Five bowls to ski, each one accessible by different lifts. Did make it a bit of a challenge to ski a favorite run, as you often needed to do a few others and a few lifts to get back. Also, bowls funnel down to common...More

Fernie never disappoints. Amazing powder and tons of great runs for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Great little shop, pubs, and coffee shops right on the hill! Love it here!

I hadn't skied Fernie in 20 years. Their snow was always the attraction here, but they now have the facilities to match. High speed quads abound. There are five bowls, which due to lift configuration are easiest explored from left to right as one faces...More

Stayed at a hotel in the resort for a few nights. This place is amazing. The spring conditions were perfect. The locals and tourists are super friendly. Definitely worth visiting Fernie Alpine Resort.
