Schedule of Events

Learning
& Connecting

Mastermind Adventures features plenty of learning and inspiration - both structured (with scheduled talks and fireside chats) and informal (sharing drinks, challenges and laughs with your peers).

The mountain biking and other adventures will typically start around 9 or 10 am and wrap up by 4 or 5 o'clock, with plenty of time before and after for both structured and spontaneous learning and other activities, and a healthy dose of magic.

ADVENTURE

Epic Mountain Biking
(& Other Adventures)

Adventure is centre stage at MMA 2017! Most of the adventuring will be done on mountain bike (Fernie is one of North America's premier mountain bike towns), but there will be off-bike adventures as well.

With 4 experienced local guides, we'll be splitting up into two groups for the mountain biking - one beginner/intermediate, one advanced/expert - with terrain chosen to suit each group's ability.


 

AN INCREDIBLE TRAIL NETWORK

Fernie boasts one of the best mountain bike networks in North America, with over 100 trails within minutes of downtown, all easily accessibly from our base at Island Lake Lodge.

AWARD-WINNING GUIDES

Guiding services are provided by Sacred Rides, the "#1 Mountain Bike Tour Company on Earth" as ranked by both National Geographc Adventure and Outside magazines.

Fernie was my home for 10 incredible years, and Island Lake Lodge is one of my favourite places in Fernie and one the most beautiful places on Earth. I can’t wait to show it you!
