  • Fabulous, friendly, fun! We thoroughly enjoyed our recent ski trip to Fernie Alpine Resort and found everyone helpful, welcoming and kind. The runs are diverse, extensive and altogether delightful. We...  more »
  • Pretty basic as far as amenities go but has many good lines of advanced skiing. Problem is that often you get some freezing rain on top of snow layer. Also what I think is the most desirable lift Pola...  more »

  • Amazing skiing and super friendly staff. The guy at the rental shop let me pick up my skis for the next day an hour early, and took the time to walk through which skis might be most suitable for my preferences, style, and the snow conditions. It was nice that you could go back to swap to different skis for the performance ski rentals. There was plenty of fresh powder when we went, and even when the runs got a little tracked out, there were plenty of glades and off piste runs with good snow. Can't wait to come back!
  • Fernie is the best ski resort in Canada! We skied all over north-America and will say that Fernie resort is one of the 3 best mountain in North America and no1 in Canada The quality of the snow is superb and the quantity unbelievable!!! The ski terrain is diverse and very challenging. Cedar bowl and Timber bowl offer great tree skiing and steep runs. We loved the base village and helpful staff coming from all over the world, most notably Australia, UK and NZ. Several nice restaurants in Fernie, located just 4Km from the mountain. Will definitely go back in 2019.
  • This is one of Canada's top ski resorts. There is a large selection of different types of terrain for all levels of skier. They get some of the most and best snow in the Rockies. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have rentals, ski schools, restaurants, cafe's, and stores right at the mountain. The resort is about a 10 minute drive to the town of Fernie as well. If you want to go skiing/snowboarding in one of the best places in Canada, you should come here.
  • Often great snow. Good infrastructure with friendly staff around the mountain. Passes available online, lots of nearby accommodations for all price points. There is areas for all skill levels to try from beginner to expert. This is the best rcr property in my humble opinion. Snow conditions are often accurate which allows you to plan your day accordingly. Child care is also available. Even a bar for your adult children to enjoy their time here.
  • We had a great experience here with our 3 year old and 5 year old snowboarding for the first time in a big hill. We did a one hour private lesson for them both. We were able to book same day. The magic carpet was perfect. Slope of the bunny area was great for them learning. Close to the one cafe so my wife and I could easily take turns watching our baby inside or seeing boy boys have a blast outside. We thought the pricing was very reasonable. Next time we’d try some of their all day lessons for the kids. We came back the next day to give them a little more practice on the magic carpet without an instructor. Lots of parents on the hill teaching their kids on their own. They’ll be ready for the big runs in no time.
