Fernie gets stoked for winter every November at the annual Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest!

The Fernie Ski and Board Film Fest is Fernie’s unofficial launch to the snow season! Skiers and boarders gather at the Fernie Community Centre to celebrate the coming snow season and watch the season's top ski and board films.

Fear. It is a bit of a weird one. It comes along and sneaks up and hits you when you really don’t want it to. Fear is our neurological response to certain environmental or thought-provoking exposures that wants to pump us with adrenalin to ‘fight’ or ‘flight’ a given situation. What if, instead, we do not put ourselves into that situation in the first place? 

Trying something new is always scary and can cause all kinds of emotions including excitement, anxiety, and perhaps fear. However, it’s always great to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. As we transition into fall, it’s an ideal time to try a different activity on our trail network. Alternatively, check out a trail or trails you have never explored before. 

Our trail network is designed to be inclusive for all non-motorized users including bikers, runners, walkers, and hikers. Our member and supporter clubs including Fernie Mountain Bike Club, Fernie Nordic Society, Stag Leap Running and Fernie Trails and Ski Touring Club represent all the various trail users.

The 2021 Wake Canada Wakesurf Nationals were held over the weekend on the shores of Moyie Lake, attracting 58 competitors from across Canada.

“The East Kootenay is home to some of the most talented riders in the country and it was so great to be able to showcase our region and our local talent over the weekend,” says Wake Canada Wakesurf Director Isaac Hockley.

There are many Fernieites who have left the city-dweller lifestyle behind for the adventure-packed, outdoor way of life this town has to offer. What was once a several-hour drive to access adventure has turned into a five-minute pedal from your house to reach some amazing terrain.

In this vlog That Mountain Life showcaseS 5 family friendly activities you can do in Fernie, BC when visiting in the summer. Of course some of these things are great to do without kids as well. This video is sponsored by Tourism Fernie.
