SCENIC CHAIRLIFT RIDES
Fernie Alpine Resort will be operating the Elk Chairlift for the 2021 summer season.
Summer Chairlift Hours of Operation
(June 26 - Sept. 6, 2021)
Daily: 10 am – 5 pm (until 7 pm 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. On your wanders, be on the lookout for our "FAR Out Views" signs - these are located in great photo op spots, so take a photo, post on your social media and tag us with our tagline - #lovefernie.
Guests then have the option to return to the top of the Elk Chairlift for a scenic ride back down the mountain or hike one of our on-mountain trails to the base area.
