The Qanuk

A Little Piece of Paradise in BC

Toronto is a beautiful city with so much to see and do. But it’s also busy and it’s noisy, and there are times when you need to get away from the bustle to let your mind wander and your spirit recharge. The Qanuk in Fernie, BC, is the perfect place to rejuvenate yourself, no matter what season you want to visit. Discover our mountain lodge near Toronto today, and find your home away from home!


Winter Recreation

Cradled in the alpine majesty of the Lizard Range in the Canadian Rockies, The Qanuk is your ski-in-ski-out lodge near Toronto that has winter fun and adventures to offer. With 37 inches of pristine powder every winter, the slopes just outside your door offer world-class downhill skiing, and there are hundreds of nordic trails through the alpine landscape.


The Qanuk—Basecamp for Adventure

During the warmer months, you can use our nature resort near Toronto as your hub for world-renowned fat bike adventuring and competition, and as a resting place after a full day of hiking, kayaking, or whitewater rafting. All summer, the Elk Valley echoes with the music and laughter of numerous festivals and special activities.


Alpine Beauty

Autumn is a particularly quiet time, with all the colors of the changing season—a time for standing waist-deep in one of six easy-to-reach rivers, tossing out flies for rainbow, cutthroat, and bull trout. Or you can relax in a slow canoe and fish in any of the 50 lakes that gloss the alpine landscape looking down on Fernie and your room at our mountain lodge near Toronto.

Our gorgeous ski resort near Toronto provides more than 334 square meters of comfortable home-away-from-away living. You have access to a full kitchen, a 112-square-meter entertainment room, three bedrooms with enough space to accommodate 10 adults and 6 kids, a dining room, a living room, and an outdoor patio with a barbecue and a 6-person hot tub.

From Toronto, our mountain lodge is only a three-and-a-half-hour flight from Toronto to Calgary International Airport, and then just another beautiful 3-hour shuttle ride through the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains. Knowing you’ll cross two time zones and leaving an hour to get geared up once you’re here, you could leave home in Toronto at 8:00 a.m. and be on the ski slopes overlooking The Qanuk by 1:30 that afternoon. Or, if you come during spring or summer, you’d be right on time for lunch and a pint, before treating yourself to a thrilling fat biking run down the Lizard Range.

Call and book yourself some time to slow it all down and bask in the beauty of an alpine vacation. Your soul could use it.

in the heart of the majestic Canadian Rockies…

a comfortable, homey place to recharge…

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!
