Fernie, British Columbia
Fernie, a town in the lush Elk Valley amid the towering Rocky Mountains, is an all-season, outdoor adventure tourist destination.
In summer, mountain bikers grind along some of Canada’s best trails, including the expert-rated Ich Bin Sofa Trail. Hikers follow winding trails through 900-year-old cedar trees in the Cedar Valley Growth Reserve. Tere is also golfing, rafting, and kayaking in the area.
In winter, Fernie offers some of North America’s best downhill skiing and snowboarding.
Fernie is remarkable for its 19th century brick and stone buildings, which were constructed after wood buildings were banned following a catastrophic fire.
