Fernie Slopeside Lodge

Located at the base of Fernie Alpine Resort, Fernie Slopeside Lodge is a comfortable ski-in/ski-out hotel-style accommodation.  It’s just steps from the village plaza, including Legends Restaurant and the Slopeside Deli, and 5km from the City of Fernie.

Our rooms are furnished with two double beds, flat screen TV's, mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave and WiFi.  Listed price is for double occupancy; add $655 for the single supplement if you want a room to yourself.

Lift Tickets – Epic Passes:  Epic Passes, which must be individually purchased (not through the club), may provide the best value for your lift tickets – especially if you're planning to ski at more than one "Epic" resort this winter.  It may depend when you buy your pass as prices will increase as winter gets closer The following options would cover your skiing for the trip.  Prices shown are as of late November 2023, but December 3, 2023 was the last day to buy passes for the 2023-24 season, including the Day Passes:

  • A "full" Epic Pass ($1,025) allows you to ski a total of 7 days at the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies which includes Fernie.
  • Regrettably, the Epic Military Passes have no benefits at Fernie.
  • Epic Day Pass (the non-holiday rate for an "all resort" pass) – ($502 for 5 days; $585 for 6 days)

You may purchase Epic Passes directly from Vail Resorts, but we suggest that you visit our Epic & Ikon Pass page to explore the promotional offers that may be available from our tour operators.

If you'll be using an Epic Pass, we must provide your pass number to the resort so that it counts towards our group lift ticket minimum purchase requirements.  Please enter your Epic Pass number into your membership profile before registering for the trip, or provide it to the trip leader if you purchase (or renew) your pass subsequent to signing up.

Group Lift Tickets:  Although an Epic Pass may provide the best value, group lift tickets are available as an option for those without an Epic Pass:

Membership Requirement:  Your club membership must be current when signing up for the trip and throughout the duration of the trip.  The trip will be "sanctioned" through the Blue Ridge Ski Council.  Current members of other BRSC member ski clubs may register for the trip beginning August 1.

Trip Insurance:   Emergency medical, evacuation & repatriation insurance (not cancellation insurance) is included with your trip.  This is not cancellation coverage and will not provide any relief if you have to cancel from the trip before it begins, whether for medical or other reasons.  You may upgrade the coverage of this Basic Plan to include cancellation insurance by clicking on this link.  It will take you to a flyer describing the Basic Plan and the upgrade options available through Myra Altschuler of Travel Protectors LLC:

  • The Option 1 cancellation plan provides all the benefits of the Basic Plan, but also covers you for cancelling for a number of basic reasons such as illness, injury or death to you or to your traveling companion/ roommate.  You must purchase it within 14 days of putting down your very first dollar towards the trip in order to waive the pre-existing medical condition exclusion.
  • The Option 2 "Cancel For Any Reason" (CFAR) plan provides all the benefits of the Option 1 plan, but also covers you for cancelling for any non-standard reason, or if you just don’t want to go, but you must purchase it within 14 days of putting down your very first dollar towards the trip.  If you cancel your trip for a non-standard reason, your refund will be limited to 75% of your insured trip cost.
  • If you upgrade your coverage with either option through Myra, prior to making your final payment on the trip, we will credit your trip invoice with the $50 cost of the club-provided Basic Plan.
  • If you purchase your own travel insurance, which includes emergency medical, evacuation & repatriation coverage, and inform your trip leader prior to making your final payment on the trip, we will credit your trip invoice with the $50 cost of the club-provided Basic Plan.  You must present your policy to the trip leader to receive the credit.
