Thank you for our week of wining, dining and skiing. You are a truly gracious host and have become a new friend.

BRILLIANT TIME! Thanks so much for making our first trip to Fernie so incredible. The chalet , guiding and gourmet meals exceeded all expectations. We'll be back!
Karen and Al

Thank you for such a fabulous week. Your fun loving spirit made our trip most enjoyable. Thanks for making the extra effort to prepare terrific vegetarian meals for me. We appreciated your adventurous spirit on the mountain and at home. And your hospitality was exceptional. Hope to enjoy our next trip with you.

Dearest Sue, You are the dominatrix of the slopes. I thought I came for downhill skiing, why do I always seem to be climbing upwards for powder after you! Yet another fabulous holiday, 9th one with you. Skiing was great, however you entice me to ski runs which are unsuitable for my advancing age! Many thanks.

We will never forget this holiday, for the obvious reason , our engagement, but many other reasons made our stay great- the powder, the food and your chalet- a real home from home. We'll definitely be back.Thanks for a fab holiday. Canadian Powder Tours kicks ass!!

Super Susan! You are an inspiration!! We loved your home that you have hand built for people like us. We love your ethics and view of life. We love your gourmet food. We love your guiding. Its been a great holiday with you and our old mates from London. We'll see you again.

Had a propa sorted time. Gave it large the whole time we were here. Sue was so good to us, she is as sweet as a petal floating on a summers breeze! Saw the beavers building their dam which was super cool. Had way too much to drink , mostly Sues fault,Totally worn out now, but it was more than worth it. Awesome.

This place is fantastic. Thanks Susan for everything you have done. The food is amazing, the chalet is so warm and cozy and the views are fantastic. All that and we get to go snowboarding down the best runs on the mountain. You've stretched us, pulled us, broken us and taken us to the next level! We've had a fantastic couple of weeks. Thanks.

Could you have made this holiday any better? NO! You could not! It was the MOST BEST trip in my entire life. I really don't want to go.

Lucky me! 2nd trip to my "home" in Fernie. Arrived to a big powder day (40cms), and I ate snow all day with Sue and Ralph! Thanks for a great holiday as usual. Hopefully see you next season if not before.

FERNIE ROCKS! Third year in a row and third time lucky with loads of freshies in the first week and great piste riding in the second!(barely worth going out on it with our new capacity as FULLY FLEDGED POWDER SNOBS!!) I feel like we have consolidated loads of friendships in Fernie and started a few more new ones. Knuckle dragging rules.

Book now for Sue's tele guiding tours in 2001-02 if you can move after Ralph's mega breakfasts!!
Anne & John

Susan and Ralph- a combination to match the great partnerships of history. You are great , hospitality , fun and food , all as we remembered it, enlivened by congenial fellow guests. Your new chalet is excellent. Good luck for the rest of the season I hate to think how hard you worked in the summer to build the new chalet. Its all brilliant. Team telemark will be back so get off the skis and boards and onto the teles!!
Anne & John

If ever I need a role model for hosts you have a job offer any time. Thank you so much. p.s. great steak too!

Deep respect to the Fernie gang. One week ain't long enough!

So much powder we needed a snorkel, great food , and company. FERNIE ROCKS!, will be back 2001 , for sure!

We arrived as strangers, but we depart as friends.
Dear Sue and Ralph, thank you for welcoming us into your lovely home. Fernie and the skiing have been wonderful. The food and hospitality beyond compare. Don't change the formula, we've had the best holiday in a long time. Thanks from us all.
Happy have we met
Happy have we been
Happy may we part
and happy meet again
