Fernie BC: A Mountain Biking Mecca

NONSTOP came to Fernie 10 years ago for it’s cult status as one of the best underground powder destinations in the world. If you’re serious about all mountain free-ride skiing or snowboarding, you will have heard the rumours about Fernie.

What we weren’t aware of a decade ago was the fruits of Fernie in the summer. All of us who work for NONSTOP are avid skiers and snowboarders, and didn’t expect to enjoy summertime in Fernie as much, if not more than the winter. The hiking, golf, white water rafting and most notably the mountain biking is out of this world.

The well known saying comes to mind; Come for the winter, stay for the summer.

Fernie bowls summertime

This year Fernie Alpine Resort re-opens for Mountain biking and hiking on 25th June 2011.

When Fernie powder snow melts and the mountain becomes awash with wild grasses and flowers, people begin to explore the beautiful natural landscape of the 5 Bowls not on skis, but by Mountain Bikes, on foot and or from the Scenic Chairlift ride.

With 37 trails for Mountain Biking, the most in the Canadian Rockies, Fernie offers something for all riding abilities.

“The variety of trails offered for Mountain Bikers is un-matched in the Canadian Rockies and the hiking is out of the park…incredible”says Matt Mosteller, spokesman, Fernie Alpine Resort. “Whether you want heart pumping mountain bike ride on a gritty single-track trail, a simple 1km walk on a scenic path or just a peaceful ride on our chairlifts- it is all here for you to enjoy summer in the mountains!” adds Mosteller.

Fernie has stepped it up a gear for this summer season, with new mountain bike trail enhancements:

  • NEW bridgework feature on Aggravated Assault
  • Trail upgrades to TopGun
  • New Advanced Level Women’s Bike Camp
  • Upgrades to the Mountain Bike Skills Park
  • New Scott Voltage FR 20’s mountain bikes for the Demo Fleet

Fernie is hosting some fantastic events this summer, from world tour mountain bike events to a famous annual music festival;

  • Fernie Writers Conference July 17-24
  • TransRockies Mountain Bike Race August 7-9
  • Wapiti Music Festival August 19-21
  • NOS Fernie Gravity BikeFest August 20-21

Want to be a part of it? You can stay in the heart of Fernie at the Red Tree Lodge and even come on our:
