Fernie is an ideal summer location with an incredible breadth of mountain activities. Come see why it is favoured by many over the mountain parks.
There is also world class fly fishing for cutthroat trout in the elk and wigwam rivers. Walk and wade or drift boats – its all here. There are also 110 rides of mountain biking in six different areas, and even 40km of trails kept open all fall/winter/spring – try fat tire biking on snow (rentals available).
You can also do incredible hikes around the resort or island lake, go cliff jumping, skeet shooting, whitewater rafting, kayaking, stand up paddle (SUP) boarding, ziplining, waterskiing or even take a beach day. The possibilities are endless. Let us make it happen for you at The Timbers.
