Fernie Gumball

Our newest event! Teams (four riders per team) will have six hours to find
checkpoints and complete a variety of skills challenges to earn points. The
event involves navigation, strategy, skill, great costumes, and a bit of luck to
win! The course will be set up over several hundred acres of varying terrain
accessible from our maintained trail network and warming shelters. Shorter,
family-friendly course will also be available.

Sled Drags

Undoubtedly one of Fernie’s loudest
and most popular winter events, the
snowmobile drag races send riders on
their modified sleds down a prepared
race track. Riders with the fastest times
in various heat categories win cold
hard cash! Draw for the FSA Arctic Cat
z120 snowmobile fundraiser raffle to
take place during the races (tickets
available at Ghostrider Motorsports
or trailheads during the season, $20
each).

FSA Corporate Partners Ride

Special group ride to thank our Corporate Partners and showcase FSA trails and facilities to stakeholders.
