6 Bedroom/ 4 Bathroom Chalet with Spectacular views of Fernie Alpine Resort

This Chalet offers incredible views of the Rocky Mountains that are enjoyed throughout this timber frame home situated on the ski hill, that is a short walk to the lifts and you can ski home right to the door! Guests staying at the chalet are inspired by an open concept that brings the “outside in”. Our mountain chalet is your opportunity to experience the beautiful surroundings of Fernie, British Columbia, Canada. Known for its “Legendary Champagne Powder”. As the owner, the chalet was purchased for skiing however, we have fallen in love with the summer outdoor activities such as mountain biking, hiking, rafting and golfing! Fernie is now considered a year round recreation destination where the natural landscape contributes to positive energy and relaxation.

Our timber frame chalet has been modernized, and is of high quality throughout. It sleeps 12 people comfortably, 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, open concept great room, hot tub, BBQ, fully-equipped kitchen, gas fireplace and a lounge area with spectacular views!

About Donna Biddell

I am a Canadian that grew up skiing and wanted to pass my love of the mountains on to my children. I have named our Chalet DB's as I have recently become the sole owner! Our family has enjoyed many years creating memories together both summer and winter here so needless to say this is our "happy place"! This property brings the 'outside-in' from all levels of the Chalet that is both inspirational and calming to all who visit! We purchased this property for our passion to ski however, we have fallen in love with what the summer has to offer!

Donna Biddell purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Donna Biddell chose Fernie

This Chalet is one of the best locations on the ski resort, of course I am biased! It is very private with unobstructed views that are breathtaking of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! This is our families 'happy place' and we are excited to share it to others. The main area of the house is set up for socializing while the top and bottom floor provides space to relax and rest. The Chalet is fully set up to support large gatherings and is modernized. A private 8 person hot tub is located on the lower level perfectly situated to enjoy the fantastic scenery.

What makes this chalet unique

Our family fell in love with the amazing views this Chalet offers! Over the years we have enjoyed hosting other families and friends to share in creating the wonderful memories that we have created here! This property provides the perfect setting to relax together as a family and inspire each of us to enjoy the moments we share!

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This chalet fit our needs perfectly. Lots of open space and ski out right to the back door. Hot tub is a bit small (6 person) but still did the job.

Will stay again.

Great ski home! Nice open concept living, dining, kitchen area. Kitchen was well equiped. Bbq and great hot tub with a beautiful view of the mountain.7 adults and everyone had their own bedroom except for one couple. easy mountain access. Walk up to mountain approximately 5-7 minutes and ski back snow conditions permitting. We had unusually warm temps which melted part of the path but we were still able to get home on skiis . The owner was very accommodating with our arrival time, answered any questions we had and was nice enough to suggest restaurants. I would definitely recommend this home. Hope to get back there!

Great location. Very private with nice view.

  • 5 of 5

I had a great holiday with girlfriends and we had separate beds for all six of us. There is lots of room and the deck is a good size to sit and relax with a nice view and privacy with no one behind you. Close enough to Fernie to run in for dinner or groceries. Couldn't have gone to a more perfect place for our group.

Had an excellent stay in Fernie. We couldn't have asked for better conditions. The house was beautiful and fit our four small families comfortably.

Fernie offers the perfect powder to enjoy during the winter but is also an amazing summer destination! Our Chalet is located on the Fernie Alpine Resort and offers spectacular views of the 5 unique bowls that have an annual snowfall of over 29ft. with varied terrain. A perfect location that is a short walk to the lifts situated on the ski-out so that you can ski home at the end of a great day! The town of Fernie is a short 7 km drive from the Chalet where you can enjoy many restaurants, shopping, arts/culture and other activities such as golf, swimming, wellness/spa, yoga and much more.
