Elk Valley Ultra
Now in its 5th year, this high-vert, challenging 50km, encompassing some of Fernie’s best trails and jaw dropping views, returns. 2023 sees the return of their 2022 course, while also offering a NEW! 15km distance.
Those going the full distance will take on the iconic Leg 1 up and over Mt. Fernie, onto Rocky Road, down to Island Lake Lodge Catskiing, before cruising through the Old Growth. Leg 2 follows the old Rail Trail, heading up punchy Verboten, before a fast descent onto the rolling, loamy Provincial Park trails, over to Fernie Alpine Resort. Leg 3, (the 15km route), is a tour of the ski hill, climbing all the way up through Cedar Bowl to the base of the dramatic Headwall, before traversing all the way across into Timber Bowl for a steep descent to the Finish Line.
