My husband, his sister and I spent six nights at Snow Creek Lodge - our yearly ski trip and our second visit to Fernie.
The main attraction of this hotel is its location - right on the hill. It's a classic ski in- ski out with all the advantages that this implies.
We were three people, so we booked one of the two-bedroom/ two bath condos. I chose a "valley view" unit, which was not only cheaper than the units that face the ski run, it's also quieter, because you are not overlooking the pool/hot tub area and the deck. We were on the third floor, and had a great view of Mount Fernie, and of the chairlift, which went right by our window!
The condo was clean and comfortable, with a well-equipped full kitchen, which we put to good use. We arrived rather late in the evening because of the nearly four hour drive from Calgary, but there was a pleasant woman at the front desk who checked us in and explained where everything was.
We were assigned a ski locker, and every morning we would simply take the elevator down one level, grab our skis, and walk down the outside stairs and onto the ski slope.
After a hard day of skiing, the spacious, sunny deck was a pleasure to hang out on.
Snow Creek has recently added "Big Bang Bagels" which is located on the main floor just inside from the deck. It's open for breakfast, lunch, or an apres ski beer, and the bagels, which are freshly baked, are to die for.
We would definitely return to Snow Creek Lodge. I can't think of a single negative thing to write about it. Well, come to think of it, they did say they had wifi throughout the hotel, which isn't really true. In order to connect, we had to go down to the main lounge area. But this was a vacation after all, and we are not addicted to our computer, so we didn't mind a bit.
