Summer is an ideal time to visit Fernie Alpine Resort.

Hikers can meander through high alpine trails, past meadows and forest that open to spectacular views overlooking Elk Valley. More advanced hikers can challenge themselves on the strenuous trek up Mount Hosmer.

Fernie is also one of Canada's premier mountain biking destinations. The resort offers chairlift-access mountain-biking on over 40km/25 mi of trails that range from smooth and easy dirt tracks to thrilling steeps and stunts for more advanced riders.

Additional recreational sports available at the resort include fly-fishing, horseback riding along backcountry trails, kayaking and river-rafting expeditions as well as tennis and guided, interpretive walks.

Fernie Alpine Resort offers daily day camps for kids ages 3–16, with activities ranging from mountain biking to fine arts. Visitors can also book river-rafting trips and helicopter tours.

Visit the Fernie Visitor Centre for more information on outdoor activities in the area.
