Skiing in Fernie
Fernie is naturally gifted. It has five alpine bowls, the most of any ski area in North America. It gets more than 10 meters of snow every year and it has a vertical drop of over a kilometre.
Its terrain will please skiers of all levels. It ranges from powder-filled glades and gentle runs to steep chutes and mogul fields.
All this leads to Fernie consistently being voted one of the top ski resorts in Canada.
Beginner, intermediate, and expert skiers split the trails almost evenly by skill level—there’s between 30-40% of each.
Polar Peak is highly recommended, at 2134m, the views are stunning. You have a choice of trails to go down – double-black diamond runs on one side for experts and blue runs on the other for intermediates.

Rolling Stone once named it the ‘Coolest Town in North America’. The historic mining town has blossomed into a top-quality ski-town that hasn’t lost its charming ski-town feel.

Aside from the Griz, there’s a range of mountain-inspired restaurants, lounges, boutiques, galleries and chocolatiers offering special experiences you won’t find anywhere else.

Airport transfer types to suit all budgets
Share the vehicle with other passengers with similar flights & destinations.
One of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting to the resort.
Similar to a shared transfer, except this runs to a set timetable, so you're required to book a service that works for your flight times.
Generally not door-to-door but cheaper.
Book a driver and vehicle for your sole use.
No sharing with others, no waiting at the airport and a direct door-to-door service, with no additional stops en route.
Similar to a private transfer the only difference is that it is using a larger vehicle.
Perfect for larger groups wanting to travel together.
Exec & Limousine
Enjoy vehicles such as a top-of-the-range Mercedes minivan or an S-Class Mercedes limousine.
Like a private transfer, but with the additional benefit of travelling in style.
