Grooming Report

Sunday, December 9, 2018 - 08:54


Many skiers are enjoying the trails at the Nordic Centre already. Updates from areas other than the Nordic Centre and the Fernie Golf Course are subject to feedback from skiers and groomers of those trails. Use hashtag #fernienordic to report anything related to trails and to wildlife.

The snowcat just purchased by the club is now at the Nordic Centre. Our Welcome Home fundraiser campaign is still on at

Elk Valley Nordic Centre
Most of the trail network was groomed by the snowcat on Friday afternoon. Trails are hard and icy in places. No trackset until we get more snow. The Cedar loop is not currently skiable. Watch for deep channels across the trail on Galloway loop. More snowmobile grooming is planned for Sunday morning.
Golf Course
The Golf Course is not yet open to skiers. The management of the Golf Course will alert us when the trails are ready.

Other locations where one can ski in the Fernie area are listed below. Please note that these trails are operated by other organizations.
Fernie Alpine Resort
Trails appear to be open according to the FAR report. Grooming is listed done for classic only with a track set. Waiting for further details.
Island Lake Resort
Will update as soon as some info is available.
One skier has reported that the trails are open but the snow cover is thin. Waiting for further updates.
