During these uncertain times it’s important to carve out time for yourself. Getting outside and hitting the trails is a great way to take a mental break from your daily commitments and boost your energy. A breath of fresh air always feels good!

If you are pressed for time, an easily accessible area from town is the Ridgemont trail network, which is frequently groomed in the winter. You can do this fun loop on your bike or on foot.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, SheJumps is hosting a free, virtual scavenger hunt to get women and girls outside.

You can join in from anywhere – all you need is a phone and to be outside, whether that’s on skis, on the trail, or just in your backyard or a nearby park. Regardless of age, ability, geographic location, or experience in the outdoors, Get the Girls Out! celebrates the power of nature to uplift and inspire.

Micah completed her first semester of college this past fall from home here in Fernie. Initially, it felt like a daunting task. She realizes now that it allowed her to learn independently and problem solve without resorting to immediate assistance from classmates or asking for help from professors as soon as she felt challenged.

When COVID brought her back home in March, I did my best to take advantage. Over the summer, I observed her getting reacquainted with a town that had developed and changed, just as she had, in the years they had been separated. 

To Kate, the Best of Fernie includes exploring the endless trail networks at various speeds; being inspired to push her own physical boundaries by a wonderfully active and motivated community. It’s also been on her mind recently, however, that these things can be a double-edged sword.
