Fernie chalet description

This beautiful log chalet is located just a few minutes walk to the ski lifts of Fernie Alpine Resort with ski to the door convenience. Log beds, pine floor, and woodburning fireplace add to the charm of our Black Bear Chalet. In fact, we adopted a stuffed black bear from Fernie Mountain while we were building our home and he is still present as the keeper of our chalet.

Our chalet is ideal for large families or groups who love to cook and socialize around our large kitchen table, built by one of the owners. In the summer large decks, barbecue, and a commercial hot tub aid to the enjoyment of the secluded property with flora and fauna in abundance. Firepit overlooking the lake at the back of the property makes you feel like you are back to nature. A little piece of Canadian paradise!

                      Car: Recommended

                      Fernie, British Columbia has developed into a year round recreation site. Nestled in a valley and surrounded by rugged peaks, the picturesque City of Fernie lies 5 km (3 miles) east of the Fernie Alpine Resort where our chalet is located.

                      Known for its phenomenal skiing, Fernie has also grown to be a year round recreation site. Whether it is skiing on the 875 cm (that's almost 27 feet) of snow that Fernie gets yearly or enjoying a river raft or golf game at one of the 5 nearby courses. Fernie has it all!

                      Golf: There are six top notch golf courses within 15 to 60 minute drive including:

                      - Fernie Golf Course

                      - Trickle Creek Golf Course

                      - Boot Leg Gap Golf Course

                      - St. Eugene Mission

                      - Kimberly Golf Course

                      - Cranbrook Golf Course

                      Ski: Ski lifts or Runs can be reached by walking for 5 minute(s). Located right on the ski hill. After a day of skiing, you can ski right to the door of the chalet.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1991

                      About the owner: Myles, brother Colin and wife Lana Radchenko built the Black Bear Chalet in 1990. Our first season of rentals was in 1991, and we have been renting it ever since. Our guests enjoy all seasons throughout the year in this vacation paradise. Myles Radchenko is a biology high school teacher, originally from Swift Current, now located in Yellowknife, NWT. Lana & Colin Radchenko are originally from Saskatoon, and now are located in San Diego. Lana is a chartered accountant working for Sempra Energy. Colin is the head PGA professional at Steele Canyon Golf Course. Also pictured is our dog, Lacey.

                      Why the Owner Chose Fernie:
                      As avid skiiers, we first fell in love with Fernie because of the DEEP powder snow in the winter season. Later, we learned Fernie is a great place to be all year around - skiing, snowboarding, ski-doing, fishing, rafting, and of course, golf!
