Fernie alpine resort is an incredible summer destination. There is down hill biking and hiking and other outdoor activities. He took the timber chairlift up to the alpine hikine. That was a rewarding experience. I have hiked 7 mountains so far this summer and this was by far the best. Challenging terrain with breath taking vistas. The high light of... More

Tons of things to do at Fernie besides skiing. We love it in the summer for biking, hiking, fishing etc. The aerial park is super fun, but it is not for anyone who has a fear of heights. The guides were great for teaching and emphasizing safety of clipping in and out. Highly recommend. We also took the ski lift... More

We stayed on hill for the long weekend hoping to do some mountain biking, experience the aerials and enjoy the scenery. At every turn we were met with rude customer service personnel, in particular from one individual who won't wear a name tag. The line up to pay for biking and rentals were not marked out, leading to several people... More

Rented bikes and they aren't cheap but they are typically good quality and stand up better than my all mountain. Unfortunately they have gone to some new style brake disc pads that make terrible noise. We took them back and they said live with it as the year are aware of the noise but they last longer and save the... More

I have snowboarded this hill for many many years. I have rarely been disapointed in the powder (except for the winter of 2014/2015). Great hill, and the people working there are always awesome!

The resort is fabulous. We took the lift up the mountain and walked the Lost Boys trail. Beautiful scenery. The trails are safe and fun.

summertime fun at the aerial park and zip line. Fernie is not only for wintertime fun. priced right for a 3 hour adventure high in the tree tops. Also went on the chair lift for a short hike up high. lots of fun.

World class skiing. Close to town. World class mountain biking. One of the best skiing towns I have ever been in. Quaint heritage downtown, with all the comforts on the hill. Great to explore with the family, though most runs are harder, there are some easier ones for the little ones. My kids all started on this hill, when they... More

I came to visit Fernie Alpine Resort with a friend from Ontario and we got to experience the Aerial park. It was the perfect day for it; really warm but in the trees it was perfect. The course was a lot more intense than I had imagined! As someone who has a mild fear of heights, I was a bit... More

My 11 yr. old son gave this venue 11 out of 10 stars and we would do this again. The instruction was easily followed and the difficulty increased as one progressed through the park.
