Here in Fernie in the springtime along with the bluebird days arrive a few rainy days in town. Here is the thing...generally when in rains in town it usually is snowing on the hill! So don't let it get to you, just get out the door and go! So many pockets of powder to be found even in Spring! I've been staying at the Raging Elk, and its seems that the season is definitely at a slower time here. Its such a great layout, rooms are warm - great for drying out the ski gear! There is an awesome pub (Kodiak Lounge) right in the hostel that serves an awesome IPA! Everyone seems to be having fun here even at the end of the season. The Kodiak is still busy and open only till about 11 so its not a big party thrash place but a great spot for apres ski, a chat and a game of pool! ( There is a full size stuffed Kodiak bear that watches over the pool table!! ha!) I came here by myself from Calgary and every night meet awesome people just out having a good time! Lots of Reddeers/Edmontoners / Lethbridgers and of course Euros and the usual sprinkling of Auzzies in all ski towns! Such a great vibe! "Gary" from Scotland runs the pub! Gary is awesome and brings a great energy to all who walk in the door! Great playlist playing too! i love that in a pub! The Raging Elk has an awesome set up downstairs too for making big communal meals or whatever.. also another pool table and a theatre room! Its been an awesome stay and its a great place for a single traveler or family! This was my road less travelled as I usually am not a " hostel" traveler... great stay and bang for your buck! The owners I think also work at the Raging Elk too so you get a sense that its a place that has been invested in and a real solid base. Everyone seems so helpful and just low key! If you are looking into a place to stay in Fernie.. for a night or a week or a month!!!! consider the raging Elk for sure! I had a great stay and will for sure investigate a summer trip!
