Trip Ideas: Fernie Alpine Resort, British Columbia

Fernie’s a big-kid playground. Now go play.

WHY: Fernie’s a big-kid playground. The resort’s five bowls and forested ridges hide gullies, wind lips, tree gaps, rolls, kickers, and other juicy terrain features. Duck into the trees and explore.

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE: Take your pick from the three runs pitching off Boomerang Ridge to the base area, but don’t stick to the piste. Look for abundant openings in the trees. The backcountry here is all a short traverse away. But when the conditions are right, Mammoth’s Head, a three-to-four-hour ski tour from Fernie, holds mini Alaskan-style lines, and you can ski back inbounds at the end.

LOCAL SECRET: In April, Island Lake Cat Skiing opens its legendary terrain to cat-assisted ski touring.
