Comfortable rooms but now getting a little frayed around the edges. Although it is a great location right next to the Elk chair, Lizard Creek is decorated in Cliched Canadian Rustic, that is poorly lit and way to much wood. Although there were a number of annoying, mainly small issues, they began to add up.
We were disappointed by the poor WIFI in our room (advertised as being available) which was slow and consistently unreliable. A broken down spa in the adjacent lodge made the one available spa exceptionally crowded. The laundry in our part of the lodge cost to use (change not available from the front desk) but was free in the condos next door. More frustrating was the room service menu in the room information booklet. Eventually after a number of calls we were told at the front desk that room service was no longer being offered. The very small "gourmet" kitchen in our room was barely equipped. Daily room cleaning is cursory at best.
On the plus side, the beds are comfortable and the rooms warm.
Overall Fernie Ski Resort offers some great skiing opportunities but is not on a par with some of the other resorts we have stayed in for variety of food and evening opportunities unless you are prepared to take the drive into town.
