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

Lots of improvements and much better access to the hill. Still a hidden gem in Canadian skiing locations. Even end of season, the runs were good.

We were in Fernie at the beginning of April this year (Edmonton Public School Spring Break). We were fortunate to have scored a condo right on the hill (first time). The experience of staying on the hill was great, definitely want to do this again. Having said all of that, I have nothing but praise for the staff of the... More

We loved our 2 weeks skiing in Fernie this February. Fantastic ski school, quiet slopes, loads of skiing for everyone and lots of fresh powder. Lunch at the Lost Boys followed by Falling Star - brilliant.

Fernie Alpine Resort is our favourite place to snowboard in the winter. We've been here many times and have always had a wonderful time. The staff is great and very helpful, and if you get there after a good dump of snow, the boarding is excellent.

Fernie is addictive, many people you meet who came for 2 weeks stayed for years. The mountain is a brilliant blend of tree lined pistes and really challenging back country powder hounds delight.The resort though is let down by it's management who have all the $ charges of a world class resort like Whistler but lack the customer care and...

Five feet of snow during the week that we were there. On a Thursday morning after 12 inches of fresh powder, we were 5 minutes late getting to the lift, and the group waiting for first lift up had already dissipated by the time we got there. Fresh turns of up to waist-deep powder every day. Friendly mountain hosts provided... More

The hill has something for all ski levels. I have been skiing at this mountain for 27 years and it keeps getting better. I have to drive by two other ski hills to get here and am never disappointed by Fernie.
