December and January are hands down the best time to ski in Fernie for fresh powder. But with reliable snow from December to April, you're spoilt for choice throughout the season. Cue big powder runs! Sunny bluebird days are likely in February and March, and April is blessed with warmer temperatures and extra daylight hours for more time on the slopes. Feel the burn! The weekends can get busy with local skiers from Calgary, so aim for a mid-week break to avoid the crowds. And if you're travelling during the holidays, there's usually a decent schedule of events and activities in town.
