Winter itinerary

Located amid the snow-covered mountains, the Fernie Mountain House offers a spectacular view of the ice-capped town to everyone who chooses us as their vacation rental in Fernie. But that’s no way to experience the powder town, so here’s what you can do instead:

Skiing & Snowboarding

Being the ideal ski destination has its perks. Fernie offers you the opportunity to explore the world of skiing like no other. With different circuits, every level of skier can take part in the adventure.

You can also break free with cross-country skiing to explore the four breathtaking landscapes of Elk Valley Nordic Centre, Fernie Alpine Resort, Fernie Golf Club, and Montane spread over 50kms. And if you are passionate enough, you can even become a qualified snowboarding instructor through our certification program.

Fat Biking & Snowmobiling

Fernie has made a name for itself for being one of the most convenient tourist spots in Canada. When you are feeling peppy, you can rent or buy specially designed fat bikes to trail through the snow. And since snow can be tricky, you can check if it’s safe to go out and find all the information on the best trails to snowmobile on Fernie’s official website.

Ice Skating, Hockey, Curling

What better way to spend family time than playing one of Canada’s classic sports? Spend your evening at Fernie Curling Club and explore curling with no prior experience. Two hours here and you will experience the true essence of Canada. But if you aren’t one for trying new stuff, you can always have fun at the NHL-size ice rink and play good ol’ hockey.
