Fernie Winter Travel Guide - Page 2

Winter in Fernie, BC

Nestled deep in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains is a place of unrivalled adventure, where snowy mountaintops sparkle in the midwinter sun giving way to a myriad of powder lines from peak to valley. This place will inspire you, fortify you, challenge you, and restore you. This place is Fernie.

As Fernie slumbers, feather-light blankets of snow descend across the mountains. Morning brings the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, glinting sunlight and the promise of an epic day of discovery. The very mountains that we play among have inspired the legends that define Fernie, where the mythical Griz brings the pillowy soft snow we call champagne powder. Venture through grand ancient cedars and towering granite faces on a magical journey to create your own legend to bring home. Proximity and ease is everything here. Enjoy the comforts of ski-in ski-out lodging or settle within the cultural hub of town a few minutes from Fernie Alpine Resort. Snowshoe and nordic trails interweave throughout the valley, flanked on both sides by stellar catskiing and snowmobiling, creating an immersive winter playground experience.

The picture perfect backdrop of a Rocky Mountain town blends seamlessly with the rose-gold facade of Historic Downtown. With artwork draping gracefully from lampposts and delicacies enticing you into friendly shops, Fernie invites you to stroll and explore its history and culture founded in hard work and fortified by fun.

As twilight falls and street lights glimmer, make new friends over a local beer or savour world-class cuisine before sampling the eclectic
nightlife scene. This is our Fernie. This is your Fernie.
