The best fun I have ever had. Literally. I spent every day here for a full season and I still never managed to explore all of the nooks and crannies of this huge resort. The snows perfect. The people are great. It gets more stunning the higher you go. Go.

Had a great time in this resort , deep powder everyday , fresh snow daily and challenging enough runs to keep me going for the 2weeks . Took the day trip to Kimberly and found it good fun. The hotels and restaurants on the mountain have good choice of food and are reasonably priced .

My Second ski trip to Fernie, and experienced consistent excellent. Were fortunate to experience a dump of fresh powder overnight that really sweetened the skiing experience. The lifts are fast and organized, the tea shop on the hill is a great place to grab a hot beverage or a cold one. Make sure you understand the map before hitting the... More

As a Birthday present i got to do the aerial park at Fernie Alpine Resort this summer. The guide was extremely helpful and patient with the younger elements in the group. The park caters from 7 years and upwards and can be as challenging as you want it with a number of options depending on your fear factor. ! there... More

I have gone back to this resort many times since my first visit in 1995. Endless days of skiing black and double black runs, tree chutes, open meadows and secret powder stashes that only the locals know about. Fernie does not disappoint. Some of the best powder skiing I have ever had in my 40+ years of skiing. The locals... More

Spent the August long weekend in summer. There was absolutely no trace of snow anywhere. It was tough to believe that people were skiing only two months back there.! The staff was friendly and were trying to accommodate our requests to the best of their abilities. We stayed at cornerstone lodge and the place was decent. The lifts to the... More

The staff at the resort was very friendly and helpful everywhere we went! We caught the ski lift up for a beautiful view on a nice summer day, and were able to enjoy some drinks and the Lost Boys cafe before our hike. Great scenery everywhere!

Getting to the mountain was a piece of cake. It had been snowing through the day and through the week, but the road up to the resort was clear and safe to drive on. All the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The rental shop was quick with a great selection. Great number of high speed lifts and the lines moved... More

Just came back from Mountain Biking at Fernie. Besides the rain, a great resort to ride. The staff is friendly and they opened up a couple new trails this year. My only wish is that they had more varied terrain off the Timber Chair. My buddy is fairly new and being able to use the high speed quad would've been... More
