Suggested Itinerary

Travel to Fernie! If you are coming from Calgary, travel south along highway 3 past the town of Frank, the location of the colossal Frank Slide in 1932. You’ll cruise through the wild and stunning Crowsnest Pass, a continental divide on the Alberta / BC border. The views along this part of the trip are naturally magnificent. Plan for a coffee stop and photos here before you make your way towards Fernie. When you arrive at your hotel, nestle in, unpack and explore the area. Be sure to get your gear ready this evening as you’ll want to be up early to make first chairs tomorrow. Note: The time zone in Fernie, BC falls under Mountain Standard Time, which is the same as in Alberta.
Visit the Guide Hut for any last minute gear that you might need. They also demo premium gear that is meticulously maintained so you have 100% confidence that you are testing the gear and not the tune.

(additional charge)

Upgrade your Fernie accommodations to include a premium king, junior studio or executive studio room. Studio rooms include a dining area, kitchenette and spectacular mountain views from the small standing balcony.
Today is the day to ski Fernie Alpine Resort and it’s legendary powder! Grab breakfast, load the stuff you’ll need and hit the road early. The trip from the Park Place Lodge to the parking lot at Fernie is about one hot cup of coffee. You have 3,550 vertical feet, over 140 runs and 5 alpine bowls to play in when you arrive. Fernie enjoys an average winter temp of -5c, but check the ski report as weather changes quickly here. Grab a mountain map, and jump on a lift. While heading out for a warm up run, plan to see all 7 chairlifts. Each one has access to some great terrain and every skill level will enjoy the experience. In the late afternoon, a tasty beverage in one of mountainside lounges will seem the perfect end to the day on the slopes. Once back at the hotel, clean yourself up and check out the town of Fernie. There are several great shops, restaurants and bars to visit.
If you are looking for a cool experience, then visit the Fernie Ice Bar. Kept cold, this bar is covered in ice (litterly) and you can sample a variety of vodkas at ultra-low temperatures, donned in provided parkas. This experience is unique and allows you to appreciate the true flavours of vodkas from around the world.

(additional charge)

Include rentals or lessons with your package. The Sports Alpine Rental Shop offers standard and high performance rentals of skis, snowboards, boots and poles. The Winter Sports School offers lessons for first time skiers and snowboarders, specialty camps, private lessons, bubble groups and a variety of children’s programs.
Pack up all of your belongings and check out of your hotel. Ensure all of your ski/board gear is accessible for your last day in Fernie, BC. You know the drill today, head back to the epic spots from yesterday and drop a few new stashes. Try as you might, you won’t get to do everything in just two days, but you’ll certainly have made an honest effort and had some great adventures. You may as well go hard on the slopes your evening plans are driving and sharing lots of great stories on the way home.
Once you’ve wrapped for the day, consider grabbing a snack for the road from one of the local outlets you saw last night. If you’ve got time, stop at Nevados Tapas & Tequila to sample various plates or share the La Familia Tacos with your group as you talk about your time in Fernie.

(additional charge)

If it’s been a long couple days, consider adding another night in Fernie to explore the town. Or, if you are going towards Calgary, add a night or two in the Banff National Park to relax in the hot spring, view the beautiful mountain range and indulge in the local culinary scene.
