With the increase in Fat Tire biking this winter, we thought we would suggest some basic trail guidelines for biking on groomed, multi use trails:
1. ONLY ride in areas that allow biking. The Elk Valley Nordic Centre and the Golf Course groomed trails DO NOT allow biking. Island Lake Lodge and the groomed cross country ski trails at Fernie Alpine Resort are multi-use, but at the same time we need to be respectful that the trails are not primarily groomed for biking.
2. YIELD to all other users when riding and ride in control; you’ve got brakes, but others don’t. Also yield to motorized vehicles.
Indie Films Fernie and The East Kootenay Brain Injuries Association (EKBIA) are proud to present The Crash Reel http://thecrashreel.com/store/?index.php
an inspiring and amazing movie about Kevin Pearce (Olympic-gold snowboarding hopeful) who had a serious brain injury in late 2009, and follows his recovery and the impact on him, his family and the world of competitive snowboarding. This is a film for all, not just winter sport lovers, it is full of compassion and heart warming family interactions as well as wonderful learning opportunities.
Come on out to the screening on February 3rd, 7pm at The Vogue, Fernie.
Tickets are available now for Dare to Dream: An Evening with Beckie Scott. This is a celebration and fundraiser for the Fernie Nordic Society. In case you haven't heard, the Fernie Nordic Society has big plans this winter with new trials opening; it would be great to see everyone out at this special evening to support the FNS and help them with some fundraising for their exciting winter ahead.
