I'm planning ahead for next year. Have the possibility of going to Fernie. Anyone been? Opinions?

Yup, been skiing here for over 30 years now. Conditions are quite good now despite the unusually low snowpack. I wouldn't advise coming at christmas as conditions can be pretty sketchy. In general the last 2 weeks in Feb and the first 2 in March are a pretty good bet as far as conditions go.

If it was me I would book rooms in town rather than on resort. Not only are they cheaper, there is more to do in town as far as nightlife and restaurants. It is only a 10 minute drive to the hill and there is a good shuttle service.

Also if your looking for other skiing options I would suggest booking a cat skiing trip with Fernie Wilderness Adventures.

My opinion is that if you are going to Fernie you are very lucky.
My sister was there today - had a great time.

The only caution is that it does rain occassionally!!! But when it snows it snows. I've been sking Fernie for 10 years and have talked to a lot of unhappy visiters due to the rain. But if you hit it right your in for a great time!!
