Had a fabulous 3 days on the Fernie Alpine Resort hills. The resort is following strict Covid procedures and we felt very safe on the hill. The conditions for skiing and boarding were excellent supported by great weather. Excellent experience.

Worst mountain I’ve been too
Jan 2021 • Couples
Lift workers were extremely rude and ignorant. My experience at the hill was terrible. The mountain was so icy it was unrideable, and the staff is extremely disrespectful.

Awesome trip
Aug 2020 • Couples
Went here for a biking trip. They followed social distancing protocols. They had friendly staff who looked like they enjoyed their job. They had a well maintained facility. They had a first aid station, a restaurant where you can eat nearby, clean washrooms, ample parking space, and a beautiful scenery of the mountains and valley. They have bike rentals. We had friends who preferred not to bike, and they also had hiking routes for them! We would definitely go back! It’s worth the trip!

Beautiful Resort
Jul 2020
Visited the resort in July . planning to do some hiking, but unfortunately only one chair lift was open, was a little expensive and far away from the trail I was planning to do. Ended up just walking around, not hiking at all.

Fernie can cater for everyone!
Mar 2020
We're a couple of 'Motoring/Travel Journalists', catering for German and Australian media. As you would expect we ski every year around the world (for 26 years) and usually only make repeat visits if we really like a place. Fernie is listed in our top 6 in the world and our number one in Canada, although we have another couple of places we like, namely Apex and Revelstoke. Yes, we like the steep and deep, but Fernie is a resort able to cater for all tastes and all skiing abilities. This year was our 8th visit to this mountain and again, we where not disappointed. Although we had little new snow for the 5 days, all groom-able runs where perfectly prepared, even some of the steeper ones. Here and there we could find some untracked runs of about 30cm new white bliss, especially close to trees. This year the emphasis was on speed and carving, which was so much fun and a whole lot different from what we experienced days earlier at Revelstoke. Why do we like Fernie? It offers a lot of skiing variety including some magnificent ski-in, ski-out facilities, like for instance the Lizard Creek Lodge with a chair-lift only 40m from the front door. As mentioned earlier, Fernie has something for every standard of skiing. A lot of runs are protected by trees, great when the weather gets nasty and visibility bad. The drive to the town of Fernie takes only 15 Minutes and on offer are great eateries, shops, drinking holes and entertainment. Fernie is well worth a visit with the possibility to fall into love with the place and . . .

Ursula made my weekend
Mar 2020 • Friends
My ski trip started with having a shocker (bank decided to block me out and it all spiralled from there)
Anyway when proceeding to buy tickets an amazing human being with the name of Ursula saved me, put my trip back on track and just cannot explain how much of a wonderful human being she was.
Thank you so much to Ursula from the girl having a nightmare in the pink ski suit!!
Words cannot describe the kindness of this woman!
The hill was awesome too!

Challenging resort
Feb 2020 • Friends
Have skied a number of Canadian resorts but found Fernie challenging. Quite steep and not big on grooming. However lovely light snow so when conditions are right it’s great.

Fun hill, Terrible Signage
Feb 2020 • Friends
Came with friends (3 couples, 1 single, 35-40s, one 3 yr old) for an extended weekend over the BC long weekend. No new snow, but the runs were nicely groomed. Only really negative is that the signage on the hill is terrible. As someone who doesn’t know the terrain, this made things really difficult. A constant fear of leading my friend down a hill way beyond her comfort level is never a relaxing time.

However, if they fixed this, I’d recommend the hill, especially for groups with varied ski skill sets. There are lots of options for every level, and everyone was happy with the different rubs they were able to do each day.
