Fernie is renowned for its awesome snow record and, year after year, delivers some of the best snow conditions in the world.
Earlier this season, we were really excited to see whether the promised return of an “La Nina” winter would bring more insane conditions to the “Powder Triangle” of BC. Now that the last lift has turned, the results are in, and Fernie are reporting a record breaking snowfall season with 1,145cm of snowfall… that’s an average of over 65cm per week that the resort was open! At one point 96cm came on 42 hours!
Some of the footage that we’ve seen over the course of the season has been crazy, particualarly the following two videos from Fernie local Dylan Siggers:
And this is a lovely way to wrap up the season, with some stunning heli footage of the resort. It really shows how big-mountain Fernie really is.
Bring on next winter!
