The Fernie Alpine Resort’s village has some great ride in/ride out accommodation right at the base of the snowboarding area.
The resort is located in Fernie, BC nestled in the Canadian Rockies and enjoys a high annual snowfall – so if you love powder, you’ll most likely love Fernie.
See link below for more information on the riding on offer at Fernie.
Staying on the Mountain
Nothing beats the convenience and atmosphere of staying right on the mountain, within walking distance to the lifts. If you are looking for cheaper options or prefer to be off site read on for more options.
Some of the ride in/ride out (or at least walking distance to lifts) options for Fernie are:
- Fernie Slopeside Lodge
- Cornerstone Lodge
- Lizard Creek Lodge
- Timberline Lodge
- The Griz Inn
- Snow Creek Lodge & Cabins
- Alpine Lodge Fernie
- Stone Creek Chalets
- Polar Peak Lodges
Staying further out
The small town of Fernie is your next best option to staying at the base – and at just a 10 minute drive up the road, it’s a great alternative. Really close and gives you a few more options and likely to be cheaper on average.
Fernie’s population is around 5,000 but is well set up for tourism having the ski resort just up the road.
Cranbrook, BC is the closest reasonable size town but at 1hr 15mins away is a bit of a daily commute. Still doable and if you are on a tight budget and don’t mind the driving then Cranbrook is an option.
Sparwood, BC is only 30 minutes drive from Fernie – however there is very limited accommodation to speak of.

The best way to Book?
I personally like using booking.com because it has the largest range of accommodations of all the booking sites I’ve seen and has a large number of users – meaning a large number of reviews so you can get unbiased opinions of what others thought of their stays at particular places.
I also find it really user friendly and easy to book.
Click on the link below to find the right accommodation for your visit to the Fenie Alpine Resort.
Hint: Search for Fernie, BC, Canada (and put in your dates and number of guests) then hit “distance from city centre“. This will give you the accommodation in order from Fernie’s town centre. To find the on-mountain accommodation go to page two and from “3.9kms from city centre”, starting with Stone Creek Chaletes, will be the on-mountain places.
You can further narrow those options by price, ratings and distance from city centre.
If you can’t find what you are looking for on booking.com you could try hotels.com or you might have your own preferred booking site. You could also check out the accommodation page on the Resort’s website.
