If renting prepare to wait, the staff is very slow and have to push a million buttons on computer. 45min to rent the last bike in the place. Staff is friendly but they aren't set up for success with their systems and forms. Guy in front on me was buying a part for his bike and it wouldn't scan so... More

We had not been to Fernie before, but came here for a short summer getaway to relax.We had a great time, enjoyed the scenery and the trip up the mountain on the ski lift. We would like to come back and explore a bit more another time.

This is a very pet friendly hotel. They had a gift bag for our dog when we checked in. It is clean and comfortable beds. The staff was great and so was the price.

Not too sure if this where i visited but it looks like it. We did some zip lining along with a gondola ride to the top. Nice views there.

We came to the mountain mid-week in August. I was surprised that there were not many people here but the day was kind of overcast. The zip line was operational and we talked to the guy running it and he was very pleasant. The zip line is a little boring, just one straight run. We checked out the rope course... More

Great place to Downhill bike. Rentals and gear available. No lines. Only place I have biked but have no desire yet to venture anywhere else. Guarantee there is every level of challenge for beginner to expert. Should be better promoted somehow. I think people would travel as much for biking as skiing/boarding. Great large vacation rentals in the area for... More

**Remember not to pick or take anything out of the parks as it is illegal. Please stay on trails. The growing season is so short everything grows so much slower. We had to skip the zip line as the kids were too small. We did take the chair lift up and followed the White Pass trail but detoured off onto... More
