Rémy must have seen our episode of 72 Hours from Fernie B.C., or how else would he have known to go there?
Fernie is located in the eastern part of the province, and is home to some incredible alpine riding—nearly all of which is accessible right from town. In true Rémy fashion, he sought out the baddest of them all—a trail called Dirt Diggler. Dropping off Morrissey Ridge and descending 3,600 feet to the valley in about 4 miles, Dirt Diggler has plenty of gnarly steep sections mixed in with amazing ridgeline ribbons and narrow single track sidehill action. The trail has it all, but you’ll need some serious skills to get through unscathed.
Watch Rémy follow Derek Bird, the man who built Dirt Diggler, as he discovers his new favorite trail.
