Mountain Biking

FIRST they roll over, camera-ready, each small change a delight of awe to a new parent. A thousand photos later and you’ve lost friends on Facebook but to you it is still magic. Then they start to scooch or crawl, eventually stand, then walk and in Fernie, they begin to climb, ski and bike. A natural progression. A marvel to witness. Infants and toddlers shift and change without resistance and without fear.

As we shift into a new season the Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) is also moving into a new direction with hiring of a Trail Manager. This individual will be responsible for managing and coordinating volunteers, coordinating the inspection and maintenance of existing trails, managing budgets and providing weekly trail reports. This role is key to our trail network, as it will help us manage our volunteers more effectively, improve our reporting to funders and landowners and to the community at large.

Looking for a ride close to town this time of year? Cokato Road to Morrissey is a great option. A gravel bike is ideal for this ride but a mountain bike also works well.

As much as I love all of the seasons, spring holds a special place in my heart. A time of year that signifies new growth, fresh starts and warmer days. The magical time of year when for many, spending longer durations outside becomes possible.

The number of summer activities is on the rise in this beautiful Valley, drawing numerous people to our community with a substantial increase in summer tourism year after year.

It takes a lot of spirit to maintain our trail network. With over 300 kilometres of trails, we could not maintain and build our trails without the dedication of our volunteers.
