Welcome to Canada’s ski bum capital

Encircled by towering mountains and granite cliffs, Fernie is British Columbia’s self-confessed ski bum capital. It’s tucked away in the Elk Valley and is famously laidback.

Today, Fernie Alpine Resort is one of Canada’s most coveted snow sports destinations. If you’re planning a winter escape, Fernie vacation rentals are the perfect way to keep your group together. The town is just as enchanting in the summer, when legions of hikers and mountain bikers take over the slopes.

Just north of the town is Mount Fernie Provincial Park. There are hikes for all fitness levels, as well as camping, hiking, and some of the best fishing in the Kootenays. If you’re craving a culture fix, head to the Fernie Museum for a colorful overview of the forests, wildfires, and floods that have shaped the town. Just down the road is the Fernie Arts Co-op, a cavernous gallery showcasing painting, pottery, jewelry, handicrafts and more.


Relaxed vibes on Victoria Avenue
