Winter is a skiers/snowboarders heaven with 35 feet of powder annually, 5 large bowls at Fernie Alpine Resort & 3 cat ski operations. Fernie Alpine Resort offers a variety of terrain and steeps and easy access to back country.

Summer also rocks, with some of the best mountain biking in canada, hiking (without mass crowds & epic scenery), fly fishing (one of the top ten rivers in North America), golf and white water rafting. So as you can imagine, it's second heaven!

    This hostel suffers from the same problem as so many others in ski towns: The crowd at the hostel is made up mostly of psuedo-locals (ie. ski hill lifties and the like) who are living/working in town on visas for the year. Not a problem in itself, but it created a very "closed" atmosphere where people aren't really looking to meet anyone new or be overly social beyond their already established friends. In short, it lacks that open social, backpacker vibe but is still a nice facility.
