Bowls Full Of Pleasure Karen Moodie, Ski Specialist

"Fernie is one of my favourite resorts in Canada. There is so much skiing on offer, lovely long groomers, some great gladed runs and then there's five legendary alpine bowls to attempt! Downtown Fernie is also well worth a visit with lots of funky cafes, shops, bars and great restaurants!"

Après Ski in Fernie

Fernie has a good, unpretentious on-mountain, après-ski scene. The Griz Bar above the Daylodge is a firm favourite – this is not the place to order up a cocktail, but it does have Rocky Mountain atmosphere in buckets. Downtown in Fernie old town, 3 miles from the mountain village, there is a more extensive selection of bars where you can play till the wee small hours.
