Celebrate BC Trails Day by lending a helping hand to  two amazing non-profit organizations, the Fernie Trails Alliance and Coal Creek Heritage Society. They'll be joining forces and working on the popular Kiddie Down trail adding some blue/green features as well as upgrading some berms and earthwork.

Become a volunteer, support the community and the trails you ride and make new friends!

When you live in a mountain town that can have winter-like weather from as early as October to as late as April (sometimes May!), not much stops people from going outside to participate in the sports they enjoy. 

Which makes it pretty clear why Fat Biking, Trail Running and Snowshoeing have become such popular winter activities in Fernie.  

Start 2024 off on the right foot, tire, ski or snowshoe by joining the Elk Valley Streak! The goal is to get active outside for as many days in the month of January for a minimum of 30 minutes. Remember, while we all likely endeavour to participate all 31 days, life happens! If you miss a day or can only squeeze in 10 minutes, that’s okay. Get as many days in as works for you and be proud of your efforts.

As I write this article the first snow has hit our wonderful peaks around Fernie. I love winter and all that it brings to the Elk Valley, and with this snow it means winter trail grooming is just around the corner! 

The Fernie Trails Alliance along with Tourism Fernie, the Coal Creek Heritage Society and the Fernie Nordic Society have formed the Winter Grooming Collaborative. Each organization works to maintain a variety of multi-use trails in Fernie with the support of Resort Municipality Initiative Funding.
