Fernie welcomes visitors including out-of-province visitors, but safely, please read below.
BC, and Fernie, is allowing visitors to travel to BC from other Canadian provinces. But, we must all travel SMART and be respectful of local safety and business procedures. The Canada-USA border is still closed to all non-essential travel until at least November 21, and is expected to remain closed through the rest of fall and potentially winter season. Please expect and respect the new safe ways of experiencing Fernie. Businesses are open again, however with guidelines, new hours and procedures in place, please adhere to signs. Masks are not mandatory in Fernie but many businesses do require them.
Winter Ski Season - all resorts will be operating this winter season. Fernie Alpine Resort's opening date is December 5th. Local catskiing operations will open around mid-December. Fernie's offers a wealth of cross-country skiing, fat biking and snowshoeing opportunities as well which are great ways to safely enjoy the outdoors. Businesses offering indoor experiences such as wellness, spa, dining, shopping and attractions are all open with safety protocols in place.
