This beautiful log chalet is located just a few minutes walk to the ski lifts of Fernie Alpine Resort with ski to the door convenience. Log beds, pine floor, and woodburning fireplace add to the charm of our Black Bear Chalet. In fact, we adopted a stuffed black bear from Fernie Mountain while we were building our home and he is still present as the keeper of our chalet.
Our chalet is ideal for large families or groups who love to cook and socialize around our large kitchen table, built by one of the owners. In the summer large decks, barbecue, and a commercial hot tub aid to the enjoyment of the secluded property with flora and fauna in abundance. Firepit overlooking the lake at the back of the property makes you feel like you are back to nature. A little piece of Canadian paradise!

As avid skiiers, we first fell in love with Fernie because of the DEEP powder snow in the winter season. Later, we learned Fernie is a great place to be all year around - skiing, snowboarding, ski-doing, fishing, rafting, and of course, golf!
