The terrain at Fernie is uniquely suited to take full advantage of the abundance of snow. Five vast, glorious alpine bowls spill down from the serrated limestone ridge of the Lizard Range.

Fernie skiers and riders are still talking about the new Polar Peak lift, installed 2011/12 ski season, it increases the resort’s vertical by 222 metres (740 ft) to a substantial 1,065 m (3,550 ft). And, the Polar Peak lift provides skiers and boarders access to the ‘above treeline’ experience off the summit of one of the highest peaks in the Lizard Range. This new area has added over 20 new runs for the resort.
