Fernie Alpine Resort will open for skiing & snowboarding on December 10th, 2020 at 9 am.

Our team has worked tirelessly to prepare our operations for your arrival, and we are looking forward to kicking off the 2020/21 skiing and riding season.  While we all share the joy for sliding on snow, this season will look different.  We have put in place a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan developed in collaboration with the Canada West Ski Area Association.  

Jess having a spot on the tour speaks volume on her skills and ability. Your technique in all snow conditions is dialed down, balance and control in the air is perfected, and you have fluidity and speed in your riding – all things the judges critique your line on.

Repeats every day until Mon Feb 17 2020.

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.

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.
