TIPS FOR USING STRAVA:
To find the four routes for the Silk Trail Slide, look for the ‘Events’ in the Fernie Alpine Resort club page on Strava.
If you click on ‘view the route’ from the event, you have an option on the bottom left of the screen to “use route”. This will automatically take you to the recording feature with the route marked out. This makes it really easy to follow the correct route.
Make sure you start and end your Strava at the start of the route – end of Double Creek, the start of Silk Trails (look for the sign)
Strava leaderboards:
We will be using the Strava Segments listed on each Strava event as our leaderboards. Make sure you include in your activity comments whether you were Skate Skiing or Classic Cross Country.
Don’t have Stava?
You can definitely still participate. The routes are posted below, and you can track your run on your own timing device. To collect your medal, show your timing device at Guest Services.
