Most famous for its winter activities, the open spaces, beautiful landscapes, and the friendly local residents make Fairfield a pleasant place to visit during winters for its picturesque snow attractions. Snowboarding, skiing and associated winter sports are usually what bring tourists to the city even though it offers much more.

In the last census conducted in 2010, the city had just 416 people and a total of 109 families dispersed over a total city area of 0.88 square miles.
