Fun, friendly gravity-fed DH MTB racing every week at Fernie Alpine Resort!

A new twist for 2024! The weekly Wednesday Mountain Bike events this year will be dedicated to downhill development for people of all ages to enjoy. For those of you looking to focus more on developing your own riding without the pressure of a weekly league this is the night for you!

Timing will be offered on a selection of beginner / intermediate routes, and each route will be included twice over the summer so you can track your own improvement. Each week, there will be draw prizes so that everyone can win, and each race you come to will get you an entry into the big end-of-summer prize draw.

Races run weekly from June 26th to August 29th, with the exception of July 3rd & 4th, followed by a beverage at Legends Mountain Eatery.

For more advanced riders or those seeking to take part in a weekly league, check our our Scott Thursday Night Races!
