Fernie Ski Resort
Fernie offers some of the best powder skiing in the Rockies with an amazing 30 feet (9 metres) of natural snow each winter blanketing the five alpine bowls nestled in the majestic limestone cliffs of the Lizard range.
Over 100 uncrowded trails and extensive piste grooming are just two of the reasons why Fernie has become so popular in recent years. Fernie also offers extensive backcountry possibilities and much of the mountain is given over to advanced skier bowls and double black diamonds.
Committed safari skiers can make day trips or travel overnight to other ski resorts nearby including Kimberley (1 hour 25 minutes), Big Mountain and Panorama (2 hours), Schweitzer (3 hours), Banff and Red Mountain (4 hours).
There’s a shuttle service from Fernie to Kimberley every Thursday, and the Canadian Rockies Connector Service also operates on Saturdays between Fernie, Kimberley, Panorama and Banff Lake Louise Resorts.
