The Legendary TransRockies Challenge Goes Gravel - Registration opens September 21, 2020!

The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) has been working hard all season to keep the trails in tip-top shape. Here are some of the projects the crew will continue to work on this fall. 

Al Matador
Our volunteers and contractors will continue their hard work on Al Matador. Brushing, benching and rock armouring will continue as the weather permits. Improvements to this trail were able to happen from the funds we received from the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) Trail Enhancement grant received last year.

It’s September, how did that happen? It’s also the last of the Donation Box Scavenger Hunt, with the most challenging location to date - Swine Flu! When this article was written, the Pig Donation Box was located lower down on this wonderful trail on Mount Proctor, but has recently been moved to the top of the trail, offering stunning views of the mountains and town of Fernie. 

Hopefully over the summer, you have gained strength, endurance and curiosity and you and your family will make it to the best location yet! 

September’s Education Issue is a great time to review and bring awareness to trail etiquette. 

Summer at Fernie Alpine Resort is in full swing, with record summer passes purchased and many visitors and residents enjoying all that the lift-access offers including a variety of hikes and an extensive network of trails for all levels of riders and preferred styles of riding.

The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) has been working with its member clubs, event organizers and landowners to get some fun events going for the summer. Due to COVID-19 the events have gone virtual. But you don’t need to slap on a race plate to challenge yourself. Check out the great options.
