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 East Kootenay A
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.

Beautiful place with an excellent location!
First and foremost, thank you Richard and Sue. Your townhouse was the perfect accommodation for our group. Despite having seven people in our party, never once did it feel crowded. The townhouse was a very cozy place for everyone to enjoy. Being able to ski right to the back door made the end of day that much more enjoyable. During our stay we had tons of fresh snow, it was an ideal weekend to visit. After a long day of snowboarding and skiing it was nice to return to a place that felt like home. We prepared delicious meals and cold beverages, all after a long soak in the hot tub to sooth or muscles. I wish we could have stayed longer, thanks again so much for your hospitality. The communication throughout was great, the place was very clean, and it had everything we needed. We will be in touch around the same time next year, it was a blast. Cheers!
Fabulous family ski vacation
This was our second, but not our last, trip to Richard and Sue's mountain home.
The location was perfect for our two families, as it was a very short walk to the hill with an easy ski out at the end of the day. The home was spacious, with a wonderful room downstairs for the older kids with foosball, tv, bunks and bathroom. Top two floors were perfectly outfitted with a well-equipped kitchen, dining and living areas, three bedrooms , and one powder room and two full bathrooms...plenty of room for us all to be comfortable together yet have enough privacy. The new hot tub was a great treat for all at the end of the day. Richard and Sue could not have been more helpful and welcoming. When we arrived, the hot tub was not working, but Richard arranged to have it fixed within an hour. We felt our comfort was important to them, and we look forward to returning soon.
Great location and amenities!
This property exceeded our overall expectations. We all had enough space with the four bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. The bunk beds were great for the kids! The place was well stocked with all the usual amenities and more. The hot tub was very clean and worked well. We never had any issues at all as everything was clean and organized. I would recommend this location if you ever plan to ski in Fernie!
Well stocked and located nice and close to the hill
We enjoyed our stay and polar peak 4. Would stay here again for sure! Great Hot tub and BBQ as well.
You're very welcome Ian. Please visit us again any time. It's unfortunate that there wasn't more powder during your visit. All the best.
Polar Peaks #4
Polar Peaks #4 is very well equipped, better than most, and has nice appliances. Bedding, towels, etc are all top notch. We really enjoyed the hot tub after skiing hard all day. Communication with the owner is also better than most, everything was clear, timely and understandable. Richard has obviously been doing this for a while and has ironed out any kinks. It didn't hurt that our stay coincided with some legendary Fernie powder and afforded fantastic skiing.
We were a group of 6 Adults, there was plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. The unit was very clean and well cared for. We would look to come back in the future. Excellent communication with the owner. Fantastic location close to the hill!
