After last month’s arena tragedy has left the community without a place to skate, Fernie will build an outdoor rink.
Memorial Arena remains closed as RCMP investigate the suspected ammonia leak that killed three men October 17th.
A group of volunteers have come forward to help with the construction of the ice pad beside the Aquatic Centre. Read more here.

(from 2014’s Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam)
The Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam is an exciting event to see, especially for my little ones who are just starting to play at the bike park. On top of the big Saturday event there’s also a Qualifying/causal jam on Friday night from 7-9. Saturday night kicks off around 5 pm and goes on until after 10.
From the ferniebike.ca website:
“Jump off the Fernie Dirt Jump Park, a ton of crazy bikers on jump bikes with big lights, big sounds and lots of excitement!
The WAM BAM dirt jump jam is an FMB (Freeride Mountain Biking) World Tour bronze event hosted by the FMBC (Fernie Mountain Bike Club). Look out for big air, crazy stunts, twists, turns and wipeouts! It’s a day and night of great entertainment and competition at the Dirt Jump Park next to the Fernie Aquatic Centre.
Kids and novice welcome for daytime fun and competition. Pro comps are under the evening lights!
Stay tuned at https://www.facebook.com/events/1606061626327936/ for up to date information.”
