
There is an otherworldly place just outside of Fernie. In this place, water carves its way out of the earth, and over geologic timespans, creates a massive hole in the side of a mountain. At this interface, darkness intermingles with light effortlessly to create an entirely separate ecosystem from the surroundings.
Summer in Fernie is mountain biking. Or hiking, or fishing. Samantha Sedlowsky is one of Fernie Alpine Resort's talented veteran coaches who can help take your riding to the next level.
