Hi,

Greyhound bus comes to mind.

There is also a shuttle service that runs from Kimberley to Fernie, so if you could find your way to Kimberley (probably via Greyhound) you could catch that shuttle bus as well.

You could take a taxi from the airport to Kimberley, but I imagine it would be quite costly.

I didn't realize the Cranbrook airport was so far from Cranbrook! After looking at the location on the link Sam posted, you should be able to take a taxi to Kimberley for pretty much the same cost as going into Cranbrook - about $25 to $30.

Here is a link to the website for the Kimberley/ Fernie shuttle:

Note that, since the ski hill is not open yet, no schedules are posted on the website at the moment, but it should be updated soon. (They are slated to open Dec 6 this year.)

Yes, the airport is about half way between Cranbrook and Kimberley.

Cab fare from Airport, last week, was $55.00 - 12 minute ride. I'd phone one of the local cab companies and ask about a "flat rate" trip to Fernie from the airport. Believe they both have 12 passenger vans wtih "ski carrier tops" for moving groups around.

There is an Airport "shuttle" for $15.00 to downtown Cranbrook hotels. This "could" include a stop at the Greyhound Bus Depot - shuttle drives right by.

Renting a vehiicle is usually the simplest way to go, as above logistics would be a pain.

If you are coming during ski season I'd email the friendly folks at www.skilouise.com. Volume warranted they will run a shuttle bus from their Kimberely to Fernie Alpine Resorts.
