We have two types of Club which sit under the umbrella that is Fernie Trails Alliance – Member Clubs and Supporter Clubs.
Whether a Member or a Supporter, each club operates entirely independently, offers a wide variety of year-round activities, and actively supports the FTA.
Find out more, below. Or, if you operate a Club which would like to support the FTA, please contact us for more information.
Our Member Clubs sit under the umbrella that is Fernie Trails Alliance, primarily focusing on the enhancement, promotion and growth of the non-motorized, multi-use trail network.
Memberships for these clubs allow access to Club events, activities + hut bookings. Head to their sites to learn more.

FERNIE TRAILS & SKI TOURING CLUB
The association began over three decades ago as the Elk Valley Ski Touring Association (EVSTA), a loosely knit group of ski touring enthusiasts eager to protect and promote public access to recreation in the Fernie area. It has evolved to become a strong advocacy group for public recreation in the region.
Members of the FT&STC have over the course of the past several years contributed significantly to trail development, maintenance and promotion in the region
If you want to book a hut, then join the club. FT&STC Memberships run for a winter season.
Supporter Clubs also actively support the Fernie Trails Alliance, however they primarily operate on trails/areas that aren’t directly maintained by the FTA.
Head to our Supporter Club sites, for full information on their memberships + services.
