About Richard and Sue

We (Sue and Richard) hail from Southwestern Ontario and Trinidad respectively, and currently make Toronto our home. Our blended family of four children, all in their twenties, are now leaving the nest one by one. We are an eclectic group of avid skiers/snowboarders, swimmers, scuba divers, hikers, sailors, musicians, food and wine lovers!

Richard and Sue purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Richard and Sue chose Fernie

We vacationed in Fernie in 2000, and fell in love with the hometown feel and friendliness of this small and historic mining community which offered the best powder skiing in Canada.

Polar Peak is a magical place for us, nestled amongst the pines and firs at the Fernie Alpine Resort. By day it is a great base for the many activities offered in Fernie and the Elk Valley. By night it is engulfed by a wondrous canopy of stars so bright that you realize that the universe has taken extra special care to create this unique and unspoiled mecca. It is a place to re-balance, to pursue the joy of life (and its real priorities!), and enjoy family and friends.

Our favourite outings – apart from fabulous skiing (Oh... what powder!!!), hiking the Lost Boys Pass along the ridge to Polar Peaks or the trails around Island Lake Lodge, and thereafter enjoying a BBQ with friends. Farther afield, hiking Glacier and Waterton National Parks.

awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Condo exceeded our expectations. It had plenty of space for the 6 adults, and the two kids enjoyed the bunk beds and foosball table in lower level. It was convenient to town and an easy walk to resort. The owners were very helpful and provided a lot of good information about things to do in Fernie. There was plenty of parking for our three vehicles and neighbors were nice. Hope to go back soon.

Great Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations in an excellent location! We stayed here for the weekend on a ski trip. It was a short 5 minute walk to the lifts/restaurants/spa at the base of the mountain. Private setting. Short drive into town if need be. Place was spacious and clean, beds were comfortable and hot tub was great! Owners were very attentive and even called to check how we were doing and if we needed anything. Definitely would recommend this place !!

Wedding vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location to the mountain, very short walk. Very spacious, never felt crowded. I had 8 girls, two mothers and 2 toddlers for the morning of my wedding getting ready and I never felt crowded. Lots of stairs so had to block them off for my toddler. Tons of dishes, cups, plates! The owners were great to deal with, answered any questions very quickly and checked in to make sure everything was good. Also the hot tub was AMAZING.

Fantastic Fernie find!!!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Fernie for a ski trip and are so happy we did.

This home was perfect for our medium sized group. We liked the private setting - end unit along a tree lined trail.

It is only a short walk to the lifts and the alpine resort - and a short drive to Fernie.

We loved being able to ski home to the private hot tub.

The kitchen layout is great for entertaining. We cooked most meals and appreciated that the kitchen was well equipped. Nice living room with bluetooth stereo.

This place is very clean with all the necessities you would need (bath towels and hot tub towels).

Couldn't have asked for better hosts who checked in with us and helped make our trip an unforgettable experience!

Highly recommend staying here. Thank you so much!

We try to keep the kitchen and facilities as current as possible. Feel free to call on us again when you get tired of the snow at Whistler :) Cheers

Fernie ski week

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four freinds from Ontario have skied and stayed at several resorts together in Western Canada over the years. Polar Peaks was a big hit with the gang for its space, amenities and location. Richard was always helpful, even updating me on road conditions on our travel day.

Ski out was a breeze. Ski in was a short walk which was pretty much the same distance as for those parking in the nearby resort lot.

The hot tub was clean and outside but covered. The foosball table provided great fun. The kitchen and bedrooms were excellent.

Most importantly, there were no surprises that were not good ones.

What a great accomadation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full week at Polar Peak #4 and had an amazing time. The unit had space for all 7 of us comfortably, an excellent kitchen with everything we needed to make delicious meals every morning & night and a very nice area for all of us to enjoy conversation after an another great day of skiing.

A short 5 minute walk brought us to the Timber chair every morning and then skied right back to the front door at the end of the ski day on the mountain. And then being able to relax, and recuperate, in the hot tub put the icing on the cake of our incredible stay.

Finally, I want to thank the owners for their excellent advice and suggestions which helped in making our trip so fantastic. With suggestions we had everything we needed when we arrived, ate gourmet meals every night with excellent wine.

When I come back to Fernie I will want to stay here again!
