Bring your snorkel! You might think that Fernie's 'Legendary Powder' slogan is a big claim, but seeing is believing! Fernie regularly tops the snow charts in Western Canada and, with its inland location, the snow is cold, light and a dream to blast through!
Fernie boasts five large bowls and you’ll get to explore every corner. With almost nothing off-limits, you're imagination will be able to run wild. You'll pick your line through the bowls, among the trees, through the gullies and off the many natural hits.
Fernie really does offer big mountain skiing at its best and all within the safety of excellent avalanche controlled areas. Fernie averages 48cm of snow per week while the resort is open, so you can expect more than a few powder days!
Fernie is the sort of resort where the most powder-hungry instructors want to live, so over the years since 2002 we have been able to form a team of the best high-level ski instructors in the industry.
You'll love skiing alongside them, as they polish your technique and give you the tools you need to enjoy such an amazing mountain. Before you know it you'll be shredding the best parts of the mountain with confidence and style.
Your skiing experience will be changed forever!
Spend six weeks with us and we'll help you develop your skills across the whole mountain, tackling terrain you never thought possible, as well as perfecting those stylish turns in glorious untouched powder.
We'll teach you how to ski-tour and take you into the backcountry wilderness. You'll feel closer to the mountain than ever before, while enjoying conditions that very few skiers ever get to experience.
Saving the best till last! This amazing 6 week camp works its way up to an epic finale.
At the end of the course, you'll go on a four day wilderness adventure! You'll take a breathtaking helicopter flight over the Kootenay mountain range, before landing at a backcountry lodge retreat.
You'll then spend four days experiencing an authentic backcountry lifestyle, touring into the great unknown and skiing amazing untouched bottomless powder!
A good night's sleep to match a great day on the hill, this is an ideal base for your time in Fernie.
Back in 2007 we purchased our very own hotel and set about making it the best ski accommodation possible by focusing on comfort and excellent facilities.
All rooms have queen sized beds and facilities include a sauna and hot tub, ski storage and tuning room, movie room, full kitchen facilities and our on-site restaurant and bar, where all of your course meals are served.
If you're in a hurry, download a brochure. However, some things are better when you take time over them, so we recommend getting a brochure by post and enjoying it with a cuppa...
