This mountain was nice and steep making it a great place to board in the trees. We had a great time here with the mountain almost to ourselves. We saw around ten people a DAY max. Unfortunately we missed the snow so didn't get great conditions. Although it was the first time we have seen a moose in the wild... More

Appreciate your wonderful input! Kudos to Mother Nature for great snow and like your note that the mountain is great for all levels. We sometimes get too caught up in the amazing variety of expert terrain but you are so right that there is lots of terrain perfectly suited to beginners and intermediates thanks again! More

$75 for a room on the hill til end of January. We stayed there in December just before Xmas and it was great. Hill was quiet but we ate at the Grizz, which had a cheap special and cheap beer. Breakfast at Kelsey's very good as well. Not sure it gets any better. Why don't more people ski in December?... More

My 17 year old son and I spent two weeks here. The skiing was great and catered for all levels of skiier/ boarder. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment in Juniper Lodge which was great value. Okay we are used to Sydney accommodation prices. It was easy to get to and from the township of Fernie by shuttle bus.... More

We have skied all around the world yet Fernie,BC has a place in our heart. The guaranteed fresh snow and groomed pistes make it hard to leave without having another trip back booked already. The views are spectacular!
