Fernie, BC – The Coastal Crew led by pro mountain bike rider, Mike Hopkins, stopped by Fernie Alpine Resort last summer for some wicked riding. “Mike Hopkins, Scott Pro Rider and the Coastal Crew are just incredibly talented riders and we were stoked to have them visit Fernie Alpine Resort and tell us what they thought of the riding available” says Matt Mosteller. “These guys are some of the best mountain bike pros in the world and they really put Fernie Alpine Resort to the test” added Mosteller.
Mike and the Coastal Crew summed Fernie up with these words, “Fernie is the premier bike park of the most infamous North American mountain range: The Rockies. The Trails that string their sinuous selves around the mountain’s peaks vary in every imaginable category. There are a collection of rocky, steep, technical trails that feed into strips of forested loam and finish with wide open berms and jumps, which are quite possibly the most decadent of mountain biking’s many joys. It is an irrefutable truth that Fernie is a DH and Free Ride Heaven.”
Summer Operations at Fernie Alpine Resort are set to open on June 25th, 2011.
