What Is FAR?

Fernie Alpine Resort is a ski area in the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. It has a reputation for excellent powder skiing and friendly people (but hey, I'm biased).

Total vertical drop is a little over 1080 m (3550 ft), with a top elevation of around 2135 m (7000 ft). Average annual snowfall is about 875 cm (almost 29 ft). There are seven chairlifts, a T bar, a poma and a carpet lift on the bunny run. Only two of the chairs are high speed detachable, but lift lines, especially mid week, are usually short to nonexistent.
