We just enjoyed 5 days of skiing and family fun at Fernie Alpine Resort. Some tips to enjoy Fernie for your family - don't be fooled by the few that say Fernie is great for experts... it is but there is amazing beginner and intermediate skiing as well. We found a green or blue run off every lift for our daughter. She enjoyed skiing with us the entire day!
We also suggest playing a great family game - Ski the 5 Alpine Bowls! Fernie Alpine Resort in Southeastern, British Columbia has huge terrain that feature 5 Alpine Bowls. Some fun names too- Lizard Bowl, Curry Bowl etc. Over 2500 acres of terrain will keep your kids entertained all week!
We also enjoyed the recent Helly Hansen Big Mountain Challenge which had 30 teams roaming the mountain to find check-points. Throw in a ski in/ski out cabin, some good family friendly dining, dog-sledding and fun family activities - like our favorite geo-caching, and the horse drawn sleigh ride to the cowboy barn and you have an amazing family destination!
