fernie skiing

It’s a spooky scene when I pull up to the 7am morning meeting, as Mountain Operations Manager. As everyone gathers outside the maintenance shop, a thick mist and dim light shrouds the crew. Conversation mills around their exceptional weekend adventures. Priorities become the topic. Opening day looms on our calendar. Anticipation creeps in, looking forward to the soon-to-come silent fall of hundreds of centimetres and that gentle caress of floating through deep soft snow, connecting with friends on a spiritual level as you enjoy your common love for winter.

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.

Burrrlapz is excited to announce the release of their second full length film, Vibes and Stuff. Shot in BC over the course of a winter, this film is a collection of skiing footage "set to songs we like" say members Brody, Josh and Dylan and will premiere at the Vogue Theatre on November 18, 2017.

If this doesn't have you booking your trip to Fernie, we don't know what will! Dylan Siggers does it again at Fernie Alpine Resort December 1, 2013 with music by Linden Gigliotti.

Dylan Siggers, one of Fernie's up and coming artists both in film and video, kicked some butt on the Freeskiing World Tour this winter. Here's a glimpse of what he experienced in Kirkwood!

As we delve deeper into Fernie’s 50th season of lift access skiing, and the Fernie Museum continues its work on a new exhibit (The Power of Powder) to celebrate this accomplishment, we decided to collaborate and highlight some of the characters, friendships and stories that have arisen through an inherent addiction to deep pow.

At long last - SNOW! And lots of it. Fernie was buzzing this last week and the excitement continues with promising forecasts. While cold temperatures may accompany this next storm, not even -25 will deter powder enthusiasts.

Nice teaser Island Lake Lodge, we're stoked to see Balance of Power by the Rocky Mountain Sherpas and for the premiere of All.I.CAN this October in Fernie!
