About Fernie Mountain Resort

Fernie Trail Map

Skiing Fernie Alpine Resort is one of the best ways to experience the Canadian Rockies. Whether this is your first time on the snow and you plan to spend most of your day sliding down hill on your backside, or you are an expert in search of most extreme terrain available Fernie is the mountain for you. Blessed with the perfect mix of elevation and seasonal temperatures Fernie receives an average of 37 feet of snow each year, that’s enough to bury a three storey building right to the top.

This winter wonderland offers riders 142 marked runs, however the main reason guests return year after year is to experience the open thrill of riding one of 5 massive bowls. This unique mountain allows riders of all ages and skill level to criss-cross the face carving a path completely your own. More experienced skiers and snowboarders are challenged to ride the narrow spines choosing from an array of intimidating chutes.

Once the lifts close Fernie Alpine Resort will give you a chance to enjoy the majestic scenery in peace. If you would rather live it up, take the short drive into town and stop by one of the many small town pubs and local restaurants. Filled with a seasonal crowd of ski bums and locals you night is sure to be anything but dull.

Whether you plan to drive yourself or arrive via bus into Fernie, make sure to keep your eyes open. The area is rich with natural wildlife such as Moose, Elk, Deer and Big Horn Sheep. Located approximately 60Km (40 miles) from both the United States and Alberta boarders the scenic drive is half the fun of staying here.
