Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie Alpine Resort is famous for its excellent natural snow conditions. Snow falls at the end of November and remains fine into April. The annual average snowfall here is about 875 cm (29 feet).

Over a hundred featured trails, five alpine bowls and acres of tree skiing will enhance your ski abilities. If you are an expert skier, the slopes here will not disappoint you, as you will drop off ridges, check out chutes or make first tracks on the chaste steep.

All 5 bowls cater terrain that will attract more experienced skiers to try off-piste and glade skiing. The lower mountain with wide open slopes and zigzag trails brings pleasure to beginners.

Snowboarders can try out the all-terrain park, hit the half-pipe and ride the many natural gullies.

You may opt for numerous new on-mountain condominium lodges. Each of them caters stunning slope-side sceneries and is located in the proximity to a lift or true ski-in/ski-out convenience and luxury. You may also rent the private chalet in the Timberline and Highline Estates subdivisions, with more lodgings nearby in the City of Fernie, only 5 km (3 miles) away. 

Visit Fernie Alpine Resort and you’ll visit a different world. Crowds and glamour are out of here as you enter the land of friendly people, big snow banks, and quiet mountain landscape. Here you will meet the sensible locals who are proud to live in the valley.

As you may want to try out different adventure activities, the guest services department now provides many of them for the whole family to relish. You may relish horse-drawn sleigh rides, dog sledding, snowmobile tours, torchlight run & barbecue, in addition to activity nights for the kids. Also, you are always invited to take a terrific tour with the Mountain Hosts catered twice daily all through the season.

Fernie Alpine Resort is nested in the southeast corner of the British Columbia Rockies on Crownest Highway #3, in about 60 km (40 miles) west of the Alberta border and 60 km (40 miles) north of the U.S. border.
