Hosted by the Fernie Nordic Society and Save on Foods, this fun event kicks off the Snow to Ice Challenge that runs all Griz Day weekend.

Brought to you by the Fernie Nordic Society and the Fernie Trail Alliance.

Building on the success of 2018, the Fernie Nordic Society is hosting the 'Snow to Ice (cream)' Challenge. Complete four trail challenges within 72 hours to cash in on free Happy Cow ice cream and a glass of the best beer from Fernie Brewing.

Fernie offers some of the finest cross-country skiing in all of the Kootenays. The Fernie Nordic Society offers nordic skier only trails at the Fernie Golf and Country Club in town and at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre near Mount Fernie Provincial Park. There is also Nordic skiing to be found on Island Lake Road from the lower parking lot, in the Montane area of Fernie, and up at Fernie Alpine Resort. So to help you make the most of it, we’ve put together a few of our favourite loops for you to enjoy!

If you’re visiting Fernie with your family, you will be happily surprised to find the number of amenities available here for the younger cohort (and also those young at heart). As the number of families continues to grow, so does the programming, facilities and events geared to this market. Here are our top ten for you to explore this winter!
