On Sunday, January 12, 2020, Fernie Alpine Resort will say 'Thank You' to local communities by offering a FREE day of skiing and riding to the residents of the Elk Valley – Fernie, Elko, Elkford, Grasmere, Jaffray and Sparwood as part of the annual Community Appreciation Day.

Please note that Photo ID and proof of local residency (driver's license, pay stub, utility bill, etc.) are required to receive the lift ticket. Tickets are only valid on January 12 and snow checks will not be issued on complimentary tickets.

Whether you’re here for a short or a long time, one thing is for sure - you want to experience the perfect winter’s day. For obvious reasons, there are varying opinions on just what this day would entail… so we got in touch with three avid winter recreationalists, each with their own passion and they gave us a run-down of what this day would look like from their perspective.

The #Ferniestoke Ski Shuttle service starts this Saturday December 14th!

Season Passes are now available at Guest Services, Fernie Alpine Resort. Limited quantity available. $299 plus GST. One way bus fare is $4 cash. Exact change only. 5 and under ride free with a paying adult.

Daily operations: December 14th, 2019 - April 12th, 2020*. Seats are first-come-first served. No pre-booking of seats.

*Schedule may change without notice. April may see daytime and evening service reduced.

Skiing at home at Fernie Alpine Resort is Dylan's all-time favorite thing to do. Here's to another season of powder-filled fun times with your friends and family. Thanks to Fernie Alpine Resort for always supporting ideas like this one.

Three quarters of the terrain at Fernie Alpine Resort sits beneath five looming headwalls in avalanche paths - a constant hazard if not for the daily efforts of a skilled team of technicians who keep the mountain safe.

You’re in Fernie for the winter season, and thus will likely be spending a fair amount of time at Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR). We got out to meet some of the staff who make this place come to life, asking them the same four questions.
