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

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.
