We rode the chair lift up the mountain and had a wonderful hike. There was a good naturalist to set you on the right trails. Lots more to do like zip lines, mtn bikes etc, just ran out of time.

Nice little town friendly people. Lots of charm. Mountains are beautiful. Only 1 day needed to see all the sights. We visited out of ski season. Early fall. Winter might be quite different.

I've spend two winter & summer seasons here now. It's not the biggest resort, the lifts are a little slow, and it could use a park - BUT the terrain here is amazing.

If renting prepare to wait, the staff is very slow and have to push a million buttons on computer. 45min to rent the last bike in the place. Staff is friendly but they aren't set up for success with their systems and forms. Guy in front on me was buying a part for his bike and it wouldn't scan so... More

We had not been to Fernie before, but came here for a short summer getaway to relax.We had a great time, enjoyed the scenery and the trip up the mountain on the ski lift. We would like to come back and explore a bit more another time.

This is a very pet friendly hotel. They had a gift bag for our dog when we checked in. It is clean and comfortable beds. The staff was great and so was the price.
