RACE DATES & REGISTRATION

Our multi-use trails have already received some love this year with lots more to come! The purchase of two e-bikes and a trailer has allowed our Trail Crew and volunteers to tune up our trails even faster! Supporting local, the e-bikes were purchased from Straight Line, and the trailer from The Guide’s Hut. Our Trails Manager, Ben has already put the e-bike to test taking it up Southern Comfort! Ben and our other volunteers have been busy clearing a lot of the blown down on the trails including Green Alligator, Today’s Special, Snoop Lion and Southern Comfort.

Winters in Fernie can be a blast but they can also be busy, long and draining – especially for business managers and owners. And no winter has been longer or seemingly darker than the one we just collectively endured. 

The RDEK is reminding residents about the need to be cautious around all waterways and prepared in the event of seasonal flooding as the warm temperatures this week have resulted in melting of the higher elevation snowpack. 

“We are expecting to see water levels rise as the high-elevation snowpack melts,” says Information Officer, Loree Duczek. “We encourage everyone to stay clear of creek banks and rivers during this spring run-off and urge anyone who lives in an area prone to seasonal flooding to take steps to protect their properties.” 

Look up from any Fernie patio on a summer evening and you may see some colourful action in the skies above you. Paragliding has been a part of mountain sports in Fernie for more than four decades, and the area is home to an active and rapidly growing flying community. 

Very often a hiking outing has a destination to lure you from the comforts of your normal surroundings. Whether it is a river, lake, mountain ridge, or just a tranquil meadow, these attractions make us get out and explore. The hikes suggested in this article have the reward of walking amongst the big trees in the local forests.
