Canadian Alpine Log Chalet

On Canada Day (Canada's birthday), The Ski House of the Day has to be Canadian!  So my pick today is the Alpine Cougar Log Chalet in Fernie, BC.

According to Powderhounds, Fernie is the quintessential Canadian ski resort, and has the reputation for the best powder in the Rockies!  And this ski house has views of some of that powder from its natural alpine setting on a mountain minutes away from the ski slopes.  It's a 1900 sq ft Scandinavian hand-crafted log chalet.  The massive logs that support the roof seem like trees growing right up out of the ground; and I love that wrap-around deck that's covered by the extended roof.

The interior logs are beautiful, and all of that wood gives the comfortable living room has a really nice natural alpine feel:

And I love the gigantic stone fireplace with log mantle in the living is beautiful and perfect in an alpine ski chalet:

If you're going to make a log chalet, this is the way to do it...check out the log stairway and log beams supporting the balcony  and second floor:

...and more logs in one of the 3+ bedrooms in this chalet:

But here's what I think is one of the best features...the inviting hot tub outside tucked under one of those log-supported roofs with views of the Canadian powder:
...a perfect place for apres-ski...especially after skiing all that powder in the Canadian Rockies!
