Fernie is defined by the towering Rocky Mountains and the freestone clear water Elk River. River runners, powder hounds, bikers and wilderness aficionados love it here as outdoor opportunities are endless. In town, Fernie's architecture is a feast of 19th century brick and stonework. Wood was banned as a building material in the early-1900s after a fire leveled all but 23 of the town's buildings. An interpretive walking tour and a trip to the Historical Museum lends visitors insight on a community steeped in historical associations and mountain culture.
Fernie's renowned 18-hole golf course is located in view of some spectacular mountain peaks and for a faster paced activity, mountain bike trails wind their way around town and up the mountain at the Fernie Alpine Bike Park. Fernie has some of the finest powder snow which many enjoy at the Resort, and with Fernie Wilderness and Island Lake Snowcat Ski operators.
