Resort Activities

Fernie Activities Guide

Congratulations on selecting Fernie as your Skican vacation destination!  Although Fernie is best known for its terrific skiing/riding, the area offers plenty of additional activities for you to enjoy during your stay.

Cross Country Skiing

The Cross Country Ski trail system at Fernie Alpine Resort has great terrain, with hilly and forested trails offering a fantastic workout and excellent wilderness adventure. It is groomed twice a week and generally has excellent skiing for both skater’s and classical cross-country.

Snowshoeing

The extensive network of mountain biking trails that can be found throughout Fernie make for exceptional Snowshoeing in the winter months. Trail maps are available at most local retailers.

Winter Zipline

Wind down from an epic ski day and soar to new heights on the winter zipline! Conveniently located near the base area on the Mighty Moose slope, the winter zipline will be open on Saturdays, Sundays, and during holidays.

Ice Fishing

One of the most quintessential Canadian winter activities is popular all winter long in Fernie. Let guides prepare a site for you and just sit back and enjoy the seclusion of the area. Many tour companies will use snowmobiles or snow cats to access hidden lakes and pre-chopped holes.

Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling in the Canadian Rockies is the wilderness experience of a lifetime. Encounter big mountain terrain unlike anything you have ever seen with the excitement of riding powder. Snowmobiling in Fernie will take you to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Rocky Mountains.
