Fernie Adaptive Snowsports at a Glance

Fernie Adaptive Snowsports-F.I.R.E is a not for profit society which allows individuals of all abilities the opportunity to enjoy snow sports at Fernie Alpine Resort. With the support of our certified volunteer instructors, our goal is to give our students the freedom to ski and snowboard. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors we are able to provide our amazing services at a very affordable cost, making our program easily accessible to all. Whether our students are stand-up skiers/snowboarders or sit skiers, we are prepared to “see the ability” and adapt to their needs.
