Surrounded by Canada’s Rocky Mountains, these hotels in Fernie are perfect for skiing the resort’s renowned champagne powder.

A string of ski towns lie along the Powder Highway, which loops through a stretch of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, blessed with remarkably routine snowfall. Fernie is an official stop on the tour, but lesser loved compared to some of the nearby giants. This often leaves the resort’s five high alpine bowls untracked, ready for you to ski. The former coal mining town now houses an abundance of hotel options – these are among the best.

Brooks Creek Ranch

Brooks Creek Ranch tucks into a bow of the Elk River, backed by thousands of acres of snow-draped pines, just 20 minutes from town. With only four guest suites and attentive concierge staff, it’s a base camp for a custom-built winter adventure, starting with breakfasts plated by a Chopped Canada champion chef. The off-grid ranch, powered by renewable energy and hydrated with local springwater, proves sustainability doesn’t mean forgoing luxury.

Oversized windows in each guestroom at the St Eugene catch views of the hoodoos’ spires, frosted tree limbs and the St Mary River. One- or two-bedroom suites can be booked with interconnecting rooms for families or larger groups. Some even welcome bringing the dog along. The Ktunaxa Nation (pronounced ‘k-too-nah-ha’), who have lived on these lands for more than 10,000 years, own the resort and casino. An interpretive center shares some of their history and culture.
