  • Sometimes you are just lucky, but Fernie has legendary powder and this place didn't disappoint. Great terrain and short lift lines made for several great days of skiing.  more »
  • This was our first time skiing Fernie and we were lucky enough to ski with someone who knew the area well. He helped us find some great powder off the Timber Chair. Conditions up high were amazing, al...  more »
  • I would say Fernie is one of the nicest places I've visited on a ski-ing holiday. It's definitely worth the long trip from the UK. There is plenty of ski-ing from beginner to double black for a weeks ...  more »

  • Amazing view from the top. Great chairlift and easy hiking. Food is awesome. For $5 more you will get a pass for chairlift & lunch at any of the restaurants in the resort. Loved it.
  • Lot's of terrain to ski! Many different bowls to get up in the powder. Check the map if you're not familiar otherwise you could be waiting a long time in lines at some places. (I seem to always get over to the far skiers' left and wait with 100 other people for the t-bar.) Many on-hill condos available and the village has many food options.
  • tried to get on the nonexistant t-bar 9 times. i made the guy fall :) p: (snail) he slipped it was delayed reaction cuz i never helped him up. also they would not let me zipline with my snowboard. i went snowboarding also my screamo music wuz distracting me so i fell on the huge jump
  • Rather ski here than in banff. Friendly staff, great slopes, and not nearly as crowded as banff ski hills
  • Wide open terrain. Unbelievable dry powder. Zero lift lines. Love this place.
