Fernie Alpine Resort’s lift-accessed mountain camping lets you sleep out in a tent up on a mountain while skipping the hard part of hiking up there with food and gear. Instead, campers ride up to the site on the resort’s Timber Chairlift. Hosts are on hand to assist with tent set up and campers eat dinner and breakfast at the nearby mid-mountain Lost Boys Cafe (there’s a bar there for evening beverages as well). Lift-accessed camping is offered on Saturday nights throughout the summer months.

Secure your spot by calling the resort at 250-423-2435.
