In the mean time, what about some pre-ski physical training to get you ready for the trails as soon as the snow flies?

WINTER 2021 – 2022 UPDATE – Physical Training Program for Adults aged 50+

The 2018 – 2019 nordic season was an exciting one for the Fernie Nordic Society as it was the first season offering the 50+ Training Group. Unfortunately it was put on hold during the 2020-2021 season. But we are BACK!!

Primary focus

The main goal of the 50+ Training Group is to stay active and provide skills to increase skiing efficiency in a social group setting. The training program encourages group participation to help motivate people through a social and friendly setting. We also encourage the members to enter some fun races in the Kootenays as a way to motivate your training participation. While it is encouraged, it is not mandatory to attend any races.

Training Program

This season several participants are also doing some weekly physical training under the supervision of trainer Blair Crosby of Fernie Fitness.

Also planned are ski lessons on snow when the season starts. More details to come later as planning gets confirmed.
