Spacious yet cosy and comfortable, Snow Lake House is only a six minute warm-up walk from the ski base area (with a ski locker at the Day Lodge). Over 3600 square feet of flexible accommodation with great amenities including an eight person hot tub, 8' pool table, TV room and large dining area. (Floor-plans are available by email).
All 10 guests can be accommodated in proper beds in the 5 bedrooms.
After a long day on the slopes there is nothing better than to climb into the hot-tub and take in the spectacular views of Lizard and Currie Bowls.
Alternatively head downstairs and have a game of pool, or watch your favourite Blu-ray or dvd movies on the 46 inch TV. Or perhaps you would prefer to just play your iTunes music by streaming it wirelessly from your device into the stereo and enjoy the company of friends and family in the spacious living areas.
There are five bedrooms arranged as follows:
Bedroom 1 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill. Bedroom 2 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with bath and separate shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill. Bedroom 3 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, balcony with views across valley. Bedroom 4 - downstairs, comprising double bed with a single above (so either a couple or two singles), sharing a separate bathroom with bedroom 5; Bedroom 5 - two single beds.
Payment accepted in Canadian Dollars, US Dollars, or British Pounds - ask for revised quotes.
Sorry, but no pets allowed and no smoking. We do not rent to vacationing students or groups of singles under the age of 27. The bedrooms are arranged to suit couples or families or mixed groups of couples and singles, and so the house is not suited to large groups of singles. Hence no bachelor / stag / bachelorette / stagette / hen parties.

About the owner: Anna & Mike spent a long time looking for their ideal mountain retreat, and immediately felt at home in Snow Lake House. Zoom-in on the map to see how close the house is to the ski base!
Why the Owner Chose Fernie: We wanted a house on a great ski hill but we also wanted a real community town to go with it. It also needed to be within three hours drive of Calgary for friends and family. We found that Fernie ticked all the boxes for us in 2009, and we love it even more today.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It is only a short warm-up walk to the ski base area, about 6 minutes (i.e. closer than some of the car-parks - zoom-in on the map to compare).
We also have a ski locker at the Day Lodge for storing skis, so you do not need to carry them and can carry your ski boots and store your shoes.
The views are even more spectacular in the summer, as the garden leads down to the lake with the mountains dominating the skyline above.
