The Qanuk Fernie — Calgary

Cozied up against the foot of the Lizard Range mountains in British Columbia, along a meandering trail in the Fernie Alpine Resort, your fabulous vacation at The Qanuk is just a three-hour jaunt from Calgary. Most folks familiar with Fernie know about the usual 37 inches of powder during the ski season, and the ski-in, ski-out convenience of The Qanuk. But our Calgary-serving mountain lodge has a secret: It’s open year-round and offers lodging for groups that can accommodate up to 10 adults and six children so that families can gather together and enjoy the seasonal adventures that bring life, laughter, and excitement to the Elk Valley area.

The Qanuk was designed with two similar levels, each with easy access to a walkout basement where you can stage a foosball tournament, rack up a game of eight ball, or play a relaxed round of darts. The adjoining patio is equipped with a grill for outdoor cooking.
