Kimberley, Canada

Good for ultimate convenience, mixed ability groups and genuine community character.

Kimberley Mountain Resort is something of a hidden gem for families, located on the Alberta/BC border on the road between the perhaps better known resorts of Fernie and Panorama. Something of a "local’s hill" until recently, investment across the resort has brought new lifts and excellent nursery slope facilities in a protected area literally steps from resort accommodations.

But importantly, despite this upgrade to ultimate convenience for families, Kimberley hasn’t lost what makes it special—a strong community ethos that permeates the resort. Everyone here is friendly, relaxed and knows everyone else. 

While your youngest make their first turn in the protected area at the base, the fast quad will whisk you to the top of some superb long cruisers, or you can venture onto black and double black diamond terrain close by and still be only minutes from your precious offspring at the base.
