Fernie Alpine Resort
Fernie Alpine Resort’s five alpine bowls, 2,500+ skiable acres, eleven meters (37 feet) of annual snowfall and a vertical drop of 3550 feet (1051 m) combines to deliver uncrowded adventure skiing and riding. When you hit Ferine on a deep powder day, it’s like the skiing heaves have combined as you have multiple options from the gentle lower mountain terrain, to steep and then very steep and deep in the high alpine lift serviced offering open bowls, trees, and chutes available for the taking.
Fernie Alpine Resort is located on the Lizard Range in the Canadian Rockies and gets more than its fair of powder snow each season, arguably the most snow of all the Canadian Rockies resorts. It’s a skiers and riders mountain and has been compared to other resorts like Crested Butte in Colorado or Alta and Snowbird in Utah.
