This local ski resort is situated just a few minutes (4 kilometres / 2.5 miles) from the old mining town of Kimberley, which is now an imitation Bavarian city. A community bus travels between the resort and town on an hourly basis (until 9pm), or if you don’t have a rental car you can catch a taxi.
Kimberley has a reputation for light dry powder and has built some fast new chair lifts and increased facilities at the base of their slopes. There are many long, open gentle fall-line runs, often coated with fluffy Purcell Powder. There are also long runs for more advanced skiers, and some of the best bumps in North America. In addition to the skiing in Kimberley itself (76km of pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Canadian Rockies Super Pass ski resorts.
