The magnificent peaks of the Lizard Range in the BC Rocky Mountains tower over 7,000 acres of private bowls, valleys and gladed forest. For over 30 years, Island Lake Catskiing in Fernie has been at the top of the list of must-ski destinations for every serious skier or boarder. Island Lake is the ultimate destination for luxury cat skiing, fine dining, full-service spa and guest service second to none. The price of your tour includes all lodging, meals, skiing, safety equipment and skis or snowboards.
Calling all powder hounds! It's true - we will indeed be offering catskiing by the day this winter!! When will depend on early season snowfall and road building etc. Please stay tuned for updates and for the love of Ullar - get on our day skiing and last minute deal list!
Our large and diverse terrain encompasses much of the Cedar Valley, the north end of the Lizard Range, all of Mount Baldy and the front and back slopes of Mount Fernie. At the heart of it sits Island Lake Lodge and beautiful Island Lake. Several of the runs can be skied right to the door of the lodge!
In the early 1990’s some of the biggest names in the ski and snowboard industry followed the powder up to Fernie and became regulars at the lodge. Greg Stump filmed with Scot Schmidt and Mark Gallup started shooting photos with various ski and snowboard pros including Craig Kelly, Jason Ford, Jake Blattner and Terje Haakonsen. Island Lake became one of the most famous ski & snowboard media destinations in the world during this era.
