Family ski holiday
Family ski holiday
What a great ski chalet.! Was really impressed with the quality of fixtures, fittings and linens and the extra touches such as the fairy lights and rocking bench on the balcony. There was plenty of storage space and everything we needed in the kitchen. We made good use of the hot tub and BBQ! True ski in and out. Loved the chalet so much we came back for lunch most days and ate in in the evenings. Resort was perfect too - virtually had the slopes and ski school to ourselves - unheard of in Europe! Highly recommend this chalet as a great base for a family ski holiday.

Hi Christine, I just wanted to say thank you and tell you how much we enjoyed the house. The ski in/out access was great and we really enjoyed the hot tub. The ski conditions were poor the Saturday but Sunday was good. We hadn’t been there in 15 years and the place has really changed. Anyway, thanks again. We will keep your contact information handy for next year.

Perfect for Summer Relaxation
Perfect for Summer Relaxation
We found this accommodation to be perfect for relaxing after our back country camping trip and a full day on the Elk River. The unit is clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and everything was as we expected. The location would be ideal for winter skiing too. "Thumbs up!"

There is not enough that can be said about this fabulous accommodation and the magnificent area in which it is situated. The owners have left no detail unattended and you will be hard pressed to find accommodation so well appointed anywhere else. We were amazed to find an abundance of cooking utensils and linens stocked in this elegant, tastefully decorated condo. The pristinely maintained hot tub situated on the deck surrounded by trees, gorgeous gardens and mountains, was the perfect end to a perfect day spent hiking fabulous trails and enjoying magnificent vistas in every direction. We can't possibly say enough about this super accommodation and the fabulous owners who accommodated our every need. Look no further, this is it!

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Our family has been skiing in Fernie since 1993. In 1998, ski hill property came up for sale and we had to buy our dream ski in and ski out location. We built Alpenhaus in 2000 and have enjoyed not only the fabulous powder winters but also the all year outdoor experience. Fernie and the Elk Valley is all about such fishing, floating in the Elk River, Hiking, Biking, and generally enjoying our enormuous back yard. Our kids grew up skiing and playing here as a great family getaway. Tubing down the Elk River is one of the summer highlights. Fernie offers privacy in a beautiful mountain setting and is the best way to enjoy family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Fernie:
Fernie is just a 3 hours away from the Calgary airport or 1 hr away from the Cranbrook airport. It is a perfect ski get away location. The average snow fall per year is 8 to 9 meters. You are guaranteed great skiing as there are so many options on this amazing ski hill. Skiing in for lunch or at the end of the day is an added bonus, especially for family members where there is bound to be a range of ski/boarding agendas. We thought skiing was the ultimate, however, the year we built our place was when we came to learn how beautiful a summer location Fernie is as well. From scenary weather hiking or golfing, whatever your choice, your workout is enhanced by the beautiful surroundings.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy our gourmet kitchen with plenty of space for cooking and entertaining. The hottub the private deck provides fun and relaxation for everyone, this is serviced during your stay, so the only responsibility is to enjoy. The view from the front or back is breath taking, quiet, green and very lush with huge Cedars and Larch trees. Look for the Mountain blue jays and hummingbirds who love to hover and feed.
