Inspired to get outdoors – Fernie offers endless activities

Nestled in southeastern region of BC and surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, Fernie’s townsite is laid out in the crook of a doglegged glacial valley that today is drained by the Elk River.

The melting of the glaciers has transformed the Elk Valley into a majestic place that offers breathtaking views, endless trails, wildlife viewing, a world class ski resort, legendary powder, unique restaurants and amazing nightlife. At the Red Tree Lodge we know how amazing Fernie is and it inspires us to get out and enjoy what our beautiful valley has to offer.

In the summer, mountain biking, floating the Elk River, jumping the cliffs at silver springs, fly fishing and golfing become normal days of enjoying the outdoors and Fernie. In July and August downtown Fernie becomes a Summer Social where kids, families, adults can enjoy great food, live music and visit the unique shops. No matter what day of the week and as long as the sun is shining, Fernie becomes lively with residents and guests.

The winter months are what Fernie is known for. The legendary powder and blue bird days make riding at Fernie Alpine Resort a dream. Providing the most vertical in the Rockies and with the new addition of the Polar Peak chair last season, the debate about the old side and new side keeps on going. Although riding is how most Fernie residents enjoy the outdoors in the winter, there are still many other great ways to get out and enjoy that fluffy white stuff!

Snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, cat skiing and tobogganing are lots of fun and provide great ways to enjoy Fernie and it’s beautiful surroundings. At the Red Tree Lodge we’ve teamed up with some amazing local outfitters to provide our guests the opportunity to experience winter in Fernie. Receive between 5-20% off with our winter Stay & Play packages and enjoy a day mushing with the dogs or snowmobiling to Island Lake Lodge or maybe even an unforgettable day cat skiing with Fernie Wilderness Adventures.
