summer

To no surprise, from June through September I never take a lot of time to slow down, another new hike or trail beckoning me, another Wapiti Music Festival echoing off Fernie Mountain through town, pulling me in with its ever-epic lineup. Until recently, when I discovered an adventurous activity that forces me to relax—paddle boarding.

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.

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

Summer in Fernie is FULL ON. Whether you are a hiker or paddler, are biking the gnarly terrain or sitting at a desk, we all face the requirement of taking care of our body in order to maintain it for the coming adventure.
