Fernie’s laid-back charm has a way of making everyone feel welcome here. Families love the long cruisers, Saturday night skiing, and kids’ tree trails off the Deer Chair. Pow-seekers know that Fernie’s eastern B.C. location ensures plenty of dry, light Canadian Rockies fluff. And everyone appreciates quaint Fernie, a former coal-mining boomtown where you can hang with locals at the Griz, Fernie Brewing Co., and The Brickhouse.
