Rally around sporting events that draw spectators from around the world to the Kootenay Rockies.
If you love racing, be sure to catch the Fernie Sports 5 & 10km Run, and the Heart of the Rockies Triathlon in Invermere. Teamwork, adrenaline and challenge align during the sea2summit adventure race series. During this one-day or three-day stage race held in Panorama, competitors must negotiate the Columbia Valley's finest terrain in a race against the clock. The courses include paddling, mountain biking, trekking/trail running, orienteering, and a few surprises along the way.
The Kootenay Ice in Cranbrook (Western Hockey League) and Trail Smoke Eaters (BC Hockey League) provide lots of hockey-cheering opportunities.
