Logging started in Ridgemont this week

October 6, 2015 - 09:53
http://ferniefix.com/article/community/jemi-fibre-logging-ridgemont-octo...   As part of Jemi Fibre's five to ten year plan of logging 300-400,000 cubic metres of land per year, popular bike trails in Ridgemont will be affected. The Fernie Trails Alliance has issued a warning to all recreationalists using the trails this fall to stay clear of Ridgemont trails running between Branch B and Big Money/Loose Change on Ridgemont Road. The trails that will be logged around are Kush and Kushiest above the Ridgemont haul road.The lowest part of Watering Hole will also be in the operations area. Below Ridgemont Road trails in or near the logging operations will be Kushier, Little ChainRing, TR3 and the Coal Discovery Trail. The FTA will have work parties in the late fall and early spring to clean up the trails after the logging is completed.   Take the time to enjoy these trails in their glory before they are forever changed by logging, and consider volunteering your time this fall and next spring to assist in their rehabilitation. Thank you to the Fernie Trails Alliance for its continual hard work and dedication to the trails, and for effectively communicating these events. www.fernietrailsalliance.com

Volunteer Opportunities Coming UP!

August 25, 2015 - 09:36
Volunteer Opportunities Coming Up! 
  We are looking for help with Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam on Saturday September 5th. If you can spare any number of hours on this day or evening please contact info@bikefernie.ca.  On August 29th and 30th we have our annual Legendary Summer BC Cup Downhill race at the ski hill and we are currently looking for volunteers to be course marshals along the downhill course. Volunteers would be needed from approx 8:30am - 4:30pm each day. The positions they will be fulfilling are as course marshalls along the downhill race course. No special skills are needed for this position as volunteers basically act as our "eyes" along the course and communicate to our officials and first aid crew if there are any issues. Marshalls do not have to be bikers as we will shuttle everyone into position along the course. It's not a physically demanding job but does require volunteers to be outside for the day. Any volunteers provided from us will help our club raise money for the BMX park building!! On top of helping the club raise money....all volunteers also get their own personal perks including being up close to all the race action, volunteer lunch, event t-shirt and all volunteers are entered into our daily volunteer door prize draws (and we always have sweet draw prizes including awesome gear, gift certificates etc). If you are able to help please contact Jeni at events@skifernie.com.

What do you think about these options for Highroller this year?

August 19, 2015 - 09:04
Choices Totally new idea: Scavenger hunt (trails will remain a mystery for participants) Totally old idea: usual trails involving Castle, Ridgemont, Prov Park Kinda new idea: find some way to make it a different route, but otherwise same format Add in a "low roller" option, same number of trails, but easier choices.
