Fernie Alpine Resort has made a number of enhancements to its Legendary Bike Park for this upcoming summer season including:

Current plans mean these trails will actually grow in length, see berms and rollers added to the flat ski run sections on the lower mountain and a large bridge rebuild. Deer trail riders will now have opportunity to ride through open alpine flower meadows on their way to base.
