Do you want to get more from your ski or snowboard vacation? Our 1 week camps are designed for you to break through barriers in your technique, whilst exploring the very best terrain.

Make the most of your precious time in the mountains

Snowboard instructor sweet pow turnGoing away for a 1 week trip and exploring the resort on your own is fun, and so is joining the resort’s ski school, but there’s so much more that you can experience. One week vacations don’t come around often enough, so it’s really important you make the most of your precious mountain time.

Instead of wasting time hunting down the best areas of the mountain, let our highly qualified team of coaches take you there from the first day, whilst giving you tips, drills and feedback that will boost your technique and broaden your horizons.

We run two types of camps, to match your skill level and objectives:

Development Camps – Improve your technique to make the most of your surroundings

Fernie is the ideal resort to start enjoying the wonders of un-groomed snow. Our pros will tighten up every aspect of your technique, so that the transition to more advanced terrain seems effortless and, more importantly, a lot of fun!

Performance Camps – Get straight into the steep and deep

Fernie has an amazing variety of advanced terrain and our powder-addict pros will know the best places to go at any given moment. Of course, everyone needs pointers to help tighten their technique and there are always bigger challenges to conquer. On a Performance Camp you will reach all your goals.

Fernie ski and snowboard trailsFernie Alpine Resort’s consistent snow record and exciting terrain make it the perfect place to spend a one week vacation. Although you may not want to leave afterwards!

Rolling Stone have called it “North America’s Coolest Town” and that infectious vibe spreads onto the slopes. On average 48cm of snow falls in Fernie per week, which means there are a ridiculous amount of powder days. The sheer size and availability of terrain to suit all standards of skiers and snowboarders is breathtaking. There are more trails and a higher vertical than anywhere else in the Canadian Rockies.
