Review: Lizard Creek lodge in Fernie, British Columbia

There’s only one thing I love better than fresh powder on a ski day – waking up in a ski-in-ski-out accommodation and being the first one on the chairlift. After years of hearing about how great the snow is at Fernie Mountain Resort, we finally had the chance to try it out. Thankfully, we stayed at Lizard Creek Lodge, which is right next to the chairlifts, offering you the chance to wake up, have a good meal, and ski right from the lodge to the chair.

Another great thing about Lizard Creek Lodge is that each suite contains a full kitchen. Whether you have your family with you or just like cooking your own food, a kitchen really makes the trip more affordable. We made our own breakfasts each morning, which saved us time to do more skiing. In the evening, we went to the Rusty Edge for some delicious burgers and ribs.

When you’re surrounded by sparkling snow, a fireplace really adds to the experience. Each suite also has a fireplace, which keeps you warm during the winter months and really adds to the ambiance of the place. The flatscreen TV also comes with a DVD player, which we actually hooked up to our laptop so we could watch Netflix instead. The couch also pulls out into a sofa bed.

The most important part of any accommodation is the bed. After all, we all want a good sleep. Thankfully, the beds at Lizard Creek Lodge are incredibly comfortable.

In addition to everything mentioned above, Lizard Creek Lodge also offers three outdoor hot tubs and a heated pool. Each suite also comes with a locker for storing skis and the lodge is also home to the super cool Ice Bar, which is right next to the upscale Cirque Restaurant.

You really can’t find a better place on the mountain!
