Park Place Lodge

Fernie Alpine Resort is proud of their community commitment and their effort to ensure that all children have the opportunity to ski. Every year there are several Elk Valley programs that are either age or grade specific, and the Emily Brydon Foundation supports all ages.


Season Passes to all Grade 2

Fernie Alpine Resort offers Full Season Passes to all Grade 2 (or 7-Year Old). Known as the Husky Snowstars Grade 2 Funpass, it provides Children a RCR season pass for only $20 (pass also includes Kimberley Alpine Resort & Nakiska Ski Area). The regular purchase price of that pass is almost $300. This industry leading initiative is part of Fernie Alpine Resorts commitment to fighting childhood obesity and getting kids active and healthy in winter.

Emily Brydon Youth Foundation
The Emily Brydon Youth Foundation was created in 2006 with the goal of providing the youth of the Elk Valley opportunity and support through education, sport and the arts. Ski passes, equipment and lessons have been provided to many children in the valley and Fernie Alpine Resort is a big supporter of the Foundation. Emily vision has been, “Every child deserves a chance to believe; to have the dreams and goals that it takes to succeed in the world today. It is our responsibility, as a people, to help those in need, open doors for those who need a little guidance and provide a shoulder to lean on when times are tough. Our lives need to be dictated by not only taking but by giving; in the end both have equal value.”

Local School Group Programs

Fernie Alpine Resort believes all children should be able to experience skiing/riding and a healthy lifestyle! They also work together with schools in the area to offer Local School Group Programs, offering children $25 Lesson/Lift Access and Rental packages as part of their school activity trips.


With all these programs available be sure your children get on the slopes this winter!
