Providing some of the most beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains, the cross country trails at the Fernie Golf Course are great for everyone to enjoy.
Fernie Winter Trail Map - Nordic Skiing, Snowshoeing, Fatbiking and Nature Walks
About 12 km of groomed tracks are available on the golf course. There is little change of elevation on these trails so they are optimal for beginner skiers. The start of the trails is at The Clubhouse (not open during winter season) of the golf course where you will find ample free parking. There is no access to washrooms or facilities at this location. The trails are jointly groomed by the Golf Course and by the Nordic Society volunteers on a regular basis.
There is a box next to the Clubhouse at the Fernie Golf Course Trails for membership registrations and to deposit your 2016/2017 day-use fee of $10 or $20 for families which includes insurance. You may consider getting a Nordic Society season pass for only $70/adult, $45/student or $160/family
Directions from highway 3: turn south off the highway at the 13th Street lights, then turn left on 6th Avenue for 2 blocks behind A&W & Best Western, then right on Fairway Drive for 800 metres to the parking lot of the Fernie Golf & Country Club.
The golf course trails do not permit dogs, bikes or snowshoes. Dogs are welcome, under control of their owners, on the Community Dyke trails, the multi-use trails at Montane and at Fernie Alpine Resort. Please keep dogs off of the groomed tracks.
Several other cross-country skiing trails can be found in Fernie and area.
Formal ski lessons are offered for both Bunnyrabbit (age 5 and under) and Jackrabbit (age 6-10) skiers, with a Track Attack Program for kids aged 11 and older. Starting in the 2014-2015 season the Nordic Society is creating a Racing Team for kids 10 years or older who must have been previously enrolled in nordic ski lessons for at least one season. If your child is interested in joining the team, please contact the coach Jeff Williams.
