About  The Qanuk

The Full Story

Think of a snowflake; That’s what Qanuk means in Inuit. We intentionally built our gorgeous, ski-in, ski-out property in Fernie near the Deer Chair ski lift so our guests have immediate access to all the adventures the Elk Valley has to offer!

Built in 2020, The Qanuk has been awarded “Super Host Status” by Airbnb, meaning it is one of the best vacation rentals in Fernie. The ski-in, ski-out function was only part of our vision, which was to create a property that could provide a large group of guests with the amenities they have at home and then some, right in the heart of the Rockies. Our modern mountain palace offers indoor and outdoor comfort and entertainment for all ages. Guests can use it as a base camp for winter skiing, spring and summer hiking and biking, and autumn fly fishing. You won’t find more convenient or luxurious accommodations in Fernie!

The Concept

Family or friends can indulge themselves in the warmth of a 6-person hot tub, challenge one another in a ping pong tournament or vie for dominance at the pool table. Just ten minutes up the road in the cozy town of Fernie, you can swing your drivers and putters for 18 holes at the golf club.

When you stay at the Qanuk, we don’t want you to have any reason to think about your home or work life. Not only can you ski in and ski out right near the Fernie Alpine Resort, but you can immerse yourself in a paradise of mountains, lush forests, whitewater rivers, and glassy lakes that you’ll wish you stay forever.

We built The Qanuk with a unique and accommodating layout: two levels of similar design, and easy access to a walkout basement and a patio with a grill.

Each level offers you:

    • Master suite with a queen bed
    • Bedroom with one bunk bed
    • Second bedroom with two twin beds
    • Full kitchen
    • Living and dining rooms

Each level includes free high-speed internet, smart and cable TV, and the convenience of in-suite laundry.

We want you to think of The Qanuk as your perfect “get-away-from-it-all.” Whether gathering with friends for some bonding time or bringing family together for a long overdue reunion, our hidden treasure in the heart of the Canadian Rockies is your oasis for relaxation, exploration, and adventure. You won’t find a more modern or private ski-in, ski-out vacation rental in Fernie. Book your stay at The Qanuk today!
