Kimberley Alpine Resort - A Four-Season Destination
Kimberley Alpine Resort has taken large strides over the past several years to becoming a four-season destination resort. In winter, experience the terrain, which includes 68 defined trails and gladed skiing. Known for the most sun hours than any other resort, consistent snow conditions, long fall line runs and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Kimberley is in a class of its own. Seek the solitude on the cross-country trails right from your doorstep or enjoy activities in the Trickle Creek Winter Adventure Park. For the more adventurous, take on the halfpipe or terrain park. Summertime is family time in Kimberley. The Family Fun Park comes complete with an Alpine Slide, bumper boats, go-carts, mini-golf, and more. Try mountain biking on chairlift accessible terrain or in the adjacent Kimberley Nature Park with over 100km of trails. www.skikimberley.com

Trickle Creek Residence Inn by Marriott
Located in the heart of the Kimberley Alpine Resort only steps from the North Star Express high-speed quad in the winter and across the road from the acclaimed Trickle Creek Golf Resort. The Trickle Creek Residence Inn by Marriott is a beautiful new property with 80 units featuring studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, each with full kitchen, fireplace and balcony overlooking the majestic Rocky Mountains or ski terrain. Guests can enjoy two hot tubs, pool, fitness room, complimentary continental plus breakfast, complimentary airport shuttle, underground parking, ski and golf storage, Kelsey’s Bar & Grill and Wildhorse Retail Shop.

Trickle Creek Golf Resort
Nestled on the slopes of North Star Mountain, adjacent to Kimberley Alpine Resort, the Trickle Creek Golf Resort offers players of all levels an unforgettable golf experience. Canadian golf course Architect Les Furber of Golf Design Services has created 18 truly unique golf holes, in this spectacular mountain setting. With yardage from 5082 to 6896 yards, Trickle Creek Golf Resort can be as easy or as challenging as you wish to make it. Golf Digest has placed Trickle Creek in North America's top ten for value and quality, and awarded them a 4.5 star rating: the highest rating for any golf course in B.C.


Real Estate Development
The echoes of the tremendous development boom in Kimberley is being heard all across Canada. Even people in the United Kingdom have received the news about the incipient Bavarian City of the Rocky Mountains. Properties of the Canadian Rockies (a division of Resorts of the Canadian Rockies) have established development at a number of ski resorts in Western Canada, with current focus directed at Kimberley Alpine Resort and Fernie Alpine Resort. Under the leadership of Charlie Locke, Kimberley has experienced rapid sell-out with their subdivision lots and mountain lodges.

The City of Kimberley
Located only 1km from the Kimberley Alpine Resort village base, the Bavarian City of the Rockies is a quaint town filled with great shopping, a variety of excellent restaurants, pubs with live entertainment, and our renown local hospitality. Drop a quarter in the worlds largest free-standing cuckoo clock, take the Mining Railway tour and learn about Kimberley’s vast mining history, stroll through beautiful Cominco Gardens in the summer, or venture into the extensive wilderness for a day or multi-day backcountry trip.

Kimberley at Night
For the alpine skiers, enjoy the slopes after dark Wednesday through Saturday. For the Nordic skiers, an evening tour is available under the lights on a 3.5km (2.2 mile) loop. Kimberley also offers fine dining and quaint eateries for après ski nourishment and entertainment. Catch a thrilling hockey game with the Dynamiters or Kootenay Ice!

General Kimberley Ski Resort Information

Kimberley Alpine Resort is known for its consistent snow conditions, great fall line runs, plenty of sunshine and regular dumps of dry Purcell powder. Even though Kimberley has a European flavor in its downtown core, the resort village being created above the city reflects early Canadian Alpine Architecture with accents of large hand hewn timber and stonework.

Kimberley Alpine Resort offers a wide variety of terrain to satisfy all ability levels of skiers and riders. The front side of the mountain is well suited for the beginner and novice snow enthusiasts who enjoy long wide-open trails that are groomed to perfection. The Easter Bowl on the backside is a haven for the more adventurous type, with steep fall line runs, tree skiing, big moguls and long lasting powder stashes.

Kimberley is located in the southeast corner of British Columbia on highway 95A at the foot of the Purcell Mountains overlooking the spectacular Rocky Mountains.
