The Qanuk Seattle
Get Away From It All in Fernie, BC
Pick any season of the year—breathtaking adventures and stunning scenery await you at The Qanuk in Fernie, British Columbia. During the winter months, our quiet piece of paradise is a ski-in-ski-out lodge for world-class downhill and cross country-skiing, without the lines you have to endure in other parts of the province. But what we offer goes a lot further than our 37 inches of pristine powder on uncrowded bowls and slopes. We are your alpine home away from home in a mecca for outdoor recreation just south of Fernie, a historic mountain town with fine dining, great beer, and unique shopping. When you need a break from Seattle, our ski in ski out resort is here for you and your family.
something for everyone
a cozy home away from home
The Qanuk is nestled beneath the Lizard Range of the Canadian Rockies, just a 9-hour drive from Seattle up highways 95 and 93, with a short jaunt along the Crowsnest Highway (Hwy/BC-3 E) to the front door of your alpine basecamp for an extended stay filled with excitement and relaxation. If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Seattle, our ski resort and mountain lodge is the best place to do it!
With 3,600 square feet of luxurious living, The Qanuk can comfortably accommodate several families (10 adults and 6 children) or your group for a business retreat. Complete with a full kitchen, a basement recreation area, an outdoor patio and grill, and a hot tub, you can use. Our ski resort and mountain lodge is your Seattle escape for spring and summertime nature hikes, mountain biking, kayaking, white water river rafting, and fishing the pristine waters of the many lakes and rivers that are just minutes away from your room. The Elk Valley is filled with festivals and music all summer and, during autumn, you can relax amid the vibrant turning of the leaves—with a warm sensation that the Canadian Rockies are there for your private enjoyment.
Book your stay at The Qanuk today. Our ski resort and mountain lodge is closer to Seattle for skiing than Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Mountain. Leave right after sunup and you’ll be here long before sundown, with enough time to unpack your bags and to head into historic Fernie for a savory dinner and refreshing beverages. Then for the rest of the week (or longer!) step outside the door of your room and rejuvenate your soul with adventure and beauty that will forever remain in your memory. Once you’ve been here, we know you’ll come back!
