Facilities & Services

The central hub of the village at Fernie Alpine Resort is only small, and most of the ski resort services and facilities are centred around this area. A few of the accommodation lodges also contain some facilities for skiers and snowboarders.

Eating On Mountain

The Lost Boys Café is a relatively new café at the top of Timber Bowl chair. The views from the big deck are spectacular, but it’s mainly just good for hot beverages as the food options are very limited. Another on-mountain pit-stop is the Bear’s Den at the top of Elk chair.

Alternatively return to the ski area base where there are a variety of options for food and drinks. The large day lodge has a cafeteria selling classic cafeteria food such as burgers and sandwiches. Other options include Kelsey’s, Slopside Coffee and Deli, and the Powderhorn Restaurant at the Griz Inn. For a more glamorous lunch go to the Lizard Creek Lodge.

Facilities for Children

The resort offers childcare in the Cornerstone Lodge with half day or full day programs for children aged 18 months to 6 years. The resort may be able to help with a nanny service for babies not eligible to attend child care. Rates for child care are very reasonable.

Ski and play programs are available for 3-5 year olds, and the resort also has a kids après program. In addition to this, the resort runs kids activities from 6-9pm a couple of nights per week – a great opportunity for Mum and Dad to have some alone time.

Fernie Ski Rentals

The resort rental shop is located in the base area of Fernie Alpine Resort, renting out predominantly only Head gear.

Located at the Lizard Creek Lodge is the Quest Ski and Snowboard Rental shop. The shop is tiny but they pack in plenty of mid range and performance gear, including a range of fat skis and cross-country equipment.
