About Fernie Alpine Resort

Located in Fernie, British Columbia, Fernie Alpine Resort offers a majestic mountain venue ideal for weddings and events. The resort features numerous convenient and luxurious amenities along with a stunning setting to help make your gathering one to remember. Blending sophistication with classic log and stone architecture, the venue can easily be adapted to fit your dream day.

Facilities and Capacity

Weddings at Fernie Alpine Resort can begin with a ceremony in one of three locations. The first is the Lost Boys Café located at the top of the Timber Bowl Express chairlift. It is surrounded by the Lizard Mountain Range, providing a magical backdrop for “I dos.” Here, you can express your love and commitment on a wrap-around deck before up to 100 guests. Another ceremony option is Elk Top. This area is at the top of the Elk Quad chairlift and the deck looks like it’s floating in mid-air. It overlooks the Elk Valley’s tranquil and natural surroundings. The Elk Top can also accommodate up to 100 guests. Vow exchanges can take place at Lizard Creek by the lodge as well. Its lawn has a beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. This space accommodates up to 120 and is ideal for those that want a ground-level ceremony.

Receptions can be held in one of three locations at the resort. In the Cirque Restaurant, guests encounter a dining setting that demonstrates a romantic and refined vibe. The restaurant's decorations and design are well suited to nuptial celebrations. Cirque can accommodate up to 120 guests. In the Griz Lodge, couples can host fetes with 125 to 200 guests. Soon-to-be newlyweds can also organize weddings at the Griz Bar. It is situated in the resort’s village plaza and is both relaxed and elevated, ideal for casual and upscale events alike. The bar can accommodate up to 80 guests.

    Lizard Creek Lodge turned out to be an amazing venue for our wedding. We wanted to have a wedding that would facilitate a weekend with family and friends and that's exactly what we got. We chose not to have our outdoor ceremony at Lizard Creek, however they still kept the option open for us to have an indoor ceremony if the weather was miserable (they kept this option open up until 11am the day of). The Event Coordinator was very helpful and thorough in ensuring the reception was set-up the way we wanted it. Bar and food service was great. Our wedding was around 95 people and I would suggest not going much more than that. It was an intimate reception and more than one guest commented on how great everything was. Plus we were able to spend time with people the days before and after the wedding as many people made a weekend holiday out of it.

    We had our wedding October 5, 2013 at Lizard Creek Lodge, in all honesty it was everything we imagined and more!!

    Stacey was such a great help in combination with our wedding planner to ensure the night we hiccup free. They lodge itself is beautiful, rooms were fantastic. We had 135 guests and all stayed at the lodge, we are a month later and everyone is still talking about how amazing the lodge was. Many have already booked vacations over the winter there. The great room really doesn't need much in terms of decorations, as it is already tastefully done and hard to compete with the mountain view.

    The food and beverage team was fantastic as well. Supper was amazing, i was mad with myself the next day for not getting a second serving. Food was excellent. Drinks were poured in an efficient manner and there was an abundance to be had.

    I can honestly say that without the team they have a lizard creek we wouldn't have had a perfect weekend. If your on the fence, jump off and book your event at lizard creek lodge.

    They say that the venue is suitable for up to 150 people, but that would be an extremely tight squeeze, as we had 120 fit QUITE cozily. Otherwise, everything else was absolutely lovely.
