Lizard Creek Lodge is undergoing a bold renovation to it’s great room with the installation of an Ice Bar, named Cirque.
Granite counters, new paint, lighting and wood work is coming together to recreate the finest ski-in/ski-out location in Canada! The massive new bar has arrived accompanied with refrigerators, sinks, glass washers and server POS systems. The new Ice Bar, Cirque, is nearing completion of the design and engineering stage and when the new furnishings arrive, will be open for the season!
Fernie is a place of firsts. Years ago pioneering mountain guides like Bruno Engler discovered a powder paradise in the Lizard Range. Then in 1962, on land donated by Galloway Lumber, Fernie Snow Valley Ski Resort was born, a mom and pop ski hill guided by the vision of the legendary skiing couple. Heiko and Linda Socher. In the years that followed the resort underwent an epic transformation from local powder hound’s secret to world class Fernie Alpine Resort, with the addition of new lifts and accessing of five alpine bowls that built on the resort’s already existing appeal for skiers and boarders wanting deep snow and steeps. But as the resort evolved, the developers paid close attention to the visitor experience beyond ski lifts and vertical -they wanted to ensure that a stay on the mountain was memorable, like an immersion in mountain culture. That was the simple but beautiful logic behind the creation of Lizard Creek Lodge, one of the first boutique ski in-ski out lodges in the Canadian Rockies.
“Now they are at it again–setting the stage, a Mountain Lifestyle destination deserves a great place to gather! So here is to ‘Gathering More’ – to celebrate ‘Together Time’ in the mountains at the new Lizard Creek Lodge as with this renovation on the great room!
