I tried mountain biking for the first time in September 2014 at Fernie. It was great and we had a lot of fun. There are a lot of trail from green to black. Waiting time at the chair lift is really short. I wish I will be able to return there.

Over the past month, I've skied 7 days at Fernie. This winter, the snow has been scant over all this area so the champagne powder was absent. However, Fernie has an amazing variety of terrain with lots of green, blue and black runs. When we were there, the snow was packed and groomed in the lower runs with some fresh... More

Spent 10 days with friend in their house - a great area and the snow (when it finally came December 23) was great. There was no waitingtime for the lifts, a great deal of different sloapes for all levels of skiexperience - just great. The only bad thing - very expensive, even for us (norwegians - we are used to... More

After visiting the Toronto Snow Show last October, we decided to visit Fernie for our annual "Boys Ski Trip". Last week, eleven of us made our way to Fernie, an easy 3.5 hour drive from Calgary. With 5 bowls, approximately 2,500 acres of skiable terrain and a 3,500 foot vertical, we weren't disappointed! Even though it was early season, there... More

Good variety of terrain. It was early season, they had not had the usual amount of snow by this time. But for those who are from the east, it's well worth the trip.

Overall this resort is good for kids BUT, the bunny hill lift is brutal for new snowboarders. They checked tickets at the Mighty Moose (bunny hill) one day which I thought was pretty funny. That lift is so bad it should be free.

I happened to be here on a freezing day but when it snows this resort would have outrageous skiing! Liked the potential!

My family went skiing over the New Year's Eve weekend and had a blast. We knew coming in this isn't the optimal time for big powder, but the weather man didn't disappoint! Our group has an array of different levels of skiing from greens to back country and Fernie had a enough to keep all us entertained for four days.... More

Good accommodation, close to the ski hill and lots of amenities. No cleaning offered though for a 11 day stay, for 4 people. Noise may bother some from the jacuzzi. Wonderful spa available.

If you are a real skier you will love this resort. Lots of green runs for the beginners, tons of trees and steep slopes for the experts. Good ski school. Excellent snow. Stay on the hill if you can. We like snow creek lodge. Nothing much at all at the base of the hill. Nothing for non-skiers to do.
