NE Slidepath on Fernie Mountain

Climbed up Heiko’s Fernie Mountain Trail on Friday and skied down the slide path on the NE flank of Fernie Mountain. Access is from Alpine Trails condo land (old gravel pit). Park at the locked gate at the end of the public road and walk up to Fairy Creek access road. Fernie Mountain Trail starts about 50 meters past the junction and is signed. Snow shoers frequently use the trail so it is well broken in until you reach the east ridge of Fernie Mountain. Climbing this ridge is a steep, safe route with nicely spaced fir and cedar trees.
