A few Key Points for bike fit and a handful of exercises to keep you “balanced” off the bike. 

We learn countless invaluable lessons from our parents. And that learning never ends, even in their passing. Recently, I lost my father. The loss feels big and heavy. So big, that if I give it too much thought, I fear that my sadness may swallow me whole. Yet as we move out of winter and into spring, I too, am slowly coming back to life.

Avalanche Canada will issue its final forecast for the season on March 28, which is about a month earlier than normal. The final three-day forecast will remain in effect until March 30.

Avalanche Canada’s forecasts rely primarily on data from a network of avalanche professionals across western Canada. The early closure of backcountry operations due to the Covid-19 pandemic has cut off much of that data stream, so the warning service is no longer receiving enough information to issue accurate forecasts. 

There is nothing more rewarding than watching your children thrive on the mountain. Seeing their genuine enjoyment of snow, skiing and shredding. To watch them fall in love with exactly what you love: Fernie powder.

Stick on the Prehab theme to see what you can do in March to avoid having a running in jury in May! Here are some tips and exercises to get you started.

Have you ever noticed how empowered you feel after getting a good dose of fresh mountain air? It can be as simple as a walk with the dog, a stroll down main street or hitting the trails on your bike, snowshoes or skis. It can also be empowering to enjoy these activities with a group. 

Jess having a spot on the tour speaks volume on her skills and ability. Your technique in all snow conditions is dialed down, balance and control in the air is perfected, and you have fluidity and speed in your riding – all things the judges critique your line on.

If you are interested in making your cross country skiing a little smoother, and possibly a little more enjoyable, give these exercises a try.

Have a great winter and don’t be afraid to show your love for the Fernie and Sparwood trails.

My son was born just shy of Valentine’s Day. The first article of clothing to adorn his body was a red knitted toque with a white heart on it, donated to the hospital by caring volunteers. His first experience of the world, besides utter shock I assume, was one of love. Warm, soft and cozy love.
