FERNIE ALPINE RESORT

Burrrlapz refers to a group of die hard skiers from Fernie, British Columbia, Canada.  They live, eat and sleep skiing and are granted us the opportunity to have a glimpse into their daily mountain adventures through their first full length ski movie.  Get your tickets at Commit Snow & Skate on Fernie’s main street (2nd

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

I like to take videos from the bedroom window of my Fernie house and email them to friends in Ontario. I’m a jerk like that. I start by focusing out over the forest, spectacular in a new way every season. I scan along the peaks of the Lizard Range out to the world-famous cat skiing

Imagine arriving at a crossroads and finding a sign that reads Powder Highway.  What would you do?  Well, you’d take that road, of course.  Say it once or twice out loud. “Powder Highway.”  It has an alluring sound, doesn’t it?  A sort of “I dare you not to drive it,” quality that spells road trip.

Our First Family Ski Trip to Fernie Alpine Resort
Monday, 29 February 2016 by

I remember weekend ski trips to Fernie with great fondness but up until recently we hadn’t ventured beyond local hills near Calgary. I guess we thought that a big ski resort like Fernie would be intimidating as a family, that there wouldn’t be enough beginner terrain to ski, or that it was just unnecessary to

Seeing is believing: How to pick the perfect pair of goggles
Monday, 22 February 2016 by

Snow goggles are an important piece of your gear and they become even more vital in shifting light conditions, at high speeds and with gusting winds. Fernie Alpine Resort can see a great variety of weather conditions, from snow storms to flat light and sometimes changing from overcast to bluebird during the course of a

Fernie: A Countdown to Awesome
Monday, 08 February 2016 by

Most people know the most notable numbers of Fernie, over 2500 Acres of terrain, over 1082 m vertical rise and 142 runs.  But here are some other numbers to note from Fernie…   15 The amount of years Greg Barrow (aka G money/aka local legend) has been getting the coveted very first chair of the

Food! Our second favourite F word
Monday, 25 January 2016 by

Fernie is our first favourite… Like many skiers/boarders in Fernie during the winter, you’re driving here from Calgary.  Just 3 hours away makes it easy enough to travel to after the Friday work day, so arriving late may be an unavoidable situation.  If you’re coming for the sole purpose of catching some pow at the

Steal this list! The Top 7 runs at Fernie according to us.
Monday, 14 December 2015 by

In Hollywood they say there’s no business like show business, and in Fernie we say there’s no business like snow business.  And when we say business, we mean business.  No matter what type of rider you are, we’ve put together a secret little list of tips for you to steal and use this season straight

Chasing Powder: The Dylan Siggers Story
Wednesday, 25 November 2015 by

From grinders to Burlapzzz – not many people can brag about how awesome their life is like Dylan Siggers can (and trust us, he has rights).  Let us tell you why; Dylan is what we refer to as a true Fernie local, meaning he is born in Fernie to parents who have been living here

Top 7 things to do this winter while visiting Fernie, B.C
Monday, 16 November 2015 by

Fernie is full of passion.  Arguably, first and foremost, many are die hard skiers or snowboarders and enjoy all the perks that come with having Fernie Alpine Resort in their backyard.   However, outside of the resort there are plenty of other fun things to do and see in Fernie, B.C.  If you’re looking to venture

Confessions from a Ski Dad
Wednesday, 11 November 2015 by

Confession – before my wife and I had kids I would walk across a few football fields of parking lot to get to the lifts if it meant my efforts would be rewarded with fresh tracks. However now that I have a family, the expression “ski in-ski out” has the same dreamy connotations for me

Why is everyone in Fernie smiling right now?
Wednesday, 28 October 2015 by

Snow, that’s why!  We’re off to a snowy start here at Fernie Alpine Resort, with the snow in fact first falling at the beginning of September right as we were closing down our summer operations!  While it made a brief disappearance so far in October, it returned this week and is a great sign for

Fernie’s Furry Hero’s
Tuesday, 20 October 2015 by

Dogs have been man’s best friend since they were domesticated some 40,000 years ago.  Since then their role in society has been shaped by their loyalty and ability to work closely with their human owners.  Dogs have been used in avalanche rescue situations since at least the early 1900’s.  With their heightened sense of smell,

Have you ever gone on a ski or snowboard trip and looked around at the staff that you meet throughout your day and secretly say to yourself “I wish I could do that”.  If you have ever debated spending a season working in the mountains, there is no better time to quit your day job, pack up

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.
