Grown-up toys at Ghostrider Motorsports

From snowmobiles and side-by-sides, to motorcycles and atv’s, Ghostrider Motorsports has grown-up toys for every season.

Ghostrider Motorsports has been supplying Fernie residents and visitors with all the equipment and gear they need to enjoy the area’s landscape for over 12 years. From snowmobiles and side-by-sides, to motorcycles and atv’s, they’ve got grown-up toys for every season.

Owner and Operator, Paul Kramer, said it was his passion for the outdoors that inspired him to start dealing snowmobiles out of his tire shop back in 1995. “At the time we were looking for more of a filler in the wintertime. It was an automotive repair facility when I started with the Arctic Cat business, and then it just snowballed from there,” Kramer said. “I love snowmobiling, I love getting on my street bike, I like enjoying those types of toys.”

Fast forward to today, the shop and showroom has moved to East Fernie’s industrial area, and is an authorized Arctic Cat, Honda, and Yamaha dealer, focused on selling and servicing outdoor recreational equipment.

As the company has grown, Ghostrider Motorsports now employs seven full-time local employees. As a long-time Fernie resident, Kramer understands how important the locals are to his business. “When you have a business in Fernie you have to be community oriented,” remarked Kramer. “I think it’s a plus, especially if you donate to all the different causes that are going on, the different programs like Griz Days, it helps. I think if you involve yourself in the community, you will get the community’s support, and that’s what we do.”

Kramer added, “We get great support from Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford, all of the Elk Valley, and we do have a lot of Alberta customers that recreate here in the wintertime. One thing that we’re very fortunate is it’s a destination area. Fernie has the ski hill to draw to, so we have a lot of tourism type things in the winter, and that really helps the business for sure.”

Ghostrider Motorsports is now in transition mode, as the staff is busy switching out bikes and atv’s for snowmobiles and sleds. Winter is just around the corner and the local sledders are already starting to stop in to check out what the showroom has to offer for the upcoming snow season.
