About
This non-profit society manages over 20 km of nordic trails groomed for classic and skate winter skiing in two areas managed by the club. One area is in town at the Fernie Golf Course featuring 12 km of trails on fairly mellow terrain with wide open spaces. There are also more than 10 km of trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre next to Mount Fernie Provincial Park. To reach the Elk Valley Nordic Centre, go west from Fernie on Highway 3. At 3 km from the bridge, turn right at the Island Lake Lodge sign. Follow the road for 0.9 km to the Mt. Fernie Provincial Park sign. Turn left into the overflow parking lot at 0.2 km. The hilly terrain and isolated nature of the trails makes this a very exciting place to ski. The trails link up with the multi-use trails at Fernie Alpine Resort. Trail maps are posted at the kiosks located at the entrances to the trails. Please NO DOGS ON THE TRAILS at any time. The Elk Valley Nordic Centre Warming Hut is located at (49.485633 N, 115.090980 W).

The trails around the Fernie Nordic Centre are excellently maintained by the volunteers of the Fernie Nordic Society. Funding to keep these trails in shape is provided by the seasonal membership fee, or if you are just passing through, a very respectable day-use fee of $10 sing;e ($20 family).

Access to cross-country ski is open normally between December to early-April, though depending on how much winter snowfall, this may extend a few extra weeks on either side.

Trails are moderate to mildly-strenuous, with some short climbs. The figure-eight loops can connect to Fernie Alpine resort which is a great spot to grab lunch before even continuing around on their trails (Silk, Manchuria, & Scandia) if you're feeling particularly hardcore.

If you're looking for more areas to cross-country ski whilst in town, I'd definitely recommend the Fernie Golf Course (for beginners), and Fernie Alpine Resort.
