Fernie is a city of 4000 permanent residents in the Elk Valley area of the East Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia. Snowed Inn is 5km from the City of Fernie. A substantial seasonal population swells the city during the winter and summer months.
Fernie lies on the Elk River, along Canada’s southernmost east-west transportation corridor through the Rockies that crosses the range via the Crowsnest Pass, 40 kilometres (25 mi) to the east. As the largest and longest-established community between Cranbrook and Lethbridge, Fernie serves as a minor regional centre, particularly for its fellow Elk Valley communities.
