Bowls Full Of Pleasure Pete Burnett, Overseas Operations Manager

"Fernie is one of my favourite resorts in Canada. There is so much skiing on offer, both groomers and steep and deep in the back bowls. Downtown Fernie is also well worth a visit, lots of funky cafes & galleries to visit when your legs need a rest!"

Fernie Ski Holidays

Fernie is a BC gem situated close to the border with Alberta in the perfect location to receive an average of 30 feet of snow a season. 

The mountain offers a mix of gladed runs through the pine trees and wide open bowls at higher elevations all served by a super efficient lift system which gets better and better every season.

There’s plenty of steep and deep if you’re feeling adventurous and one of the five bowls is where to be on a powder day. If you prefer the hero status of perfectly groomed cruisers don’t worry – there’s no shortage in the 2500 acres of terrain on offer.

Stay up in a hotel or condo up in the mountain village which is convenient for the slopes or down in the town of Fernie around 10-15 minutes away. You’ll find plenty to do here once the ski day stops with numerous bars, restaurants and activities on offer 

Skiing in Fernie

Novices and intermediates will love the pillowy softness of the powder that falls on the numerous gentle rolling runs and the many perfectly groomed trails.

The lower area of the mountain, closest to the village, is devoted to beginners and novices, while more advanced skiers and riders will head straight for the steeper bowls and ridges.

Need a stop for lunch? The new Lost Boys Cafe is located at the top of the Timber Bowl Express Quad, and is a great spot to enjoy a relaxed bite to eat to eat while taking in the amazing scenery.
