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.

The Fernie Heritage Libary host the annual Ride with Librarians event happening Thursday, May 31st from 4:00-5:30pm.

The ride starts at at the Library garden at 4:00pm. This ride is created to raise awareness of library programming and to bring the Fernie Book Bike back into the community for the Summer months. It is an enthusiastic and leisurely bike parade for ALL AGES and they are hoping for lots of local riders, whistles and waves!

Fernie Golf Club has been an iconic amenity in the region for both residents and visitors since 1918 – marking 100 years this summer.

This is Fernie. We provide support to one another; we help one another; we celebrate each other’s successes and lend aid in times of trouble.

Trail Razr III is going to be just as much fun (if not more) and they hope they can BEAT the $22,000 that they made in 2017. All funds go to the Fernie Trails Alliance and are used to build and maintain our amazing trail network. 

Our trails do not build themselves. It is only because of our strong community of passionate volunteers and contractors that we have the amazing trail network we have in Fernie.

It's going to be a busy summer at Island Lake Lodge, with the 2nd Annual Untamed Kootenays event helping kick it off!
