Fernie Official Opening: June 29th (Preview Weekend June 22/23)
Kicking Horse Official Opening: June 28th
Fernie and Kicking Horse have been quietly developing their bike parks over the last few years, staying away from the hype of some of the more western parks. You could call 2013 their breakthrough season though, as both resorts are hosting high profile races, and opening the doors to some awesome new riding.
So what’s new this year in Fernie? Last fall, the trailcrew focused on a massive technical terrain feature rebuild program. Trails like Ewok received an overhaul, with features designed for intermediate riders with a flowing series of wide wood berms, rollers, and varying line options no higher than three feet off the ground.
Fernie Alpine Resort is hosting the Cycling BC sanctioned Dunbar Cycles Summer Series DH BC Cup Finals August 30 – Sept 1, 2013. For more event information check out the series Facebook page or the Fernie Alpine Resort website. The Bike Park crew is busy prepping the mountain for the Season opening on June 29th with their brand new Bike Park mini hoe, keeping the Fernie flow it is quickly gaining notoriety for.
Kicking Horse is looking forward to the return of the Western Open on August 4th. The Bike Park trails trails have seen a recent emphasis on improving the beginner trails, while maintaining the alpine trails, unique rock features and machine built flow that experts have come to know and love.
