Though little known to British
skiers and snowboarders Canadians know Kimberley Alpine
Resort as the "Jewel In The Crown Of Canadian Skiing".
Unlike its near neighbours Fernie, Panorama, Banff,
Lake Louise and Kicking Horse, Kimberley rarely
suffers from the extreme low temperatures which can be
found in these other resorts.
Its position in the Purcell
Mountains also means that avalanche danger is pretty
much non existent, yet its this same position which
guarantees it regular falls of fluffy white champagne
powder snow! Come join us in Kimberley for the 2011
-2012 season and experience unbelievable snow conditions
empty runs and no long lift lines. Self catering
accommodation is plentiful and there is even a
Luxury Catered Chalet where you can be pampered
during your stay. Just check out
Sunshine Chalet all rooms with en suite facilities
and private balcony access.
2010-2011 ski season Kimberley has had more than 20 feet
2009-2010 was regarded by the locals as a Bad
Season with just 17 feet of powder snow!
2008-2009 was another great season with over 19 feet
of Champagne Purcell Powder Snow
2007- 2008 Over 20 feet of powder snow in

Country---Hiking---Tele marking---Kimberley Has It All.
Kimberley Alpine Resort the best ski resort
destination for ski bums and families
2008/2009 was another great season with
over 19feet of Champagne Purcell Powder Snow in Kimberly and for most of
the season there were no crowded runs or long lift lines on the
Kimberley Ski Hill Hopefully 2010 will continue in the same vein!
Having snowboarded for the last 7 or so
years it was a refreshing experience to learn from the kids and put on a
pair of skis again. There is a very definite movement by the youngsters
away from snowboards and back to skiing.
The following pages contain photographs I
took during the last four seasons I will change or add to them on a
basis and of course add new ones once this season provides me with
some more. Plus information on activities, vacations, lodging and more.
Have a great season and we will see you in
Kimberley the best little resort in Canada.
a great place to stay
