Below you will find all the details you need to know about being on the Dirtbag package. This page will continually get updated as we draw closer to the event




Everyone needs to arrive in PANORAMA SKI RESORT on Sunday July 7th.  Registration will be at the Resort from 1pm - 6pm. 

There is a MANDATORY rider briefing at Approx 7.45pm (Pano Main Lodge where other riders are having dinner).


Arrival Day July 7th: Panorama Ski Resort

Day 1 - July 8th:

  • Shuttles: No Shuttle needed - start and finish at the resort

  • Camping: There are no campgrounds at Panorama, but you can stay in the lower parking lot or if you travel a few km's down the gravel road there are some pull outs near the river. If you buddy up with someone on the all inclusive, you can get them to let you into the Pools at the resort where there are hot tubs and shower facilities. You just need one of their room keys to open the door to get in ....but shhhh, don't tell anyone I told you this!


Day 2 - July 9th:

  • Shuttles: No Shuttle needed - start and finish at the resort

  • Camping: Same as day 1 OR you can choose to travel to Kimberley after you are done racing, as we are racing there the next day 


Day 3 - July 10th: 

  • Shuttles: If you can, park a car in downtown in the main parking lot or somewhere near by, and then shuttle up to the Ski Resort. As we start at the resort but finish in town. Worse case its about a 3km / 20 min pedal back up to vehicle if you need to do it that way

  • Camping: The main campground is the Kimberley Riverside Campground. The hub where the rest of the racers will be staying are in condo's / townhouses up at Kimberley Ski Resort. OR can choose to head to Fernie after you are done race, as we are racing there the next day


Day 4 - July 11th:

  • Shuttles: We will be starting about 20mins drive down an access road from Fernie Town. Team up with some others on the Dirtbag riders (you should have made friends by now) and leave a car in downtown Fernie and carpool to the start. We finish in downtown Fernie, so you will have a vehicle there to go retrieve your vehicle from the start location when you are done racing. Exact locations and maps sent out during the event

  • Camping: There is the Mount Fernie Provincial Park Campground - book early as this campground always fills up, but it's the closer one to our base (Fernie Ski Resort). The other option is the newer Fernie RV Resort.  

  • Alternatively I believe its free to camp in the day lot at Fernie Ski Resort (where the hub of the event and the all inclusive riders are staying)

  • You will want to book from Day 4 until departure day as we are based in Fernie for the rest of the days


Day 5 - July 12th:

  • Shuttles: We do a day trip today about 50mins drive from Fernie, so you drive to the location and park and the start and finish location are in the same area

  • Camping: Still in Fernie


Day 6 - July 13th:

  • Shuttles: Start and Finish at Fernie Ski Resort

  • Camping: Still in Fernie
