Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Located on the mountain at Fernie Alpine Resort. This ski in, ski out home is nestled to the side of an old ski run. This remarkable timber frame structure is for the vacationer who appreciates quality and location. Kimbers Timbers commands breath taking views of the Elk Valley, the ski hill and the Lizard range (Canadian Rockies). Construction is primarily of recycled Douglas fir timbers, taken from the decking of a bridge that once crossed the Columbia River at Trail B.C

This lodge is ideal for corporate retreats, weddings and gatherings. It is a superb spot for 2 to 3 families wishing to share accommodation while enjoying all that Fernie has to offer.

A unique soapstone fireplace or “Tulikivi” is located in the living room and features a “Forno”, or oven. The dining area has a large custom dining table made of larch and seats up to twelve guests. The wrought iron work and the recycled materials add a sense of history and warmth. Original artwork throughout the home along with historical photos of Fernie and the ski hill emphasize the beauty of this home.

The kitchen is a gourmet’s delight; featuring granite counters, gas range with convection oven, fridge, dishwasher, blender, microwave, coffee maker, with an abundant supply of pots, pans and dishes. Cook for yourself or arrange for a chef to come in and create a dining experience for you and your guests.

If you are looking for the most spectacular home at Fernie Alpine Resort, look no further.

About Kim Fuhrman

We are CaliFernians, ie. Calgarians that commute to Fernie for recreation in the mountains. In the 80's we lived in Canmore (near Banff), but usually travelled to Fernie on winter weekends to enjoy the powder skiing. From 2000 to 2004 (yes it took a long time to build!) we built Kimbers Timbers. Fernie is a great get away from the city. For more information please look for and click on the link to our personal website.

Kim Fuhrman purchased this Chalet in 2000

Why Kim Fuhrman chose East Kootenay A

We built Kimbers Timbers. Fernie and Fernie Alpine Resort are special mountain places.

What makes this Chalet unique

The best access to the ski hill is right out the front or back door of our chalet. When the ski season ends we have the mountain to ourselves and the wildlife! Summertime is so green and pretty.

                                                                Nowell C.

                                                                Great house and reasonable owners, and you can actually ski to the doorstep and down to the lifts! We had a group of 8-12 depending on the night and were comfortable in all cases. The hot tub, large dining table, and gear/boot drying room were also highlights.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks for the review. It was challenging shovelling all the snow that fell the week you were here. Regards. Kim

                                                                Great house makes for a fabulous vacation.

                                                                Simply doesn't get any better than luxury accommodations right on the hill. Our group of 5 couples thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kimbers Timbers. House definitely made up for the lack of fresh snow by being a place we were very happy to be in when not out on the slopes. Being on the hill is a must for a large group of people with different interest levels in skiing. First runs for those that want, sleeping in for others, rendezvous at lunch time for everyone and relaxing evenings by the fire or rousing games of foosball to settle scores. Easy to spend a full week in the house if fully provisioned yet quick and easy enough to get into town for supplies or some boutique shopping. Kimbers Timbers is always at the top of our list when looking for a place to stay in Fernie, any season!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Great house right on the ski hill

                                                                Wonderful Vacation Home

                                                                Beautiful home! We loved the piano and the views and the garage with all the space for 9 plus sets of ski equipment! Truly was ski in-ski out, this is a great location! Owners are so nice and friendly! Snow conditions were wonderful, so fluffy!

                                                                Wonderful Winter getaway

                                                                Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kimbers Timbers. Beautiful house, great space for family to gather and eat. Location is great for getting on and off the ski hill, a real bonus is the area (converted garage) for dressing and undressing and storing skis and skiwear. Would stay there again.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks again for leaving our place clean and tidy.
