Learn about a variety of native flora, wildlife and fossils and explore the Alpine with certified interpreters.

Throughout the local mountain range, there is an abundance of native flora, wildlife and fossils. Without a doubt, the way to learn about these subjects and walk these mountains is with a certified interpreter. Visit the Interpretive Yurt at the top of the Elk Chair, and then take an interpretive guided hike on one of the resort's many trails and gain a deeper understanding of how our valley was formed and how special our ecosystem is. A team of guides will help you discover the secrets of the natural world while exploring the rugged terrain around Fernie Alpine Resort.

Reopening June 22, 2024 for summer operations. 

The Interpretive Centre at Fernie Alpine Resort is named for 'Nature Bob' - Bob Livsey (September 10, 1939 - December 13, 2021) who was a nature guide at Fernie Alpine Resort for over a dozen years. Bob was a certified naturalist interpreter with a background in forestry and a great passion for the mountains. Bob was legendary within the local community as a font of knowledge, and will be remembered fondly by all who encountered him.
