the mountain in a nutshell.

No trip around the Powder Highway in Canada is complete without dipping to the Southeast corner of British Columbia to visit Fernie. Famed for its mild weather and steep and deep skiing, Fernie's 2,500 acres of skiing boasts an annual average snowfall of around 9 metres (30 ft.) sliding it comfortably in the top 10 snowiest resorts in Canada. Fernie also gets up there with its vertical clocking in at 1,082 metres (3,550 ft.). Steep and deep is freaking right! 

Siberia, Timber, Currie, Lizard, Cedar. No, we aren't trying to activate a sleeper agent, these are the names of your new best friends AKA the five massive powder bowls that call Fernie home. And with shorter than average lift lines at this resort, your biggest challenges of the day will be picking which bowl you liked best and which après beverage to purchase from Fernie Brewing Company.
