February 1-8, 2020
(8 days / 7 nights / 6 days of ski)

Great skiing for everybody with lots of lift and runs. Fernie Alpine Resort, a 3.5-hour drive from Calgary Airport, has a reputation for powder.

At Fernie, there’s no reason to feel intimidated if you prefer groomed cruisers. The resort is designed so almost everyone beyond beginner level can enjoy the Lizard Range upper bowls by maintaining at least one groomed run that spills down from top to bottom in every one of their five lift-accessed bowls. As well, the terrain just above the village is immaculately groomed with a good mix of meandering forest-lined trails and gentle wide-open slopes.

Anyone wanting to enhance their Fernie experience should give the ski school a try. It’s well equipped to give Easterners tips on handling the steep and deep as well as offering a unique guided first tracks program. With fading daylight and the lifts now closed, we shared a pitcher of icy beer and a plate of heaping hot nachos at The Griz, the resort’s original bar, before heading into the town of Fernie, five kilometres away. Fernie is a thriving historic mining town where locals work and play, and is packed with shops, lively bars, cafés, and a wide variety of dining option.
