Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Fernie offers three distinct cross-country ski areas, ranging from the valley-bottom golf course to the more challenging terrain of Island Lake Lodge and Fernie Alpine Resort. At each, the scenery is fantastic.
Cross-Country Ski at Fernie Golf Course
The volunteer groomers of the Fernie Nordic Society maintain 8km/5mi of trails on the Fernie Golf Course. These trails, set for both skate and classic technique, will suit both beginner and intermediate skiers. The club runs a children's program that meets on Saturdays. Day passes can be ordered online through the club's website.
Island Lake Lodge
For a more strenuous workout, try the 8km/5mi climb from the parking lot to Island Lake Lodge. Additional groomed trails are available from the lodge. An advance reservation can secure a snowcat ride up to the lake and an excellent lunch at Tamarack Lodge, one of the four buildings that make up the resort.
