Fernie enjoys four distinct seasons, each with its own character and array of activities. Lush and green throughout the spring, summer and fall months and full of legendary snow over the winter months, Fernie is a Rocky Mountain town with spectacular scenery that changes with the seasons.

Fall is known for its colourful forests and quieter times to enjoy all the activities. Winter boasts big snowfalls for skiing and exploring winter wonderland in the Rockies. Spring brings flowers and warmth as patios open and trails dry up for walking, biking and hiking. Summer in Fernie is lush yet hot and is prime time to access all the activities, adventures, events and festivals of the warmer months.
