Full review

We justr finished an early season ski touring trip and made some early season powder turns at Fernie Alpine Resort! We can't wait to return- the snow is already deep and the resort is opening early this winter with La Nina bringing loads of snow in! Also checked out the new Polar Peak lift- this will be a huge benefit to intermediate and advanced skiers- not only for those who already love Fernie but for those who have not been as now the time to check this lift out. Game changer- as makes Fernie the biggest vertical in the Rockies. We stay on the cheap- in town or at Wolfs Den and then we also visit town as great options to eat and only 5 minutes from ski area- cool place
