Family day mountain biking Fernie was absolutely fantastic. Wife and 2 kids 7 year old and 10 year old. This was our first time to Fernie and we all love it. Looking forward to seeing you this winter.

Took the lift up the hill and it was spectacular. Stayed up there watching the mountain bike competitors bike the trails. Wild! You can enjoy a drink and lunch if you wanted at the Lost Boys Cafe. Very cool.
