Family day mountain biking Fernie was absolutely fantastic. Wife and 2 kids 7 year old and 10 year old. This was our first time to Fernie and we all love it. Looking forward to seeing you this winter.

We have skied Fernie our whole lives. It’s blossomed from a little Hill that could to a big bowl filled powder heaven at times. There is enough terrain to entertain everyone from green to double black. It’s well maintained and spreads out skiers over several...More

Took the lift up the hill and it was spectacular. Stayed up there watching the mountain bike competitors bike the trails. Wild! You can enjoy a drink and lunch if you wanted at the Lost Boys Cafe. Very cool.

The service is amazing at the rental shop in the hill. If you’re staying at Lizard Creek there’s one right by the ski out door. They are very exact and will find the perfect fit for your kids. They ask for their weight age... More
