Big mountain riding in Fernie, BC doesn't get much bigger than this annual freeride race on Dirt Diggler.

The proline level trail begins high in the alpine of the Canadian Rockies where the race drop on Morrissey Ridge is accessed by 4x4 shuttle. Dirt Diggler descends 3,500ft over 6.5km of steeps, loose coal dust chutes, and great air time down to the valley bottom.

On a casual day with friends, the ride down is enjoyed for over an hour but in race mode, the fastest riders are finished around the 10-minute mark.
