UPDATED for 2016-2017 !!
The Fernie Nordic Society and its volunteers aim to promote crosscountry skiing as a healthy winter activity for all ages.

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.
The membership options for the 2016-17 season are as follows
$160 Family (2 adults + 2 children), $19 per additional child)

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 CCBC standards. The enrollment into the program is limited by the number of coaches, so enroll early and/or consider becoming a coach. Please use either option 2 or 3 under Membership section above for registration. See the Kids Lessons page on this site for more details.
Ski Gear Rental
The Fernie Nordic Society has a limited number of set of skis, boots and poles available for rent for a small cost to the young skiers enrolled in our SDP program only. A fitting session will be scheduled later in the fall and a skier will take the gear home for the winter. See the details on the membership form.
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 fees include the membership fee. Do not forget to fill the Racer Registration Details form available below.
