Fernie Trail Map

Centrally located just 60 km (40 miles) from the borders of the United States and the province of Alberta, Fernie Alpine Resort provides all the necessary ingredients for a truly memorable ski vacation. Blanketed by an average annual snowfall of 37 ft. of some of the best powder North America has to offer, visitors take to the mountain to enjoy all of its 2,500 skiable acres.  A brilliant combination of mild temperatures and vertical adventure, Fernie Alpine Resort lends itself to creating the most exhilarating experiences around. 

Serviced by ten lifts, including two high-speed quads, upwards of 14,500 skiers and riders are hauled up the hill each hour to encounter the majesty that this resort provides.  Featuring varying degrees of terrain, suitable for both the novice and advanced skier, Fernie proudly boasts 142 marked runs and five massive bowls in which to maneuver down.  Die-hard enthusiasts are certain to be left breathless with the awesome alpine action available down the narrow spines and challenging chutes that are so prominent here.  Upping the ante, the progressive rail park is a veritable playground with its phenomenal mixture of rails and boxes, allowing stunts to be mastered at their own pace and without limitations.  For a less daring yet equally invigorating experience, Fernie Alpine Resort offers 10km (6.2 miles) of impeccably groomed cross-country trails to be discovered.
