Convenient staging areas and groomed trails are only minutes from town. Groomed trails lead quickly into the backcountry providing easily accessible big mountain riding for all abilities. The welcoming on-trail facilities of Wranglers Cabin and Rolling Hills Cabin offer a great spot to warm up, meet other sledders and enjoy your packed lunch.
From the Coal Creek staging area, follow the groomed trail 16km to reach the Rolling Hills cabin and great family-friendly riding zones. Or, depart the Morrissey staging area and travel 15km to reach the Wrangler's Cabin and technical gladded sled zones. The two areas can be connected via the groomed Doug Dean or Summit Trails. Additional riding is available in the Ram, Corbin, and Hartley areas - each with their own staging points. These trails are groomed less regularly but lead to advanced alpine riding, also popular with sled-ski tourers.
Trail passes are required and the best way to sled in the valley is to purchase a Fernie Snowmobile Association membership, it's cheap, lasts all season and provides other great benefits. Sled rentals and gear are available at Ghostrider Motorsports, but book in advance. Sledding clinics to learn and explore the local area are also available. Trail maps can be purchased in town at Ghostrider Motorsports, Gearhub and the Fernie Visitor Centre on Hwy 3 east of town.
