Do you like like winter camping in a tent when it’s snowing outside? How about tenting after you’ve been skiing all day and you’re tired and cold. Almost everyone will say no to winter camping and we understand because we don’t like winter camping either. Perhaps winter camping has changed?
May we introduce our new winter camping option!
You drive into a beautiful mountain town with a resort perched on a bench beside a majestic river surrounded by inspiring mountains. You park your vehicle beside your cozy home for the night — a small yurt tucked away in a remote corner of the Fernie RV Resort. The yurt is warm upon entry with the electric heater and beautiful decor, and you look forward to crawling into your eight inch memory foam queen bed later that night. First though, you have an afternoon hike on one of the many trails connecting to the resort and a wonderful sushi dinner in one of Fernie fabulous restaurants.
That’s our new winter camping or aka glamping or luxury camping.
So pack your bag, call some friends, and hit the road for a sleepover in a Fernie yurt. Far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Fernie RV Resort has five cozy yurts to call home while exploring Fernie.
Winter yurt pricing is only $99 plus tax for a one night visit.
There are 50 kilometers of Nordic trails in Fernie ready for cross-country skiers and winter adventurers. But these yurts aren’t just for skiers. Snowshoers, hikers and fat bikers can also connect with the groomed trails leading from the door of our yurts. So many experiences are possible in Fernie.
“Our yurts offer a special coziness and warm atmosphere, a space for sharing simple joys with good people,” said Shelley Barrington, FRVR manager. “A few nights in a yurt with your family or friends, leaving the days wide open for skiing and snowshoeing on our riverside trails, and you’ve got coziness — Fernie style”.
