Nine runs with fresh powder on every run. The powder was up to 3 feet deep, and there was good food while riding back up in the snow cat. The guides were very experienced, made sure that all riders had a turn at the front of the group, and they were there to help when we got stuck in deep... More

My wife and I are back from a 3 day ski trip in Fernie. We skied 2 days with FWA. First day was not perfect not by lack of work or service by the staff but by lack of fresh snow. Mother Nature cooperated and gave us heavenly conditions. The FWA team was as excited as we were and brought... More

Our family had so much fun on the afternoon raft trip that we had to book again for the white water experience the next day! Great crew, excellent equipment, beautiful location through the canyons and over waterfalls. The cliff jumping was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend!

We booked 2 days cat skiing with FWA as a group of 4 in February 2013. We were happy to see that the Fernie area still received fresh snow each night, despite the poor snow conditions elsewhere close by in BC. Our guides and cat drivers were knowledgable and eager to get us to the best snow. They were able... More

Absolutely loved my day cat skiing and the guides were knowledgable and helpful. There were no standards for the trips (i.e beginner or advanced) but the guides did their best to cater for everyone and were wonderful.

The guides were really good, the cats were well set up and the skiing was great. The problem is that just down the road is Island Lake where the catskiing is supposed to be much better...but at a price. Quite a few of the runs were very tight trees but some were more open where you could really get a... More

I am told the snow and the skiing are great. For non-skiers, it is very difficult to find a place to sit and read other than go back to your car.
