Never underestimate the potential of an invite to a BBQ or the small things, in this case it was the potential contained in a small smoked chicken wing that did more than just taste good.

This June, we will hopefully continue to get a bit of wet weather. Trails on Castle Mountain are known to dry out nicely. Here’s a great route to explore this month!

Want in on the act this summer? Here’re a few key tips to help you start off on the right foot, and get yourself to both the start, and more importantly, the finish...

Frustration, fear and lack of focus are three things we try to avoid on the golf course but they seem to creep in when we least need them. In what other sport do we get thinking about the smallest things? I know that when I'm playing golf I try not to think about what happens if the ball goes out of bounds, I think about where I'm trying to get the ball to land. Here are some tips to stay in the game even when things aren’t going your way.

Summer in Fernie is sweet. It can also feel rather short, after the lengthy months filled with all things pow. This is why it is very important to take advantage of being outdoors in the sun with friends and family for every occasion possible.

Summer carries with it moods as varied as the heat of the sun. Barbecues and busy gatherings with friends, baseball games and afternoon dips, a pitched tent on a sandy shoreline, the need for complete solitude beneath cliffs of a summit. Summers in Fernie are fraught with opportunity—sometimes the hardest part is choosing where to begin.

There are plenty of people who parrot the mountain-town refrain, “Came for winter and stayed for the summer” in these parts. While it doesn’t roll off the tongue as well, it’s also fitting to say, “Came for the outdoor rec and stayed for the culture.”
