Last weekend, the Canadian Ladies World Cup ski team chose Fernie for a mountain biking camp.

Fernie is known for the great snow in winter but also for the epic mountain biking, according to the group.

Marie Michelle Gagnon and Erin Mielzynski participated in Vancouver 2010, have victories on the World Cup Ski circuit and  are dedicating themselves to Sochi ( they had test events in Sochi in February 2012).
