The views will take your breath away at the new Lost Boys Café, Fernie Alpine Resort’s newest on-mountain addition for the 2006-2007 ski season.
Located at the top of the Timber Express Quad Chair, the Lost Boys Café will provide skiers and riders a beautiful setting to satisfy their appetites. Enjoy a piping hot baked potato with traditional and exotic toppings, fresh baked goods, Starbucks espresso coffees, and specialty items only available at The Lost Boys Café. This licensed facility will feature Kokanee draft beer and a fine selection of E&J Gallo wines. Outside, the wraparound deck will showcase spectacular views of the White Pass, Elk Valley and the town of Fernie.
The 1080 square foot building is an alpine-themed timber and stone structure. Many of the timber logs used in construction have come from the run grooming and glading projects that occurred this summer to further enhance the resort’s 107 runs and glades.
The café’s interior plans include seating for 60 people inside, with additional seating on the picturesque deck outside. In addition to the café, skiers and riders can look forward to the addition of warm bathroom facilities at the top of the Timber Chair.
September 14 – The Lost Boys Café and Fernie Alpine Resort Is Already Looking “Snow’ Spectacular
While providing a great food and beverage setting for our ski guests, the café will undoubtedly become an exciting and unique venue for special private events and activities in the summer and winter months.
The Lost Boys Café is named after the pass of the same name that sits outside of the current ski area boundary above Siberia Bowl. It was originally named after a couple of young local boys who went backcountry touring through the Pass and were lost and subsequently rescued miles away on the other side of the range. Many hikers and backcountry skiers have followed in their footsteps, sure they could find their way back to the boundaries of the Resort before nightfall, but each year the ski patrol responds to missing backcountry skiers and riders that have been drawn into the trap of Lost Boys Pass and spent a night in the cold.
The café is expected to open in time for the season opening on December 9th.
