The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) is working hard on Fernie’s potential as a world class trail network. We currently have over 300 kilometres of trails plus the trail network at Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR). Our trails have a variety of terrain and are suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.

There are many approaches used to preserve the region’s history, from installing interpretive signs or offering new museum exhibits, to creating conservation plans or training archival staff. This year, Columbia Basin Trust is supporting 43 heritage projects with over $2.8 million to support efforts to honour the past by conserving it for the future.

Week 1 is community week!
Visit from the fire Dept
Visit from the police and a field trip to city hall to learn all about what they do for us and our community .
Lots of arts and crafts, water games and free play time too!

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.

It is hard to walk around our community for even a brief amount of time and not be aware that there are community builders all around us, leaning in and supporting whatever they are passionate about.
