Mountains of snow, mountains of adventure! An amazing 29 feet of natural snow blankets Fernie's impressive five alpine bowls nestled in the majestic limestone cliffs of the Lizard Range in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. This is 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. You choose your level of adventure at Fernie, steep and deep or smooth and gentle, you will love our incredible variety of terrain. Many tastefully appointed accommodations and year round services are available at the resort base village, with more improvements and real estate opportunities to come, offering the very best in mountain living. 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.
