From a fully guided trip to Japan in 2019, to ski mountaineering objectives, or hut based powder holidays, the Mountain Addicts are here to help. Find out more on our skiing page.

Intro to skiing touring courses are a new addition to the Mountain Addicts menu this winter. Learn all about the gear, the terrain, and how to move in the mountains. Basic avalanche safety is also covered.

Mountain Addicts is the premiere provider of Avalanche safety courses in Fernie BC. Choose from the AST 1, AST 2, or Companion Rescue Skills course. 

The Mountain Addicts

Mountain Addicts owner, Melissa Makepeace, moved to Fernie in 2005. Like many others, she became addicted to powder skiing and has since been obsessed with travelling through the mountains on her skis. Hence the company name! 

All of our team members have the same passion for the mountain life, and they are eager to share that passion with you. Our guides and instructors all call Fernie home. We are proud to live in this small mountain town and offer quality guiding and instructing so that you too can satisfy your craving!
