with a wide variety of groomed runs. For starters, take a complimentary tour
to learn your way around this complex mountain. Off the piste, there are a

Visitor Reviews of Fernie

john from Canada writes:

Overall, Fernie is a good mountain that gets dumped with snow sometimes. Rarely ever happens. I went 5 times last year and had really crappy days. Would often rain, the lifts were slow and would often stop for long periods of time. Don't waste your time at Fernie.
