Community Involvement at Fernie Stanford Resort

At the Fernie Stanford Resort we believe in the importance of contributing to the wonderful Fernie community that supports us. Our hotel has undertaken numerous initiatives to support Fernie community events, activities, and organizations. We are the host hotel for several special events, and we are always happy to work with local groups as a sponsor or another form of partnership.

Below is a list of our current partners and community involvement initiatives. If you are a Fernie community group, business, or event, and would like to work with us, please feel free to contact us.

Fernie Alpine Resort

The Stanford Fernie Resort is a host hotel and proud partner of the Fernie Alpine Resort. We are currently the official lodging for the Fernie Alpine Resort’s Junior and Senior Freeski events which take place in February. Our proximity to the Resort and our luxuriously furnished, reasonably priced rooms make us the ideal place to stay whenever you are visiting the Fernie Alpine Resort for an event, competition, or simply a world-class ski vacation.

“Thank you for your support this season being the accommodation partner for our Freeski Competitions and prize sponsor of a Jacuzzi suite for our
Powder, Pedal, Paddle Relay. The judges loved the accommodation they were put up in, and with the cost saving on accommodation we were able to focus on the event specifically, which helped to enhance the competition for the participants. It is only with the support of community businesses such as the Fernie Stanford Resort that we are able to put together such successful events each season”

-Jeni Sugiyama, Fernie Alpine Resort Events Coordinator
