Don't be deceived by Kimberley Alpine Resorts unassuming look from the highway or downtown - this hill has something for everyone! Snow conditions were great ALL SEASON - deep & fluffy, never had an icy day all season. Most people don't know how sunny Kimberley is year round, makes for nice mild temperature skiing all season as well.

Even better, I don't think I stood in line for more than 2 mins all season (except once during xmas holidays, I waited about 4 mins!). Makes it easy to get in A TON OF RUNS in a day. This is a very family friendly hill, BUT there is still about 40% black runs, so check it out!

Stemwinder Bar has awesome atmosphere and food for the apres ski as well.
