In Fernie, life revolves around the vast amounts of powder that accumulate in and around this high mountain valley – everyone skis or snowboards here.

Fernie Alpine Resort is the local ski hill and it boasts big bowls and chutes for skiing and snowboarding.

The locals have an unofficial rule: when there's 20cm/8in or more of new snow overnight, the meeting moves to the mountain. With an average annual snowfall of 8.8m/29ft of snow, does anyone ever go to work?

Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie Alpine Resort spreads out under the rocky crest of the Lizard Range and was tagged #6 of North America's 15 best ski resorts by Outside, a US adventure travel magazine.
