About the Ghostriders

The Ghostriders consistently attract some of the biggest audiences in the league, often reaching up to 1000 attendees per game. The Fernie Ghostriders are the Kootenay Conference champions for 2023-2024 after a 4-2 win over the former 2-time Cyclone Taylor Cup and 2014 Keystone Cup winners, Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

The Fernie Ghostriders play in the Eddie Mountain Division of the Kootenay International Junior Ice Hockey League. Head Coach is Ty Valin. The Ghostrider name comes from the iconic shadow that forms at sunset on Mt Hosmer in Fernie, which is clearest at the start of the hockey season (and during the summer months). Formerly a Junior B Hockey Team, the division was upgraded to Junior A in 2023. 

The Ghostriders won the division during the 2011/2012 season, and the KIJHL in the 2007/2008 season, going on to take the bronze medal at the Cyclone Taylor Cup.

The Ghostriders hosted the Cyclone Taylor Cup (KIJHL, PIJHL & VIJHL Provincial Championships) for the 2010/2011 season, where they took the silver medal.

Fernie won the 2018-2019 Division Semi-Finals in a 4-0 knockout against 3rd place Columbia Valley Rockies. They were knocked out of the tournament by the 1st place Kimberley Dynamiters in a 4-0 Division Final.
