the resort offers great powder skiing in the winter and great downhill mountain biking in the summer with an aerial park and zip line for other adventures.

“Beautiful view while enjoying a gourmet meal”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Breath taking view and hike around the lake. The road to the lodge is long and windy. You might think you are headed up the wrong road. But it is beautiful and you will see some huge trees. The service and food on the patio was remarkable. The setting with the lake and mountain is breathtaking.

“Best Holiday Ever!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We had an absolute blast in Fernie! It was the first time we have spend an entire season in a Resort and we got to know it really well. It was amazing. I am afraid it has spoiled skiing in Europe completely for us, and we will have to try and come to Canada every year now. The hill is challenging, with some amazing tree runs and a unbelievable snow fall.

We are going back next season for sure!

Thank you so much for spending time with us! We are so glad you got to experience what Fernie is all about and enjoy the community, people and the mountain. With over 34 feet of snow in each of the last 2 seasons and having reached over 30 feet in the last 5 we have seen recent increases in snow to the delight of many coming over from skiing in Europe. We look forward to your return! thank you again!
