Fernie Winter Sports School

Friday, 24 February 2017 by

The Winter Sports School at Fernie Alpine Resort offers lessons, skill development and specialized programs for all ability levels.

What kind of training do they have?

The 2016/17 Jeep Junior Freeski at Fernie Alpine Resort came to an exciting close on Feb. 12 with each category carving creative lines down big bang. This year welcomed back the 7-11 category and we almost forgot how fast some of the young guns are! Full list of results can be found here: IFSA results  

Spring, it’s the time of year when the flowers bloom and everything turns green, unless you’re in the Canadian Rockies.  If you find yourself in the Rockies come spring, you’ll quickly notice that the winter blanket of white snow is far from disappearing. In fact, spring in the Rockies offers some of the best skiing conditions.

Fat Biking at Fernie Alpine Resort   What is fat biking? It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors when you’re not shredding down the slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort. Last week, I went out fat biking with my friend Charlie for the first time. We had a blast! We started our ride at rentals

The main reason we make winter weekend pilgrimages to Fernie, B.C. is the snow. Nearly 40 feet of the white stuff falls every season and covers the ski resort and nearby trails with an embarrassment of fluffy flakes. Naturally, downhill skiing is the main attraction, but there’s more to do in Fernie than just snorkel

The Avalanche Rescue Dog program is an integral part of the snow safety and avalanche program of the Fernie Professional Ski Patrol. Dogs have been used in avalanche rescue situations since the early 1900’s and because of their heightened sense of smell, tracking abilities and agility they are some of the greatest rescue assistants. We currently

When you cross the Elk River and wind your way into the town of Fernie you’ll automatically feel like you’ve entered a winter wonderland. The quaint streets are lined with lights that illuminate the taller-than-your-car snow banks, signalling the first hint that this place is a powder junkies dream destination. The town its self is

How often should you wax?

Thursday, 12 January 2017 by

Your skis that is. Kay, retail and rental manager here at Fernie Alpine Resort gives us some advice: It’s recommended you wax your skis every 5 or 6 times out.   The reason being the base of your ski is very porous (similar to your skin) with lotion (wax) you’ll have a better running surface.  This will

Fernie (located in British Columbia, Canada) is getting more and more well known for a lot of exciting things, including (but certainly not limited to);           Averaging more than 30 feet of snow every single season (that Fernie factor pow), Having an awesome (and totally gorgeous) ski town – once named

Griz on Tour & New Ms. Griz Webcam

Saturday, 24 December 2016 by

Everyone who is familiar with Fernie knows the legend of the Griz, and anyone who checks the snow report knows that we have our own Griz standing faithfully next to our snow stick on the Mountain Cams section of our website.

A typical powder day in Fernie, BC All winter long, you methodically check in with Ron Lakeman of Fernie Alpine Resort’s Alpine Weather Report (he’s the man, and he’s honest), and it’s looking extremely good for the next couple of days. The storm is on its way, and it has the potential to be big.

Checking your Ski Equipment now is very important for many reasons, here are the 3 top reasons; FAQ: I get asked all the time ‘Why should I check my Ski Equipment, as I’m not a great skier and spend lots of time on the beginner slopes with kids…” My Answer: I always say try these- once

Ski towns are generally run on a couple of simple rules; There are no friends on a powder day and The 20cm rule (cms may vary by town) To put it another way, ski towns are run by snow.  And lots of it.  Those epic powder days that ski bums dream of.  Those drool worthy runs where

If Americans have a cultural stereotype about Canada, it’s that we’re a land of ice and snow inhabited by “Eskimos” and policed by red-coated Mounties on horseback. (The Mounties drive in police cars and they have the same tools as cops in America… and the Eskimos, well, they are actually called Inuit, and live much

POWDER MATT

One year, while his friends were busy getting jobs and settling down, a young ‘Powder’ Matt Mosteller spent 63 days living in his car so he could ski every day. Now, 20 years later, Powder Matt has settled down a bit, but he’s still seeking outdoor adventure and his stories can be seen regularly in the Calgary Herald, Vancouver Sun, Explore Magazine and many others. His first book, described by The Calgary Herald as “a handbook for living life to the fullest,” The Adventurer’s Guide to Living a Happy Life offers 63 daily meditations to help you broaden your horizons and achieve the ‘goosebump’ moments in life (sleeping in the car is optional). Powder Matt is a crusader, constantly trying to find ways to fight childhood obesity, and getting people ‘outside’. Follow Powder Matt and his adventures through life on his blog.
