FERNIE ALPINE RESORT

Well winter just won’t stop this year will it?  In light of Mother Nature’s snow-generosity, we’ve decided to extend our spring ski dates and hours to include all next week – meaning we’ll be open straight through to Sunday April 15th!  Most services will be running, with terrain dependent on conditions.  For the latest info

Spring has officially sprung here at Fernie Alpine Resort and although we loooooove the big snowy dumps of winter, we have to admit that sunshiny days and slushy spring snow are feeling pretty good right now. And not only that but we have every single weekend from here until the end of the season jam

The appeal of the Dummy Downhill lies in its ability to bring joyous delight in the form of creativity, flight and carnage to everyone watching! This year’s event saw 13 dummies (forms mounted on skis) compete against one another in an epic day of fun on Sunday, March 4th. The dummies ranged from popular book

Jeep Jr. Freeski Recap

The future of Canadian freeskiing was in Fernie this past weekend in an action-packed competition sponsored by Jeep, Rossignol and Smith Optics.

Fernie’s Legendary Bush Party

On November 18, 2017, in the dark of night someplace in the woodlands surrounding Fernie, British Columbia, spotlights of fuchsia, aquamarine, and gold illuminate a clearing at the base of a hillside. There, hundreds of humans clad in ski pants, puffy jackets, and toques, move to the beat of the intergalactic house music that pumps

What a perfect day for ripping, slipping, sliding and jumping yesterday was! With warm temperatures and rays of sunshine peeking through the trees and bathing the competitors and spectators of the Raging Elk Kinky Rail Jam in its glow, the day was truly fully-charged. The action got started just after 11am in the Fernie Alpine

‘Tis the season!

Fernie is a winter wonderland in more ways than one this holiday season! Sure, there’s the legendary annual snowfall and seemingly unlimited terrain but there are also many cheer-filled events coming to the resort just in time for the holidays. There’s nothing quite like an old-school scenic sleigh ride to make you feel jolly. With

Welcome Back Fernie!

Welcome back Fernie! Another year of unbelievable powder and excellent riding is off to a flying start.

The Fernie Fun Tax: Pay and Play

“HOLD TIGHT, FÉLIX! WE’RE COMING TO GET YOU!” “I’M IN DEEP! BUT I’VE STILL GOT ONE SKI.” “10-4! WE’RE ON OUR WAY. RESCUE MISSION INITIATED!” The nine-year-old boys climb up the mountain through hip-deep snow to save Félix. In reality, they’re directly under the Bear Chair, and they climb about five yards, but in their
