Après-Ski in Fernie
Après in Fernie is a game of two halves. Kick off for the first half in the mountain village. Half-time shuttle to the town. Then a strong second half in downtown Fernie. Here’s a few first team picks:
Griz Bar (mountain village)
Fernie’s #1 après ski venue since 1962. This is a proper old school ski town banger of a pub with ice cold draft beers, daily drinks specials and the world famous ‘Mogul Smoker’, all washed down with a pyramid of nachos and a raft of wings.
Cirque Restaurant & Bar (mountain village)
Located within the Lizard Creek Lodge, slopeside in the mountain village. Pull up a seat at the Cirque bar for a great range of local BC wines, draft beers and hand-made cocktails. Follow this with a dinner which sets the standard for fine-dining in Fernie. And then…it’s a short stagger to the elite Vodka Ice Bar, where you’ll get togged up in Helly Hansen parkas and sample a variety of vodkas at ultra-low temperatures.
Fernie Taphouse (downtown)
Smack in the middle of Fernie downtown this is a lively pub with a rotating seasonal craft draft list and classic beer line up on tap. Expect weekly drinks specials, a wide menu of gastro-pub favourites and a cool sports bar vibe.
Brickhouse Bar & Grill (downtown)
This is a converted and renovated heritage brick building in downtown Fernie – the old Imperial Bank of Canada building. Street level for après, beer, eats. Downstairs for après, beer and DJ. The Brickhouse has a Mediterranean infused pub menu, great range of beers, nice selection of BC wines and really relaxed atmosphere.
The Pub Bar & Grill (downtown)
This is Fernie’s favourite spot for a wee social beer, a plate of wings and a game of pool and has the feel of a really nice neighbourhood pub. Watch all the best sport on their large screen HDTVs. Expect a great range of beers on tap and a comprehensive Canadian pub-grub menu, all at reasonable prices.
