I went to Fernie first in 2010 for hotdog day and absolutely loved it! It was the best spring skiing, the sun was shining and there was a fantastic live band outside in the village! I went again this December 2012 - it ended up being a 40cm powder day and turned out to be 60+ cm weekend!! It was absolute bliss!! Especially sitting in the outdoor hottub at Lizard Creek Lodge after a perfect ski day on the slopes. I'll definitely be going there again soon!
