Fernie’s #1 place for Après ski since 1962!
Ice cold draft beer, daily drink specials or try the world famous “Mogul Smoker” - accompanied by our popular nachos. Sunny days are great for relaxing on the Kokanee Deck with a cold beer and a freshly grilled burger from our BBQ.

Ski group final Saturday. Classic Nacho’s and Brew. Beef nachos were excellent and fed 5 of us a light bite after a solid morning of ripping spring skiing. Good atmosphere. Safe social distanced seating.

Rolled in for lunch as a group of eight at 1:00pm after an intense morning of skiing. Beers were cold, but that's about where the good ended. From there we were instructed that the deep fryers were not operating, so you can likely imagine what a pub menu looks like without deep fried items. Most opted for the burger option that was cooked on the outdoor grill and came with a side of kettle chips for twenty two dollars. When the burger finally arrived it also came with a bag of Ms. Vickey's original potato chips; yup, you guessed it, those were the kettle chips. Sub par burger and a bag of chips, not exactly what we had expected. And no, this did not occur on a Monday afternoon with the entire ski hill to ourselves, this was Saturday afternoon and the hill was packed with people. We had reservations for supper that evening at Legends which is just across the road and operated by the same team with a very similar menu, needless to say we opted out of that one and headed into town.

The place is legendary! Ask for a server named “the Bone” he’s awesome. Beers are cold, and the service rules. Didn’t have food but who needs that anyways.

They could have a few more Fernie beers on tap though...😉
