About Us

We have skied all over North America and I grew up in the town of Banff.  However, no where we have skied matches Fernie for snow, terrain, people and laid back lifesyle.  We love this place, please treat it with kindness.  We reside in the separate lower unit when the lodge is rented.  If there are any problems, questions or you are looking for information on the secret stashes of powder, just knock on the lower level outside door and we will help you out.

We look forward to you enjoying your stay.

Have a great holiday.

Guys ski trip to Ferni

David from Milton, Canada
Date: Feb-11-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

Very nice and clean home. We were a group of 5 guys but this would also be perfect for two families with up to 2 children each. Great Room, kitchen dining room is a perfect size. Unfortunate for us the Pineapple Express came through and it rained throughout our stay. So it was great to have comfortable accommodations. Fairly close to the lifts so ski out was good. We would try to rent again if we come back.

Our first white christmas.

Leanne from Cashmere, Australia
Date: Feb-03-2015 for a stay in Dec 2014

We were looking for a wonderful Canadian White Christmas with our adult children and this house ticked every box. The house is amazing, with beautiful timber work, homely and comfortable furnishings, a fantastic hot tub and the most magical views from many of the rooms. Lots of little extras allowed us to live as if it was our own home for a week. Walking distance to ski resort and facilities. Great place for a large family or small groups sharing. Plenty of room to get away from each other. The owners were a pleasure to deal with from our first contact til after we arrived home in Australia. Would highly recommend this property. We didn't want to leave!!

Beautiful Home

tsherwin49 from Calgary, Canada
Date: Feb-19-2015

Condo was in a great location. Great views of the ski hill from all windows. We could have skied-out, If we had had snow! The hot tub was wonderful. Stayed hot even after being used for lengthy periods. Beds were exceptionally comfortable, NO hammock beds here! This unit was very comfortable for the eight of us, 4 adults and 4 children. We would definitely book again.

used the condo for a fishing vacation. Condo is superbly located to take in the Fernie area. Haven't booked it for skiing yet but plan to do so this winter. The unit is very clean and very well cared for. You really can't go wrong by by booking this condo, can easily accomidate a family of 8 but works for couples too.

An amazing place to stay on the hill in fernie. A very relaxing stay. The kitchen was superb and easy access to and from the hill made the stay enjoyable for both skiing and biking vacations. I have stayed here multiple times in both summer and winter seasons and will go again.

My wife and I have stayed at Bearpaw 201 to ski and fly fish over the past 3 years. Great place, comfortable rooms and furniture. Close to all the attractions and outdoor activities of Fernie and surrounding area. Overall a wonderful experience.

Fantastic location and accomodation for an outdoor holiday

Cam and Mary-June from AB

Spacious,quality furnishing.An outdoor hottub (conveniently on the balcony) to soothe aching muscles after an exhilerating day on the ski slopes, hiking or bike trails, fishing, or golf course. A short walk to chairlifts, (ski back) to a general store,liquor store,restaurants, pubs and entertainment.

Amazing timberframe chalet with perfect location

Katherine from BC
Date: Sep-09-2012

Perfect location 5 minutes to Elk chairlift. We loved downhill skiing in the morning,skiing back to the chalet for lunch, having a relaxing hot tub and then going back out for a xc ski. Dinner, a walk afterwards,followed by a restful sleep and then doing it all over again the next day. Most memorable was the early morning call of "Everybody out of bed! It's a Fernie powder day!" Fernie powder is legendary. This is a beautiful timberframe building with wonderful architectural details. The timbers in the vaulted ceiling are a work of art. The wide plank pine floors are beautiful. Very nice details throughout. There is good separation of the bedrooms/living areas since they are on different levels. Lots of room for ski gear storage. Kitchen seats 8 comfortably. Really like a home away from home, making for a very relaxing vacation. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice unit, beautiful wood work and cozy
