About the property

A large luxury chalet in Fernie Alpine Resort with excellent facilities

The Space: In this chalet on the ski hill you can experience a luxury vacation at one of the finest homes at the Fernie Alpine Resort. The location of the home is superb being set in its own grounds with easy access to both the resort centre and the slopes. The house has recently undergone a complete and extensive refurbishment and now has the finest quality fixtures, fittings and furniture. The interior of the chalet is full of character with a ski lodge feel and warm comfortable furniture. It has a lovely mixture of traditional with modern and is beautifully furnished throughout. A must for those who enjoy a little comfort and style when on vacation or holiday. You may never want to leave this house. However, be prepared for wildlife. The owners and neighbours of this house have seen (on the front lawn and at the rear of the property) deer, black bears and even a moose which took a liking to the hot tub area.

Guest Access:There are four large bedrooms. Each room has a large king size, queen size or double bed (they are very comfortable). The main bedroom has an en suite and a pull out sofa bed. One of the other bedrooms also has a set of bunk beds. There is a large kitchen with modern appliances (even a TV) and a breakfast bench. There are lounge and dining areas and it even has an indoor heated swimming pool, a steam room, a sauna, a hot tub and a games room with every toy you could want from pinball machines and pool to arcade games. This substantial property sits on its own grounds with unencumbered forest at the rear of the house.

The Neighborhood: This premium substantial ski chalet beckons the discerning winter sports lover. Fernie Alpine Resort offers some of the most challenging skiing anywhere in Canada and has an amazing snow record with over 12m falling on average ever season. Originally a mining town, the ski hill (where you will find this stunning vacation home) is located just 4km out of the historic town and offers wide, well managed slopes alongside some fierce off-piste areas and steep chutes. Its beauty has provided the film location for several Hollywood films including John Cusack’s Hot Tub Time Machine and the Christmas film Santa Pups 2. It is also a tremendous place to stay in the summer and there is plenty to do, from mountain biking to zip-lining, from golf to fishing. At the rear of the property is a deck that overlooks the forest at the rear, complete with barbeque.

Getting Around: There is parking at the house. The house is on the ski hill so it is a short walk (or very short drive) to the ski village.

The overall impression of the property was amazing. I don't think there is a nicer place around.

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great. The property management company helped out when we couldn't access the lock box. The place had everything you needed and then some. We are already talking about going back in the winter months for some snowboarding now.

Fantastic accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying so close to the ski hill. We didn’t need to venture far for a good time. The house has everything you need. When we arrived it was clean and tidy.

This chalet is definitely as advertised. It is beautiful and spacious, and was everything we were looking for. Would book here again for sure. Didn't hurt that we got dumped on and had legendary snow conditions on the hill.

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. Entertained our huge group ranging in age with no complaints. Well equipped with everything we needed and lots of space In the kitchen for multiple people cooking and cleaning. The beds were comfy and the bedrooms spread out nice. We found ourselves a little cold but there was plenty of fire wood to keep the fire going and make it cozy. The kids loved the pool and games room, with the adults enjoying some competitive game time after the kids went to bed. We took for granted the close proximity to the hill, no rushing to be the first ones getting a parking spot.

We would all love to go back!
