Scrambles in Fernie

You can go skiing, skating, ice fishing, fat biking, snowshoeing, and the list goes on in the winter. The backcountry also boasts untouched powder tailor-made for experienced adventurers who’ve taken an avalanche course! Then there’s the hiking, biking, boating, rafting, fishing opportunities when summer air drifts in.
But the adventures in Fernie aren’t the only things creating a memorable experience; the town itself is quaint and picturesque, thanks to the timeless brick buildings set against a dramatic mountainous backdrop. You’ll find fun in-town outings along Victoria Avenue!
