Powder. If there is one word that describes the reasons why people come to Fernie I think the word powder is it. Deep, fluffy powder. Powder so deep you have to spit out snowballs of it as you cascade down the mountainside. Powder so light you have to memorize the landscape in order to make your way through the trees between face shots. So much powder in fact that the locals get tired of waking up in the morning and having to shovel their way out of the driveway before heading to work.
Fernie has become a winter destination with many recreation options ranging from backcountry huts, snow-cat skiing and nearby resorts within two hours drive including Castle Mountain and Whitefish.
