Nordic Trails Closed in Fernie Golf Course

“LATEST NEWS:   The Golf Course management has now closed the trails to skiing due to melting snow.”

I really enjoyed the skiing at the golf course this winter. It’s close to home, you could do a short loop if you wanted to, and it’s not full of mountainous hills. I’ll miss it!

After watching the basics of cross country skiing video Rod and I went out again but this time to Coal Creek Road. It was so much better – I didn’t fall once, compared to falling repeatedly at Fernie Alpine Resort. My technique, or lack thereof, was all wrong!
