Why Lana Radchenko chose Fernie
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, hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, and of course, golf!

Excellent family rental property!

Amazing Family Christmas!!
The Black Bear Chalet was absolutely perfect for our family ski Christmas vacation. The home is very clean, spacious and welcoming. The kitchen is well set up for a larger gatherings and easy to prepare food and cook in. Everyone loved the proximity of the Chalet to the ski hill and how easy it was to pop back to the Chalet for lunch. The hot tub was definitely another highlight - again very clean and the water was hot :). Everyone loved having their own bathroom and the beds were very comfortable.
Adam - the property Caretaker was very friendly and helpful. Definitely the BEST family ski vacation!
Lana...Thank you so much for everything!!! We had a wonderful Christmas.
Best cabin in the area!
Beautiful property. Best place for a family to go to experience Fernie. We'll be back!
Amazing home and location!
This home in the mountains is amazing! We stayed with three families of four! Fit us all perfectly. Everyone family had their own space and bathroom! The kitchen island is perfect for a buffet style service and the dinning table big enough for us all to eat together! Super close to the ski trails! The views are gorgeous! Lana, the owner was super helpful and got back to us immediately if we had questions. Would definitely without hesitation recommend this home and come back !!
Beautiful spacious home with great layout for a big group.
This home was perfect for my group of eight guys. There was more than enough space to eat and hangout and nobody had to share a bed. We loved the rustic log cabin feel, and the location was also great. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. I’d highly recommend this property!
Fernie, British Columbia has developed into a year round recreation site. Nestled in a valley and surrounded by rugged peaks, the picturesque City of Fernie lies 5 km (3 miles) east of the Fernie Alpine Resort where our chalet is located.
Known for its phenomenal skiing, Fernie has also grown to be a year round recreation site. Whether it is skiing on the 875 cm (that's almost 27 feet) of snow that Fernie gets yearly or enjoying a river raft or golf game at one of the 5 nearby courses. Fernie has it all!
