River Opening for Fly Fishing - June 15th
We've been fishing the lakes around Fernie for a short while now, but nothing beats casting dry flies on Fernie’s pristine freestone rivers. Fernie has three guiding companies operating float, or wade tours and can point you towards the hungriest Cutthroat and Bull Trout in our waters. If you've never cast a rod before don't be afraid to ask about beginner lessons.
Bike Park & Scenic Chair Rides - June 22nd - September 2nd
Fernie Alpine Resort's Elk Chairlift starts turning on June 22nd. Now the snow's away, the hikers, sightseers and downhill mountain bikers can play. If biking sounds a little too intense, take a relaxing scenic chair ride up towards the subalpine for a hike. The views down the valley are stunning.
