From Nov. 1 to April 15, there are winter parking regulations in effect for the City of Fernie so the city can deal with seasonal conditions. An alternating parking schedule is implemented during this time period so workers can, on alternating days, clear snow to the boulevards.

On Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, there is no parking on the South or East side of roadways. It is the reverse on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday where residents may not park on the North or West side of roadways

Bylaw enforcement has made amendment that was adopted by council which increases the impound fee of a vehicle from $7 per day to $10 per day. Council also added a 10 per cent administrative fee to all towing and impounds charges.

On the cities website, Fernie.ca, there are maps for each borough available that show what side of the road to park on each day.
