Scout tips

  • The condo units are individually owned and furnished
  • The units are on a “first come, first serve basis” , so reserve early as management tend to offer the more modern units to those who do so
  • No fire place in the units
  • Communal coin-operated laundry facility


The first and the oldest lodge in the Fernie area, the Griz Inn has a very relaxed, friendly and laid back atmosphere. It is a classic old ski lodge style and since it was one of the first in the area, the ski resort was actually built around it. This is why it has a very convenient ski-in ski-out location.

Griz Inn is a combination of hotel rooms and condo units. The room types range from standard hotel rooms, studios, one-bedroom condo with loft, two-bedroom condos with loft, and three-bedroom condos with loft. The condos are quite small but cozy, and feature eclectic furnishings and interiors (they’re all individually owned and furnished). If you’ve been skiing since the 70s, we’re sure they’ll remind you of how it was back in the days. The units can sleep from one to up to 13 people, depending on the unit type. Some of the units face the mountains and they get spectacular views, but if you do choose a hotel room, you will be facing the back and you get lovely view of cars in the parking lot!  Hence Scout does not recommend the hotel rooms unless you are not planning to spend much time in the room at all.

Griz Inn has an on-site full service restaurant called the Rusty Edge, which is open daily for lunch, apres ski, dinner and late night drinks. The restaurant also houses a Big Bang Bagels outlet which is a Fernie institution. Facilities and amenities in Griz Inn include an indoor pool, two outdoor hot tubs (which will be converted into one big hot tub in the future), communal laundry facilities, and 24-hour guests services.
