We are early 20s but not looking to send it with a bunch of college kids and get rowdy. Basically just looking for a chill spot to stay that is not extremely expensive (but not a dive either) and has a younger demographic. Neither of us have shredded in the states before so we are really looking forward to it and hope it'll be a sick experience.
Any other tips or advice from locals or those who have been there about lines and the best spots to ride are more than welcome as well! We are both fairly advanced riders and are looking to hit some sweet spots outside of the groomers and park.
Fernie has a hostel that is crazy cheap, looks pretty nice actually as well. Never been there but it's called the raging elk hostel if you wanna check it out. Could probably hit castle from there as well.
