The Qanuk Fernie — Edmonton

Edmonton is a beautiful place, but even if you live on a gorgeous plot of property near the Saskatchewan River, there are still times when you need to escape the hustle-and-bustle lifestyle of the city. When you feel like getting away from it all, pack a week’s worth of clothes, a bathing suit, and aim your car down Highway 2 until you land at The Qanuk Lodge in the Fernie Alpine Resort, British Columbia.

Our ski resort and mountain lodge near Edmonton is your paradise away from home. If you’re staying during the winter, you can enjoy fresh powder the minute you’re ready with our ski-in, ski-out access. Known throughout the world, the Lizard Range from November to April offers some of the best powder and terrain in all of Canada. With more than 142 runs, you can downhill or cross-country ski for a whole week and never cross the same trail. In the evenings, you can retreat to our cozy resort that features an array of modern amenities. Challenge your friends and family to games of foosball, pool, or darts in a 111-square-meter recreation basement, or relax with a glass of wine in the hot tub on the adjoining deck.

Your entire suite includes:

  • Master suite with a queen bed
  • Bedroom with two twin beds
  • Bedroom with a bunk bed
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Living room
  • Dining room

Our ski resort and mountain lodge near Edmonton is open all year long, because no matter the season, there is always something to do here in our own “Shangri La” in the Canadian Rockies.

Then, for the rest of the week (or longer!), you can fill your soul with adventures, fine food, and alpine vistas that take your breath away. Book your family vacation from Edmonton today.

Our Guest Reviews

This is the place to stay! Just walk across the street to the hills to ski and snowboard, and after hours you can take the kids sliding there as well! The house itself has 2 kitchens and 6 complete bedrooms (2 are amazingly beautiful master bedrooms)! The games room in the basement is great for all ages and the hot tub is great!


This place is fantastic. Directly across from the hill (you can take the t bar up to get your lift tickets if you haven’t gotten them in advance). Games room in the basement was awesome and definitely didn’t expect it to be decked out the way it was. The layout was great, and the house has everything you would need to enjoy your stay, including multiple glove and boot warming setups. Definitely check this place out if you are looking for a place to stay close to the hill.


Exceeded our expectations!! Way bigger in person! The top two floors are duplicates of each other, multiple bedrooms, stunning master suites and two full kitchens on both floors. Both floors equipped with washer & dryer and their own climate control. 4 decks! Bottom one being incredibly huge with the hot tub. Basement/hot tub floor entrance is entirely the game room, pool table and bar seating area with mini keg access! Would 10/10 recommend and stay again!
