skiing Near Fernie

With world-class powder and 30 feet of snow every year, it’s no secret that Fernie, British Columbia, is an international destination for skiing. And The Qanuk ski resort in Fernie provides the most comfortable and convenient accommodations for your winter getaway. Enjoy an epic combination of downhill, nordic, and snowboarding excitement—and all of it accessible right outside your front door. You can ski just 100m from your room to the Deer Lift for a scenic ride up to the more than 142 trails lined through the snow capped peaks of Lizard Range. 

The runs criss-cross 5 epic alpine bowls, all of which are connected for easy access. Each bowl has its own particular terrain, challenges, and vivid, snow-laden vistas to ski and snowboard in Fernie:

The Siberia offers you long, slicing runs that will make you feel like you’re the only person who’s ever skied across the untouched powder of this hidden gem.

The Timber challenges you with trees and then expansive open spaces. The White Pass, Surprise, and Shaky Acres runs accommodate the skills of almost every skier.

The Currie offers an adventure for those who prefer more extreme skiing than just your “average” run. The Concussion, Alpha Centauri, and the popular Sky Dive runs will thrill you!

The Lizard is a favorite for thrill seekers. With its Easter Bowl, High Saddle, the Headwall, and numerous drops, pro skiers arrive every winter to vie for great prizes in an epic race!

The Cedar is also another skier favorite for its incredible panorama and runs through breathtaking scenery—and for its natural rollers and dramatic fall lines.

One of British Columbia’s most precious jewels in the Canadian Rockies, The Qanuk is everything you want in a pristine mountain retreat at our Fernie ski resort. Our lodge has more than 334 square meters (3600 sq ft) of spacious accommodation and room enough for several families—10 adults and 6 kids.
