There are quite a bit of logistic drawbacks that this resort has. After weighing / comparing it with Fernie and Sunshine Village I prefer the second ones. Here is why: 1) Kimberley has a SEVERE bottleneck situation at its base station. In other words, it has only one quad chair to get all the customers up the hill and to... More

We were lucky enough to visit and ski Kimberley Alpine Resort during a winter storm, which resulted in tons of fresh powder! We didn't have to wait in line for the chair lifts.

Nice hill. Well taken care of. Need to remove rocks from the run. The day ski lodge was nice but not able to see the skiers coming down the hill. I would recommend for anyone who likes to take their family skiing.

If you're not one for the crowds and high prices of the more well known resorts elsewhere in the province and south of the border, then Kimberley is the place for you. I love how much of a local feel this resort has, yet all the amenities for an extended stay visitor are readily available. There is an on mountain... More

Firstly the great things...The Ski Instructor my son had was fantastic, really encouraging and positive. The food at both places to eat was really good. The service from the Ski shop was great. Renting equipment took an age before we even got to the stage of getting the equipment. We had very little help with the boots for my son... More

Nice managable skiresort for families and people who like it quiet. Would have been way better with more snow, but won't blame that on the skihill. Gives you plently runs for powdering, but you better get out in the morning. Only four stars, because i had the feeling that they took their time with the terrainpark and took more care... More

We were in Kimberley at the end of December. Kimberley is such an awesome mountain and our time their flew by! I wish we could have spent more time. The runs are good for those learning yet they offer a number of challenging runs as well. The mountain could have used a bit more snow, but it wasn't that bad!... More

We came to the hill Dec.31 and had 3 rentals to get and lift passes to purchase and were on the hill in approx. 40 min. Lineups were small and hill was in average condition with some runs showing twigs and rocks. Final stretch to lowest quad chair steep and icy, especially later in the day when more traffic had...

Thank you for your comments, right after opening at the end of the December is usually a time when we are still acquiring snow and working on getting our runs covered as best we can with our outdoor ops team.

I wanted to treat my girlfriend to a wonderful Christmas and Kimberley Resort helped that happen! The queues for the main chair were short and it's a great long run back to the resort, with plenty of other options. The piste is freshly groomed at 4 ish when they reopen for night skiing! Superb! I prebooked my rental and the... More
