Carve up the slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort, a ski resort known for having some of the best powder in the Rockies and a vast selection of runs and ski facilities. Located on the Lizard Range, the resort receives annual snowfall of 11 m (37 feet) per season, which attracts skiers from all over the globe. The resort features 10 lifts serving 142 named runs, five alpine bowls, and tree skiing with a vertical drop of 1,082 m (3,550 ft).

  • I have been here many times and love the energy and fun! The tempature is alway moderate, not too cold and the food and drinks are great. We always have a good time! 
  • We rode the chair lift up the mountain and had a wonderful hike. There was a good naturalist to set you on the right trails. Lots more to do like zip lines, mtn bikes etc, just ran out of time. 
  • Nice little town friendly people. Lots of charm. Mountains are beautiful. Only 1 day needed to see all the sights. We visited out of ski season. Early fall. Winter might be quite different. 
  • 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.
