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

Multiple ski lifts and lots of different skill level skiing - summer limited to hiking and Mountain biking. Staff is friendly, place is clean and well maintained.

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

Skiing in the resort the very last days of the season. The area & vertical is excellent. I wash´t so lucky with snow conditions. Varm, a bit of rain. It was quite clear that it was season ending = the service from resort staff was sloppy.

Powder. Powder, Powder, Just WOW!!! Fernie Alpine resort has to be skied to be believed. Reading and hearing about it simply does not do it justice. Do yourself a favour next winter. Spend the extra time required to travel from Banff or Calgary down to Fernie for a completely different ski holiday. You will not be disappointed. As a bonus... More

This is almost always the best skiing in Canada, with consistently excellent conditions...but only go if you like lots of snow, and powder is often available at your discretion. You can also ski groomers, glades, bowls and incredible vertical. I grew up skiing in the Alberta Rockies but was not aware that the best skiing was close by (in Fernie).... More

Fernie is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. The resort is open in the winter for skiing and snowboarding. With copious amounts of snow and usually warm weather makes the area comfortable and exciting. There are 10 lifts and a variety of runs that suit all ski levels. For us, the daycare is amazing. They have so many options... More
