SCENIC CHAIRLIFT RIDES
Fernie Alpine Resort will be operating the Elk Chairlift for the 2019 summer season.
Summer Chairlift Hours of Operation
(June 22 - Sept. 2, 2019)
Elk Chairlift: Open daily from 10am – 5pm (until 7pm on Thursdays)
After a scenic ride up the Elk Chair, take a leisurely hike on the Boom Trail, visit the Lizard Bowl Observation Deck, or check out the fossils on Skeleton Flats. In addition to the breathtaking mountain scenery, you’ll see our native trees & alpine wildflowers, and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some of our local wildlife. Be sure to check out Nature Bob’s Interpretive Centre - located at the Yurt (@ top of the Elk Chair), the interpretive centre is full of picture boards & information, as well as super cool fossil displays.
During your visit to the top of the Elk Chair, enjoy a scenic lunch or snack at the Bear's Den. Then load the Elk Chairlift for a scenic ride back down the mountain, or hike one of our on-mountain trails to the base area.
