(In an adrenaline-pumping kinda way, that is.)
Best known worldwide for its never-ending steeps and thigh-deep powder in the winter, Fernie Alpine Resort is kicking off its summer season for adrenaline junkies and adventure seekers on Canada Day (July 1, 2005). Summer chair operations run daily from 10:00am â€˜til 5:00pm with two chairs for double the fun on weekends. Get your season pass dirt grindâ€™in cheap for just $149.00 during the Early Bird Sale at Fernie Alpine Resort or online at www.skifernie.com/summer before July 1 and be entered to win a Devinci Remix One full-suspension mountain bike valued at $2,200.
The resort invested more money this year than ever before into the summer trail system, inviting renowned trail builder Ryan Schultz to return this season. Schultz has been busy building new trails similar to high-speed trails like Top Gun and the stunt studded Aggravated Assault, and will tweak existing trails to his high standards. With extensive machine work and handwork, Fernieâ€™s expanded trail system will be ready for riders opening day. Online Trail Reports are available daily starting opening day so youâ€™ll always know what to expect when riding the mountain. Or, call the Mountain Adventure Centre at (250) 423-4655 for trail information.
Fernie Alpine Resort will play host to a number of stellar events this summer including the Canada Cup Downhill and Cross Country Races on July 30 and 31. But the hill isnâ€™t just for advanced bikers. Fernie also offers mountain biking clinics for men and women, kidâ€™s camps and on-foot exploration on a number of breath-taking hiking trails.

Fernie Alpine Resortâ€™s Mountain Adventure Centre is your source of summer fun, offering guided fishing, horseback riding, rafting and more.
