The Fernie Nordic Society and its volunteers aim to promote crosscountry skiing as a healthy winter activity for all ages. You will support our network of groomed cross country ski trails in Fernie by purchasing a membership for 2023-2024 or a day pass. You can also make a donation. Your membership makes it possible for us to professionally groom and track set the trails all winter season long as well as to provide porta-potties at our trailheads.
Our 2023-2024 membership drive is now open.

Kids Lessons or Skill Development Program (Jackrabbit, Bunnyrabbit, TrackAttack)
Our program has been running since 2007 with great popularity. It is aimed at improving the skills of young skiers aged 3 to 16, all within a fun environment. All coaches are volunteers and trained to CrosscountryBC standards. The enrollment into the program is limited by the number of coaches, so enroll early and/or consider becoming a coach. See the Kids Lessons page on this site for more details.
Ski Gear Rental
The club has several sets of skis/boots/poles available for skiers enrolled in the Skill Development Program. If required, a set of ski gear may be rented for the duration of the ski season at a very affordable cost. Any skier in the Bunnyrabbit, Jackrabbit and TrackAttack groups may get one classic set for $50 to take home for the season. In addition, the TrackAttack skiers have the possibility of learning the skate ski technique; for these skiers, one set of skate skis and poles may be rented for $25.
If a young skier is interested in joining our new racing team Fernie Nordic Racers, see more details on our Race Team page. The racing team fee is in addition to the membership fee.Any questions? Get in touch with a volunteer.
