WE LIKE

  • Good snow record -9m on average with less chance of rain than at Whistler (and less chance of Arctic temperatures than at resorts up in the Rockies)
  • Great terrain for those who like it steep and deep, with lots for confident intermediates too
  • Some good on-slope accommodation available, good value for money resort so popular with families

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Mountain resort is very limited - although what's there is pretty good. Little for the non skier to do
  • Still too many slow, old lifts which means queues and delays at busy times
  • Limited groomed cruising for timid or average intermediates

On the slopes

Ski Fernie and the terrain you'll find lends itself perfectly to off-piste powder skiing holidays thanks to the five alpine bowls. With well groomed pistes, a third of the ski trails are classes as green (easy) and they offer wide open spaces to practise your turns! There's a good terrain park and half-pipe for boarders and 14km of cross-country tracks. There's also good ski schools & private instruction.

You also need to think about your lift pass as you can buy one that enables you to ski or snowboard in the other Canadian Rockies Super Pass ski resorts Kimberley, Lake Louise, Mount Norquay, Panorama and Sunshine Village (Banff).

Off the slopes

With a fitness centre, spa cinema and lots of outdoor activities like sleigh rides and dogsledding, the non skiers are well catered for This is a good family-friendly resort as well as offering superb skiing - no wonder it's constantly in the top 10 North America resorts.
