Fernie Alpine Resort is excited to collaborate with The Fernie Arts Station and the Fernie District Arts Council to present an outdoor art gallery, bringing you a wonderful art display from some of our talented local artists.
Artists were asked to create original pieces to enjoy as you stroll through the forest and potentially purchase to support local artists and culture. Free to create a piece that spoke to them, many of our artists painted the outdoors, encapsulating nature with a playful outcome. This exhibition is a celebration of special places, characters and colour expressions from their artistic minds.
These original pieces are set up along the Boom Trail, creating the Art Gallery Walk in nature. Inspired by R.O.A.M- Revelstokes outdoor art movement. Bringing the art and sport communities together.
The art will be on display until September 4th. At which point any purchased art can be collected / delivered by the Fernie Arts Station.
Art is available to purchase at the following link:

Tomorrow is the day, we open for summer 2022!
Enjoy lift-accessed mountain biking, hiking & sightseeing all summer long!
The Elk Chair will be open daily from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm (with extended hours from 10:30 am to 7:00 pm on Thursdays).
Our summer operations run from June 25th to September 5th
Ben’s Big Rig is back for 2022 as a green run to access Deer Trail or to ride all the way down to Bear load with access to Lower Duff Dynasty. Ben’s Big Rig received dirt and machine work to build up berms and remove brake bumps. This work is still being finished off so may not be ready for opening day, but will be soon after.
Why take the chairlift if you’ve got an e-mountain bike! New this summer, we now allow uphill bike traffic (e-mountain bikes* or regular mountain bikes) on our specified uphill route at the Fernie Alpine Resort Bike Park.
E-mountain bikers will love the convenience of quick laps on this uphill only route, which accesses the Elk Side downhill trails as well as Lower TNT (from Rock Landing only) on the Timber side. Your laps can be short – deke off at access point A to rip down Honeybee, Eville, Holo Bike and Phat Larry’s – or take the longer pedal on up to access point B or C to access the rest of the DH trails in the bike park. Of course, those who like to pedal under their own power are also welcome! It’s a great way to stay and get fit, and enjoy the adrenaline of our DH trails too!
Uphill riders MUST have a valid Uphill E-Bike/Enduro ticket, or mountain bike season pass/day ticket in order to access our bike park trails. Please visit Guest Services to purchase your ticket.
Please note that the uphill route is open only during regular bike park hours:
Monday – Friday: 10:30am to 4:30pm (to 7pm on Thursdays)
Saturday & Sunday: 9:30am to 4:30pm
Please visit our website’s bike park trail map to see the new uphill route.
