Bike Trails, Golf Tales and Mommy Dearest!

Well, my spring training is still in full swing! Swing? Why yes….my first round of golf last weekend at St. Eugene Golf Resort was so much fun but perhaps I should have gone to the driving range prior to the first tee box! Oh well, lots of time for that especially as Fernie Golf and Country Club is opening today, Wednesday May 9th! I love golf in Fernie but mainly the social side of it and the magnificent 360 degree views you are treated to as you make your way along the beautiful 18 hole championship course which, when walking, is great exercise.

Mountain biking in Fernie is huge! Just ask some of the diehards hitting the single track trails this weekend….mud? The more the better! I even had mud after Sunday’s ride…okay perhaps it was a couple of drops from a puddle on the road, but I felt pretty hardcore! If you’re not quite ready to venture onto the single tracks, some of which are still clinging to wintery conditions, why not go for distance, spinning and cardio? There are some awesome back roads that are in perfect shape…..including Morrissey to Elko which adds up to about 30kms round trip. We even saw our first black bear of the season!

After a good ride or a less than stellar round of golf that convinces me I would never have made the LPGA, my first thought is….c’mon body…don’t seize up! That’s when I start dreaming about being pampered. With Mother’s Day swiftly approaching, all us Moms are thinking about our special day. Gentlemen…how about sending us on a 2 night girl’s getaway where our accommodation is a luxury suite with our own private hot tub, a 2 hour spa package and a complimentary bottle of wine? We deserve it!


Love Fernie in the Spring Time!
