Continental breakfasts are served seven days a week at the Red Tree Lodge and provide you with the perfect start to a day on the mountains. Our breakfasts include a selection of cereals, porridge, fruit salad, yogurts, toasts, muffins, jams, coffee, tea and juices.
Our three course dinners are provided 3 nights per week in our own restaurant at the Red Tree Lodge. This enables you to explore Fernie's other restaurants or use the self catering facilities on the other nights.
Airport transfers (Coinciding with the group flight times)
We run an airport shuttle service between Calgary and Fernie on the course dates which coincides with our selected group flight option. If you're making your own way to Canada you're welcome to join our transfer if it's convenient for you. Alternatively there is a public bus that you'll need to book in advance. Further details will be included in the Info Packs we provide before the course.
7 day shuttle to resort
The town of Fernie is where the buzz is - where all the shops, bars, restaurants and most hotels are located, and the ski town is just an 8-10 minute drive away. Our fleet of buses will take you up after breakfast and bring you back to the lodge each evening. We are the only group in town to have a storage facility on the mountain for skis and snowboards so travel is made easy!

Flights (from £600)
We arrange return flights on Air Canada for those traveling between the UK and Canada. Flights cost from £600 (flights over the New Year period may be more expensive - please contact the office for more details). You can opt for a flight on your booking form. If you arrange your own flight you can meet us at the airport for the group transfer bus to the resort. Please contact us with any questions.
The day cat-skiing is a highlight of most people's trip to Fernie. Somewhat similar to heli-skiing, it involves a whole day of skiing fresh powder in the backcountry getting rides to the top of the mountain in a cat (aka 'piste basher'). Good times guaranteed!
Avalanche safety course($100/£60)
An introduction to mountain safety considerations helping you understand safe route finding decisions, avalanches, search and rescue and avalanche equipment.
Ski or snowboard kit
If you don't yet own ski equipment you can rent a 20 day "high performance" rental package for approx. $50/day. Alternatively you could take advantage of the great equipment advice from our instructors and invest in your own skis and boots.
