Visitor Reviews of Fernie

wes from Spain writes:

Went to Fernie several years ago for its mythical powder for 2 weeks and didn't see the sun once. Gave up after 5 days not being able to ski and hired a pick up truck and explored the hot springs instead. I have since had some of the best powder skiing here in Spain of all places. Will not be going back to Fernie.
