Four Trek Dirt Series coaches choose to call Fernie home, a fact that speaks both to the powder that lines the winters and the incredible mountain biking that fills the summers. Fernie offers something for everyone into riding - cross-country to downhill, and beginner to advanced.
The camp is hosted by The Guides Hut , which has easy access to a great morning skill site and huge range of trails right from their front door. Local terrain includes classic singletrack, roots, rocks, logs and bridges, as well as the addition of machine-built drops, jumps, and berms up at Fernie Alpine Resort.
Participants at the Fernie camp can choose to spend two days pedaling in the valley, two days using the lifts up at the resort, or one day in each. The camp includes one lift ticket for each participant, and then a discounted lift ticket for those wanted to ride DH twice.
Fernie is only three hours from Calgary, AB, and two from Kalispell, MT, so it's convenient for a quick weekend trip away too. If you already live here, we'd love to help you tweak your skills so that you can get even more enjoyment out of your own trails. And if you don't, well, we hope you'll find it quite easy to convince yourself to come.
During the camp weekend, The Guides Hut is offering participants 20% off bike purchases, 10% off all other store purchases, free "trail ready" service on personal bikes, and 25% off bike rentals. To book your rental in advance, call the shop at 250-423-3650.
