Fernie, British Columbia is located a short drive from Calgary Alberta, in the heart of the Kootenays. The picturesque town is nestled in the Elk Valley and offers spectacular four season activities. The small town of 5,000 residents is surrounded by the towering mountains, untamed wilderness and offers unparelled powder skiing.

The reputation of Fernie Alpine Resort, included in our Rocky Mountain Rager Ski Package, as the steepest, deepest mountain in the Rockies is spreading for a reason…its true. The mountain receives over 28 feet of snowfall annually and is made up 3 main bowls. Neck high powder in Fernie is not uncommon.

The Good Skiing & Snowboarding Guide 2004 has voted Fernie Alpine Resort the North American “Resort of the Year” in the annual Golden Ski Awards for 2004.

The largest selling English-language ski guide in the world, the Good Skiing & Snowboarding Guide is an annual ‘warts and all’ guide to 700 resorts worldwide. The book, now in its eleventh year, is published by Which Books of the U.K. and is regarded as the ‘bible’ of the ski industry in Britain and Europe.

These annual awards are highly prestigious and are known in the U.K. as the ‘white oscars’ of skiing. These Golden Ski Awards are given in twelve categories including resorts, hotels, restaurants, etc. After nominating a Top 100, the readers vote and the finalists are judged by a small jury of ski industry experts.

“Fernie has joined the ranks of the top ski destinations in the world with this award,” says Melody Kultgen, sales & public relations manager for the resort. She adds, “last year this award was given to Aspen and our European couterpart this year is St. Anton.”

Fernie is only 3 hours from Calgary International Airport and an hour away from Cranbrook BC, and is fully serviced by all modes of transportation.
