Fernie, British Columbia
Located in south-east British Columbia, and a 3-hour drive from Calgary, Alberta, Fernie has been welcoming ski and board fanatics to its glorious mountains since 1963.
Fernie offers the very best of what a “small town – big mountain” destinations represents. The feeling in Fernie is casual, cool, and devoid of that corporate resort influence that mountain towns often suffer from. If you are a mountain enthusiast looking for outdoor adventure with some Fernie is just the place for you.
And if adventure is not really your thing, the town is funky and charming and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Walk through Fernie, breath in the mountain air, enjoy the very “real” community with its local shops, great restaurants or aquatics center, and learn about its storied history through the museum, library, art station and the late 1800’s architecture.
