Heart rates rise on Fernie’s new Aerial Playground

Fernie Alpine Resort boasts the largest mountain bike park in the Rocky Mountains, but this year the resort’s new Aerial Playground and Rippin’ Zipline is also taking visitors by storm. An exhilarating leap of faith is needed to zip through a rope course that is 18 metres (60 feet) above the ground. Then there’s the suspended, gravity-defying climbing walls, walk-the-plank and high-wire acts, all designed to raise heart rates. (http://www.skifernie.com)
