"Ski the Peak" this winter at Fernie Alpine Resort on the new Polar Peak Lift!

Construction has begun on the spectacular new Polar Peak Lift. This lift will give Fernie Alpine Resort a whopping 3,550 vertical feet of Legendary Snow Fun.

Answer your questions: view the transcript of the "Live Chat" with Powder Matt that took place on Wednesday September 7, 2011.

The Polar Peak Lift adds an above tree-line Bowl skiing experience with over 22 new runs and the incredible experience of skiing off the summit of one of the highest peaks in the Lizard Range. Many will enjoy making laps of the new Polar Peak Lift, others the thigh burning fun skiing some of the longest runs in the Canadian Rockies. The addition of the new runs off Polar Peak will bring the total number of marked runs at Fernie Alpine Resort to 140 – the most Ski Runs in the Canadian Rockies!
