Multiple Trek Dirt Series coaches choose to call Fernie home, a fact that speaks both to the powder that fills the winters and the beautiful mountain bike trails that line the summers. Fernie offers something for everyone into riding -- tech and flow, and beginner to advanced.
The camp is hosted by The Guides Hut and has quick access to a great morning skill site, community skills park, and a huge range of trails. Local terrain includes classic singletrack, roots, rocks, logs, bridges and a pump track.
We'll focus our camp on the pedaling oriented trails, simply because Fernie has so many incredible ones. If you're keen on lift-accessed DH, please check out the camps in Whistler, Mammoth and Angel Fire, and if shuttled descents work well for you, look to Calgary too.
Fernie is only three hours from Calgary, AB and two from Kalispell, MT so it's convenient for a quick weekend trip away. 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 items, 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.
The best option for accommodations in Fernie is to do a general online search. We start and end our days at the Guides Hut, but everything is fairly close in Fernie so, in terms of location, you can't really go wrong.
