FERNIE ALPINE RESORT

FAR Trail Crew Update #3

Monday, 19 June 2017 by

June 19, 2017 Let’s get ready to Rumple…. stumpskin that is! With the road to the top of the Timber chair now free of snow, crews were able to go exploring on our upper elevation trails this week. After a little bit of work tree falling and debris clearing we can now advise that Rumple,

‘Ralph Waldo Emerson (Poet) once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years.  No one would sleep that night, of course.  The world would become religious overnight.  We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous.  Instead the stars come out every night, and we watch television.’ -Paul Hawken (environmentalist/activist)

FAR Trail Crew Update #2

Monday, 12 June 2017 by

June 11, 2017 Your home resort is always a special place. Especially when you can share it with a few thousand of your summer friends – new and old. Our Trail Crew is as diverse as our guest list these days; full of various backgrounds, abilities, and goals. We’ve all invested a little of ourselves

FAR Trail Crew Update #1

Tuesday, 06 June 2017 by

Rise and Shine, it’s nearly Legendary Summer time! Our initial attack crews have been on the trails for one week now surveying the spring melt and starting to buff out some of your favourite rides. The snowline is still quite low on the mountain promising a delayed upper Timber-side bike trail opening this year but

I didn’t discover mountain biking until my mid-twenties. While Fernie’s epic trail network, both in town and at Fernie Alpine Resort had yet to be developed in my youth, mountain biking has become such an integral part of Fernie it’s difficult to remember it any other way. After graduating, the lure to come home was

Fernie Alpine Resort was proud to honour 3 of our dedicated Mountain Hosts with long-term service awards this past winter.  Glenn Sedgwick, Lyall Mahan and Wally Pfeifer have been 3 of the friendly faces that have been welcoming and assisting our guests for the past 25 years.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

The snow may be melting, but Fernie Alpine Resort is just starting to warm up for our closing weekend! April 15th and 16th will bring the 2016/2017 season to a close the only way the Resort knows how: with a party! Events and activities for everyone, with the Raging Elk Powder, Pedal, Paddle Relay race and

Mappy Hour is a popular gathering for adventurous individuals living in the city looking to get together with like minded individuals to share stories. Started in NYC, Mappy Hour has now expanded with chapters in Denver, Austin, L.A as well as Canada’s only chapter – Calgary!  YYC’s April Mappy Hour is being moved to the mountains –

Spend your day skiing beautiful groomed runs on the lower slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort with the younger members of your family. Then take the older children and teens up to the bowls where you can teach them to shred knee deep powder. Take a break for a coffee at the mountain top Lost Boys

Thursday, 02 March 2017 by

What does it take to crown an Extreme Griz? Come find out on March 4 when competitors flex their manly – or womanly – mountain muscle. This legendary event kicks off at 11 a.m. with a hearty pancake eating competition at Station Square in Fernie.  From 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Fernie Alpine Resort, competitors

Fernie Winter Sports School

Friday, 24 February 2017 by

The Winter Sports School at Fernie Alpine Resort offers lessons, skill development and specialized programs for all ability levels. We spoke with Snow School Director Wendy Reade and Level 3 Ski Instructor Rodger Renwick to learn more about Fernie’s Winter Sports School. How many instructors are there at Fernie? What kind of training do they have?

The 2016/17 Jeep Junior Freeski at Fernie Alpine Resort came to an exciting close on Feb. 12 with each category carving creative lines down big bang. This year welcomed back the 7-11 category and we almost forgot how fast some of the young guns are! Full list of results can be found here: IFSA results  

Spring, it’s the time of year when the flowers bloom and everything turns green, unless you’re in the Canadian Rockies.  If you find yourself in the Rockies come spring, you’ll quickly notice that the winter blanket of white snow is far from disappearing. In fact, spring in the Rockies offers some of the best skiing conditions.

Fat Biking at Fernie Alpine Resort   What is fat biking? It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors when you’re not shredding down the slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort. Last week, I went out fat biking with my friend Charlie for the first time. We had a blast! We started our ride at rentals

The main reason we make winter weekend pilgrimages to Fernie, B.C. is the snow. Nearly 40 feet of the white stuff falls every season and covers the ski resort and nearby trails with an embarrassment of fluffy flakes. Naturally, downhill skiing is the main attraction, but there’s more to do in Fernie than just snorkel

The Avalanche Rescue Dog program is an integral part of the snow safety and avalanche program of the Fernie Professional Ski Patrol. Dogs have been used in avalanche rescue situations since the early 1900’s and because of their heightened sense of smell, tracking abilities and agility they are some of the greatest rescue assistants. We currently

When you cross the Elk River and wind your way into the town of Fernie you’ll automatically feel like you’ve entered a winter wonderland. The quaint streets are lined with lights that illuminate the taller-than-your-car snow banks, signalling the first hint that this place is a powder junkies dream destination. The town its self is

How often should you wax?

Thursday, 12 January 2017 by

Your skis that is. Kay, retail and rental manager here at Fernie Alpine Resort gives us some advice: It’s recommended you wax your skis every 5 or 6 times out.   The reason being the base of your ski is very porous (similar to your skin) with lotion (wax) you’ll have a better running surface.  This will

Fernie (located in British Columbia, Canada) is getting more and more well known for a lot of exciting things, including (but certainly not limited to);           Averaging more than 30 feet of snow every single season (that Fernie factor pow), Having an awesome (and totally gorgeous) ski town – once named

Griz on Tour & New Ms. Griz Webcam

Saturday, 24 December 2016 by

Everyone who is familiar with Fernie knows the legend of the Griz, and anyone who checks the snow report knows that we have our own Griz standing faithfully next to our snow stick on the Mountain Cams section of our website. What you may have missed however, is that over the summer months our little

That’s right, the holidays are here!  And at Fernie Alpine Resort we’ve packed our schedule full of fun holiday events and activities for you and your family to take advantage of during your visit.  For more information on any of the below events and to see what else is happening at the resort over the

POWDER MATT

One year, while his friends were busy getting jobs and settling down, a young ‘Powder’ Matt Mosteller spent 63 days living in his car so he could ski every day. Now, 20 years later, Powder Matt has settled down a bit, but he’s still seeking outdoor adventure and his stories can be seen regularly in the Calgary Herald, Vancouver Sun, Explore Magazine and many others. His first book, described by The Calgary Herald as “a handbook for living life to the fullest,” The Adventurer’s Guide to Living a Happy Life offers 63 daily meditations to help you broaden your horizons and achieve the ‘goosebump’ moments in life (sleeping in the car is optional). Powder Matt is a crusader, constantly trying to find ways to fight childhood obesity, and getting people ‘outside’. Follow Powder Matt and his adventures through life on his blog.
