What's New at Fernie!

Fernie, BC - Fernie Alpine Resort celebrated an epic season last year with great skiing in the 5 alpine bowls thanks to implemented enhancements including an extensive run improvement program, incredible new on-mountain signage, and an enhanced trail map that now hi-lights the diverse terrain across the 5 bowls. Other exciting additions last year were the introduction of new events such as 80's Weekend and the Family Talent Event as well as a weekly activity schedule for families to enjoy.

  • Run enhancements and improvements continue this year with blasting of the "Sky Dive" traverse which will result in easier access to this run. Significant brush cutting has been made on Boomerang, Boomerang Ridge, and Linda's Run. Tree glading between Cruiser and Cedar Center has opened up some great looking lines of intermediate glades. Fallen wood clean up in the the Bear Chutes (which lead off the Bear into Boomerang) has made a huge difference in how open these glades will ski. With Linda's and Boomerang cleaned and opened up, the Bear side will now be the place to go for first runs on a powder day. Something the"Old Side Skiers" will truly appreciate.
  • In addition to major run enhancements, skiers and snowboarders will notice a well maintained snow surface thanks to the help of 2 new grooming CATS in the fleet, including a Winch CAT. This is in addition to the two new CATS that were added to the fleet last year.
  • Other on-mountain changes will be noted by those familiar with run names as the dedicated race training run “Spruce” (Cedar Bowl) has been renamed to "Emily's" in honour of Olympic skier and Fernie local, Emily Brydon.
