Home is where the heart is, and resorts are where the rest of the free-wheeling, devil-may-care organs hang out. Reunite long-lost body parts with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a one-night stay for a family of up to four people and a full-day family mountain-biking pass at Wolf's Den Lodge, located at the base of Fernie Alpine Resort near Fernie (up to a $175.95 total value).
Wolf's Den Lodge swaddles mountain bikers and outdoor adventurers in comfortable accommodations offering bike in/bike out access into the Elk Valley. Rooms ($86 average daily rate) sleep two adults and up to two children younger than 17 years old and are equipped with cable, a coffee maker, and a refrigerator. Larger families or those prone to accumulating hitchhikers can obtain an extra room for $81 a night when booking. The full-day family mountain-biking pass (a $89.95 value) grants passage to Fernie's more than 35 mountain bike trails, thrilling pedal pushers of all levels. Trails ranging from easy to difficult include the amiable smoothness of Hobbits Trail and a course dubbed Aggravated Assault, so called for its series of skinnies and ladders through the homes of highly territorial squirrels.
Guests travelling sans mountain bikes may rent full-suspension downhill models ($95 including arm/leg pads and helmet). After a day on the trails, weary bodies can rejuvenate in the two indoor jacuzzis or head into town for dining or a game of pin the tail on the park ranger.
