The Raging Elk Hostel, Canadian ski hostels, Fernie hostel, Fernie Backpackers, or The Raging Elk Adventure Lodge, any way you put it we are Located in the Gem of The Canadian Rockies, Fernie B.C is a treasure chest of adventure. Epic powder skiing in epic powder, that's what Fernie is all about in the winter, and the Raging Elk just adds to the adventure. The summer also rocks with some of the best mountain biking in the Canadian Rockies, hiking is still unspoiled in the Elk Valley. You can hike many trails in the area and still only see one or two other hikers on your adventure. Being only 4 hrs from Banff Park, Fernie offers the beautiful Rockies with the warm B.C summer nights were dusk comes around 10pm, and not the crazy pace of Banff Park, but the laid back pace of the kootenay Rockies.
