Fernie offers some of the finest cross-country skiing in all of the Kootenays. The Fernie Nordic Society offers nordic skier only trails at the Fernie Golf and Country Club in town and at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre near Mount Fernie Provincial Park. There is also Nordic skiing to be found on Island Lake Road from the lower parking lot, in the Montane area of Fernie, and up at Fernie Alpine Resort. So to help you make the most of it, we’ve put together a few of our favourite loops for you to enjoy!

Cross-country skiing is truly a sport for all-ages, and one that can be fun for parents, kids and even toddlers. Here are a few tips to make it fun while you introduce the sport to your family.
