Mountain Biking at Fernie Alpine Resort
In the summer Fernie Alpine Resort transforms from a ski hill to a downhill mountain bike resort. The area is also home to various cross country and road tracks, as well as downhill courses and a bike park in town. More information on the various trails around town can be obtained from the bike shops in town or the visitor information centre.
The resort opens from late June until early September with 2 chair lifts servicing 36 trails. The Elk chair runs everyday and stays open until 7pm on Thursdays, while the Timber chair opens during weekends and public holidays.
The number of trails at each level are shown below:
Good quality equipment can be either hired or purchased from the various bike shops and led torch light shops in Fernie. So if you don’t want to ship your own bike and safety gear over, you should have no problems equipping yourself when you arrive.
Fernie Alpine Resort also offers lessons, camps and guided tours for all levels of riders. For more information on the options available, trails maps, lift prices and hill conditions see the summer section of the official Fernie Alpine Resort website: www.debt-consolidation-program.us
