Experience Fernie’s culinary talent with a weekend of local flavours and fares for the 3rd annual Untamed Kootenays culinary event.

Time: 

Enjoy lunch on the Bear Patio alongside creative cocktails or enjoy gourmet dining in the evening restaurant while the sun sets over the Three Bears. 

Put your snowsuit on and get out there! The season for playing outdoors is here and Fernie’s mild temperatures, dry fluffy snow and easily accessible trails and sledding hills make outdoor play a breeze.

Explore our incredible winter wonderland with a snowcat ride, lunch and snowshoe. Take a snowcat ride up through old growth forest to our scenic mountain lodge. Have a spectacular lunch in the Tamarack Lodge dining room and go for a snowshoe around the lake. Complete the full lodge experience with an added spa treatment. You deserve it!

The Lizard Range’s wild and rugged peaks seem to have a knack for capturing moist weather patterns holding them hostage while snow falls hard and heavy for days. This makes Fernie the ideal winter playground for countless outdoor pursuits. 

Sometimes, when the snow flies covering the Valley in a blanket of white, fluffy powder, instead of heading to the hill with the masses, a solo walk meandering in the trees is just what you need. Here are three of my three favourite places to “get lost” in winter.

The leaves are starting to turn and fall is definitely in the air. Island Lake Lodge's local farm partners are harvesting and their favourite beer company is putting out some seasonal favourites.
