About Fernie

The quintessential Canadian resort, Fernie has it all. With an average annual snowfall of 9.1m, and over 1000m of vertical, you’re sure to find both steep and deep at Fernie, among its countless glades and chutes. 142 trails fan out across five distinct alpine bowls, nestled in the majestic limestone cliffs of the Lizard Range in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. One of the fastest growing resort in Canada; “top ten in North America’, ‘most improved’ and ‘best new lifts’ are just a few of the notable awards this resort has earned.

For a change of scene after a day on the slopes, the quaint city of Fernie, rich in coal mining history and turn-of-the-century architecture, is sure to please the whole family and is only minutes away from the resort.
