GearHub Sports has been Fernie's favourite sports store since opening in 2010. The local community has consistently voted this shop Fernie's "Best place to purchase Winter and Summer Gear" and in 2018 GearHub was voted the #2 Ski shop in Canada in FreeSkier Magazine's inaugural "Top Shop" contest.
GearHub offers a wide selection of sporting goods, rentals and repair services. It's also the only place in Fernie that offers a sporting goods consignment program, which means there are always great deals on used gear to be found as well.
This shop is known for having friendly, knowledgeable staff and a laid back vibe. They offer group rides seasonally (mountain bikes in the summer and fatbiking in the winter) that are open to any level. This dynamic shop is sure to get you stoked to get outside!
Description of Store or Stores
GearHub began as a shared dream between Mark Hall and Jonathan Levesque - two outdoor enthusiasts living in Fernie, BC. In May 2010 they purchased a disused garage just off of Fernie's historic downtown 2nd Ave strip. Jon and Mark spent the summer of 2010 putting in long hours of hard work with their family and friends to convert the garage into the outdoor store they had dreamed about. By September 2nd, 2010, the store was ready to open its doors for the first time. GearHub quickly flourished in the community, winning awards like "Best of Fernie" and the Fernie Chamber of Commerce's Business Excellence Award for "Outstanding Customer Service" and for "New Business of the Year" within the first year of opening!
Deeply involved in the local Fernie community the consignment program alone has put over a million dollars back into the local community through re-sale of used gear and equipment. GearHub is proud to sponsor a wide variety of local events, athletes and initiatives. Among them are the FIRE adaptive ski program that regularly gets their equipment serviced at GearHub, and the local hockey team the Fernie Ghostriders, who go to GearHub for all their skate sharpening needs. Notably, GearHub is a top-tier supporter of the local Fernie Trail Association's Fernie Mountain Bike Club. All of the local fundraising events that support the local trails also receive support from GearHub, whether that's in the form of donations or providing prizing for events. They also work with the Elk River Alliance and helps support their environmental initiatives.
