hiking

September is the last month of summer and the first month of autumn. Those lingering warm days in the Northern Hemisphere provide a lovely time to travel, especially since the intense heat and summer rush has passed.

They’re wrong… it’s not… don’t listen… to whom? Those glass-half-full people who have gleefully been telling you since June 21 that ‘the days are getting shorter’ and now that September has arrived, ‘summer’s over.’

The secret history of Trees: Ancient Forests Uncover the story behind the burnt-out stumps that dot much of the mountain and how they’re part of a curse from Fernie’s past.

Explore the mystical, 800-year-old Old Growth Grove and discover how it gives away the secret of Fernie’s incredible amounts of powder snow in winter. Explore and discover more about the mountain and its secrets, and enjoy the beautiful scenery on one of our speciality hikes! Each hike has a different theme and is fully guided by our experienced, professional staff.

Gosh, it’s the beginning of July already! It’s been unseasonably warm and dry (especially compared to last year’s cooler-than-usual Spring).

Hopefully you’ve been able to get out on the trail a little, but if not, you’ve left it to a great time. The snow is melting (er ... gone, except maaaybe on shady parts of Heiko’s Trail). Mind you, although it’s a little hot a little early, there’s still water in the creeks for toe-cooling.

Well, winter is officially done, and we’re back to the simplicity of spring / summer adventures. But simple though it may be (at least I don’t generally summer-hike with my probe, transceiver, and shovel), there’s still a few things to keep in mind as we get back out there on dirt.
