The rumours are true - Fernie Alpine Resort is adding a new lift to Polar Peak! Not only will this addition add to the vertical available at the resort (an incredible 3550 feet), it will provide stunning views, more runs, and enhanced snow control. The lift will allow the Fernie Ski Patrol to quickly access ridgelines above major bowls found at Fernie Alpine Resort, speeding up efforts to open terrain - a feature many will appreciate after the amazing snowfall Fernie received last season and is rumoured to be receiving again this winter.
Fernie Alpine Resort is celebrating 50 years of skiing and riding, and what a way to do it - they've already been known for having "legendary powder", now they can add the most vertical and the most ski runs in the Canadian Rockies to the list!
Until then, enjoy the last few weeks of lift access mountain biking, including the NOS Gravity Bike Fest this coming weekend alongside the Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam at the bike park in downtown Fernie.
