About Dean or Catherine Novak

We are a family from Calgary but have been skiing in Fernie for over 30 years. We know the resort and the town inside out and love to share the many experiences it offers with people from around the world.

Dean or Catherine Novak purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dean or Catherine Novak chose British Columbia Mountains

Fernie, and specifically this wonderful condo, really let's you unwind. Often we arrive, and don't get back in the car to go any where for days as everything you need is right there. So great not to have to drive!

What makes this condo unique

Location. Location. Location. Many people market their properties with great location or best location. Thunder Ridge, and specifically this unit in Thunder Ridge, truly is the best. Literally step off the back deck, and start skiing down to the lift, and you can ski back right to the same spot for lunch or the end of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your wonderful condo! Everything worked out perfectly. A total winter wonderland compared to the hassle of the mega resorts we're used to in Europe.

Location truly is best on the mountain, and everything in the condo was just great. Super well layed out and exactly what we were looking for. Skiing right to the door for lunch and at the end of the day was awesome!

Fantastic Family Home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the ski-in-ski-out aspect of this condo. We hired for a week in February and got close to a foot of fresh snow the night we arrived (28cm)! so conditions were great and we even got some sledding in on the slope right next to the condo which the kids loved! The Griz restaurant is only a few steps from the condo and was a great spot too, as was the fernie village which wasnt much further walk. The hot tub was ideal for soaking our bones in after a full day skiing, the layout of the condo was great too, open plan with a cozy den and gas fireplace with Netflix to chill out on the sofa on. The upstairs bedrooms were ideal for our family, a queen bunk room for our 3 boys, a smaller bedroom for our Mom and finally the master suite with great views of Fernie Alpine (the boys loved watching the snowcats go by our window grooming the runs at night! So overall we would highly recommend this condo and this mountain for great terrain and friendly locals to make you feel right at home.

I would like to thank you and your family for renting your beautiful condo to us from March 5 – 9. We had a fabulous time and truly loved the location. I know our time spent as a family was very memorable and when we have the opportunity to do another Fernie trip with the kids, we will definitely check to see if your condo will be available.

Thanks again!!!

Best Location in Fernie!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly ski-in/ski-out right to and from your door. The unit was very clean, updated and well equipped with great space for our family of 5, but could have easily handled a couple more people. We especially appreciated having the equipment room for all our our gear. The owners were great to work with and if we return to Fernie we would hope to stay in this unit again.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so fortunate to have found this place for our weekend escape as it was PERFECT! Our friends loved the easy access to the slopes and our toddler soaked in the fun on the bunny hill just steps away. The owners were unbelievably accommodating and extremely friendly. The unit was well-equiped with everything a family needs! Thanks so much.
