Calling All Adventure Junkies — Welcome to Legendary Fernie!

February 22, 2023 If you love adventure, you won’t want to miss out on everything that Fernie Alpine Resort has to offer.
From thrill-seeking fun on and off the slopes to fat biking and dining, they’ve got tons of cool experiences to choose from – and if you don’t get to do them all, you’ll be booking your trip back before you even leave!

Here are just a few of the activities you can choose from:

Experience the panoramic mountain views at sunrise and enjoy a VIP experience as ‘the first on the mountain’ shredding the powder for the day. Energize your morning as you hit the gladed slopes covered in fresh snow, or opt for the freshly groomed mountainsides and cruise down the hill with the crisp morning air on your face.

With this experience, the mountain is yours to explore before the hustle and bustle of activity of the day.

If you’ve never been catskiing, you need to add it to your adventure junkie bucket list. Escape the resort and experience the quiet, undisturbed calm of drifting through the untouched powder off-piste. Led by professional guides, who will drive you up each run in a snowcat, you will navigate the over 3,000 acres of terrain ranging from ridges and long fall line runs to spectacular gladed meadows.

Fat Biking

Enjoy a day off the slopes and test the trails with winter fat bikes. A “fat bike” is an upgraded mountain bike that has wide tires to provide extra traction and stability through the snow.

Rent fat bikes from Fernie Alpine Resort and discover over 10 kilometres of groomed trails or explore the extensive network of trails in the community all winter long.

Dining and Nightlife
