Local News – What’s New at Fernie Alpine Resort

We are looking forward to an exciting 2008/09 ski season!

2007/08 brought 1,118cm (37 feet) of fluffy, fabulous powder to Fernie Alpine Resort.

Don’t forget to purchase your Fernie Season’s Pass before October 18, 2008 and take advantage of early season savings.

We have had a busy summer making a number of improvements all over the mountain!

Getting your friends and family here is now easier!
We are pleased to announce new direct air service on Delta Airlines between Salt Lake City and the Canadian Rockies International Airport in Cranbrook, BC. Three flights a week will commence service on December 17, 2008.
More Tree Skiing!
Some of this summer’s glading projects included KC Chutes, Cedar Ridge, Currie Glades and Stagleap, with more lines being cut in Mitchy Chutes.
Daylodge Enhancements
Significant renovations and upgrades are being made to the dayldoge flooring, downstairs bathrooms, locker area, and Griz Bar.
New Run
Explore Fernie's 113th run, called "Cougar Glades". It will be located skier's right of Stagleap.
No More Drips
New galvanized haul rope has been installed on the Deer and Elk Chairs, which should go a long way in reducing the grease stains that appear below the lift towers and on clothing.
Ridge Line Project
The installation of a new safety system will allow our Safety team the ability to get into key terrain to conduct control work on a more regular and safe basis. For you, it means more great terrain open sooner on those heavy snowfall days! Further, 2 avalanche status boards will be added on the mountain to keep you well informed of open/closed areas on powder days.
Ski-in/Ski-out Parking
An area near the FAST ski club hut has been converted to parking spaces, allowing more parking room and the ability to ski down to the Timber Express and ski back to your vehicle at the end of your day.
More Snow in High Traffic Areas
Fernie Alpine Resort is adding another Techno Alpine snowmaking tower, allowing the mountain to make lots of snow in higher traffic areas.
Rest In Style
A new bathroom will be installed at the bottom of the Haul Back lift.
Bonus Weekend - April 18 and 19
We have extended the ski season and throwing a spring ski party! Enjoy an extra weekend of skiing, including a village party, live music and more!
