Purchase A

2021 Fernie Trails Pass

The FTA manages the majority of all of Fernie’s multi-use trails, and the year-round costs associated with them – from maintenance and trail building to winter grooming.

The Fernie Trails Pass is a way for locals and visitors to support and give back to the Fernie trail network. With options from day and weekend use, to annual single and family memberships, there is a way for everyone to support our trails.

Trail Passes and Member Club memberships run a calendar year, from Jan 1st 2021 – Dec 31st 2021.

*Purchasing a Trails Pass is Non-Mandatory, however does bring about excellent trail karma.*

A Season’s Wrap up from the FTA

Like many this spring, the season started off challenging, as the Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA), and our associated Member Clubs, worked through the changes presented by a global pandemic. After a rocky, and somewhat damp spring, it soon became clear that if there was one place to be during the summer months, it was on […]


Whether the upcoming cold snap stays, or goes, one thing is for sure, winter is knocking at the door.
