Mountain Biking with Guillaume Boutet Lesperance

September has always been a favourite month for mountain biking in Fernie. Cooler temperatures, the start of the autumn colours and a few less folks on the trails – just perfect. Long-time staff member Gui shares the excitement about the September Bonus Weekend.

Heiko’s Trail and the Bisaro Cave

There is an otherworldly place just outside of Fernie. In this place, water carves its way out of the earth, and over geologic timespans, creates a massive hole in the side of a mountain. At this interface, darkness intermingles with light effortlessly to create an entirely separate ecosystem from the surroundings.
