THE RESORT

Fernie is known for it's legendary Powder. Located in the spectacular Canadian Rockies in British Columbia, Fernie Alpine Resort is a world-class, destination ski resort with an authentic ski town atmosphere and tonnes of history including the legends of the Griz, Ghostrider, & Sasquatch - all believed to live there. With an annual snowfall of over 29ft, varied terrain for all abilities featuring the most bowls in North America with 5 unique bowls over 2,504 acres, and a variety of lodging options from ski-in/ski-out chalets to 5-star hotels; your experience is only limited by your sense of adventure.

 

THE SKIING

An average of twenty-nine feet of light, feathery powder falls here every winter, covering Fernie's legendary super steeps and creating extreme skiing that is the stuff of dreams. Fernie is by no means only for the elite - novice and intermediate riders will love the big, wide open runs that are groomed nightly. The cruising doesn't get any softer or smoother.
