  • Amazing snow! Love the powder and slope variety. Lifts to the top and huge views from everywhere adds to the experience too. Love the light touch of tunes in the background while on some of the lifts. Honestly its pretty nippy on the very top so bundle up! But the trade off for amazing snow is worth it.
  • Fernie is a really unique ski resort as its runs follow ridges and not peaks. It feels like there is always new terrain to explore. If you are a snowboarder, there are some really flat spots on green runs but if you can get a bit of speed, you'll make it. The town is also great. We love Fernie!
