Outdoors

Sometimes all Jesse wants is to hike alone. Alone enough to feel the thud of her boots against the earth. To have your face tickled by the breeze as it blows between yellowing larch needles. 

Fly fishing. Singular men, clad in shades of beige, stalking the riverbank. Suspenders and funny hats and deeply-lined foreheads from summers spent with the identical look of concentration on their faces. 

Distance: Approx. 10 km
Time: Approx. 1.5 – 2.5 hours

Knowledge of the climbing lingo as well as understanding common mistakes and how to avoid making them can lead to a life of climbing without ever having to make a rescue call.

Fernie is a beautiful place to live. Many places have a great view, but perhaps nowhere are the surroundings more magical than around Island Lake Lodge.

Sometimes you don't know what you need inside your soul. That is, until you're yelling out lyrics to Robyn's Show Me Love circa 1997 while wine-drunk, and on your way to a pool overlooking a vineyard.

Imagine staring at the stars and seeing a meteor shower in a beautiful, dark, mountain top setting! Join us for this unique and amazing Perseid Meteor Shower viewing & mountain top camping experience.

Your experience starts at 4pm at the base of the Timber Chair, check in, load your gear and then it’s up the chairlift to your camping area in the alpine to set up your camp site for the evening (hosts are available to assist).

Coal mining in the Elk Valley has been a way of life for over 100 years. Despite this rich heritage, few of us spend much time thinking about it. Mining was not always the job it is today. It was dangerous, backbreaking work.

My bucket list is made of mountains. Mountains I've yet to climb but hope to, ones with deep-blue lakes and jagged ridges, where the summit leaves you feeling infinite.

The Fernie Little Ripper Trail Passport is a series of skill/age appropriate mountain bike challenges. The goal is to ride the trail, find the checkpoint sign, and record the animal found on the sign in this booklet. Complete four challenges during the mountain bike season and receive a Fernie Little Ripper badge at one of Fernie’s local bike shops. If you are in for a big challenge try and complete all of the rides.
