Skiing in Fernie is the main attraction in the winter and it’s not just done at Fernie Alpine Resort.
Cat skiing takes place at Fernie Wilderness Adventures and Island Lake Lodge.
The latter was made famous by legendary snowboarder Craig Kelly and ski movie star Scott Schmidt. Skiing at Island Lake is a fairly exclusive affair but those lucky enough to try it will remember it forever.
Fernie Wilderness Adventures offers Cat Skiing trips that are more accessible, starting with day trips into amazing terrain through graded trees and sub-alpine areas south of Fernie.
