Fernie is without doubt one of the best skiers' resorts in North America. It offers excellent family and beginner slopes but comes into its own for the advanced skier.

The steep and deep skiing available at the Fernie Alpine Resort is challenging yet as safe as possible due to their vast investment into avalanche prevention and control. Check out the new Polar Peek lift that accesses the very top of the mountain for outstanding views down the whole Elk Valley on a sunny day! Enjoy a beverage and some Nachos at the Griz Bar at the resort for Apres-ski or with unrivalled views of the ski hill and far more natural light with its West-facing aspect, our guests can enjoy Apres-ski outside on the lodge decks in relative sun-drenched warmth - even after the last lift has closed. Then relax in the on-site sauna or hot tub and enjoy the quiet sitting next to the fireplace.


For snowmobiling guests, the Lodge is the perfect base. It has the scale to accommodate vehicles and trailers, it has direct access to the network of sledding trails east of Fernie, and it has ample on-site amenities for others in your group to relax.

We can also arrange snowmobile trips for our guests who wish to sample the exhiliration of sledding in a controlled manner with experienced guides.

Snowshoeing and Cross-Country Skiing

For snowshoeing you can use many of the local hiking trails as well as some shoeshoe specific trails located at Fernie Alpine resort. FAR has a couple great cross-country skiing loops as well. There are groomed trails that skirt the Elk River as well as snake through the golf course. There are also some great trails near Island Lake Lodge and some newly built trails that can be accessed right near the lodge.

Downtown Fernie

Fernie's old town is a lovely place to wander and relax, it has numerous quality stores offering a range of goods from ski apparel, through artisan products, fine cheeses, luxury furniture, restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

Actually, the list of what to spend your $85 lift ticket saving on is could get a massage, enjoy lunch at the Arts Station, buy some hand made chocolates at the Bean Pod chocolate factory, have a mid-afternoon cookie and coffee at Freshies, try some afternoon curling, or a skate at the community ice rink and still have money left over to sample some cuisine at one of the many restaurants in Fernie. The nightlife in town is hopping in the winter time and you have a choice of different pubs, bars, lounges, and nightclubs to listen to some live music or just have a relaxing pint.

We are finding that more and more visitors are coming to Fernie not just to ski.....and Fernie and the Lodge have made great efforts to provide the amenities to reward those travellers.
