The city of Fernie is at an elevation of 3,365 feet and has a population of just over 3500 full-time residents. Of course, having world class powder snow, the population explodes during the winter and becomes a busy Snowboarding and Skier destination.
Summer is great time to visit here as the winter crowds are gone and there is so much to do, including - of course - paddling the local rivers. If you have any questions about the rivers around Fernie or the surrounding area, post a question in 'River Talk', the Fernie paddling resource.
