Fernie Alpine Resort Mountain & Ski Terrain

Standing in the village at bottom of the mountain and then when you look up, it’s hard not to be inspired as Ferine looks like something out of a postcard with its steep peaks that form its famed alpine bowls. Fernie’s five alpine bowls Currie, Timber, Siberia, Lizard, and Cedar are their big drawcard, with each bowl offering something unique like the monster lines in Lizard, the steeps, and length Curry, and the long fast runs on Siberia Bowl.

With 142 runs, the lower runs offer gentle terrain for learning around the Mighty Moose poma or regaining your ski legs with laps on the Deer and Elk Chair. However, once you venture higher, a steeper and often deeper skiing and riding will experience awaits.

From the top of the Elk Chair, you are only a handful of warmup turns away dropping down to the bottom of the Bear Chair, which transports you to the top of the Lizard and Cedar Bowls where you can do laps on Lizzard or hit Cedar Bowl and then haul back to Boomerang Chair where you can head back to the Bear and Lizard, drop into Cedar trees or ride back down under the Boomerang lift in the open glades and trees.
