Join a select group of 16  audacious entrepreneurs at spectacular Island Lake Lodge - in the Canadian Rockies just outside of Fernie, British Columbia - from Sep. 15-19, 2018 for an incredible five-day experience that's equal parts challenge, adventure, learning, and awesome.

What's in store? Four days of mountain activities, four evenings of curated learning and connection, incredible meals, a lifetime of memories and friendships, and a big dose of the unexpected.

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 am and wrap up by 4 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 Adventures

Adventure is centre stage at MMA Island Lake! With a mix of spectacular hiking, mountain biking (both beginner and intermediate/advanced level), rafting and other activities, your Instagram account will be busy!

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.

Fernie sits in one of the most spectacular locations in the Canadian Rockies, and boasts miles and miles of hiking trails and one of the best mountain bike networks in North America, all easily accessible 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 Geographic 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!
