Outdoors

It doesn't matter if it's in the summer or winter, we're always looking for always looking to relax and recharge. Hot springs whether natural or real provide both, and sometimes a little adventure too.

Exploring the outdoors and breathing in the fresh mountain air is often a great way to find your inner voice. A great escape from your daily life commitments is to hit the trails. A hike up to the top of Swine Flu is a good option. It’s relatively short and has a great view of the city from the bench at the top.

Children need to find their own voice. This can be in terms of the choice of their own style in clothing, their favourite foods or in the way they like to move. Every child likes finding their own way of doing things, but it sometimes takes a while for them to do so. That being said, there a few ways that you can help your child in finding their own “movement voice.”

“Push-ups are too hard. I’m not good at them!” Oh, okay, well, in that case, let's just never work on them and never get better at them. Whether you are a total newbie or a push-up boss, the options below will aid in increasing your success.

Remember when you were a kid and you had a ton of fun just making up games, playing sports with your friends, and doing cartwheels in the park? Thankfully, it’s fairly simple to re-introduce it back into our daily lives.

We are so lucky in Fernie and to have a wonderful outdoor playground. There are so many options to play outside during the winter season. When I think of “play” I envision fun, fresh mountain air, biking, and spending time with my dog Chloe on the trails. The new Inclusive Trail is a great one to take your pet along. It’s nice and wide and has a gentle grade.

It’s hard not to think skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and mountain biking when it comes to Fernie. Because in all honesty, that is what Fernie is famous for! As awesome as all these outdoor activities are, they often cast a shadow over many of the other offerings that Fernie has. This is especially true when it comes to indoor activities.

The MAST program surrounds you with like-minded people with a variety of skills and vastly different experiences. Get to know them!
