Kimberley Alpine Resort

Kimberley Alpine Resort’s planned 2023/24 winter season is December 15, 2023 to April 7, 2024.


  • The resort is known for great snow conditions, plenty of sunshine and consistent snowfall of light and dry, Purcell powder. Kimberley offers a wide variety of terrain to satisfy all ability levels: the front side of the mountain is well suited for 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 gladed terrain, moguls and long-lasting powder stashes.
  • The Kimberley Alpine Resort boasts 80 runs plus North America’s largest gladed terrain (over 500 acres), a vertical rise of 751 m (2,465 ft) and an average snowfall of 4 metres (13′), this historical mountain and community will provide more than you think when it comes to fun and adventure.
  • Kimberley Alpine Resort has embraced the growing trend of up-tracking and is the first resort in the region to offer a self-guided up-track route within its ski area boundary. There is a designated up-trackers’ parking area on North Star Drive, on the way to the Nordic Centre. Follow the designated up-tracking route from the parking lot, up the Boundary Run to the Kootenay Haus. Up-trackers are required to have a valid KAR lift ticket / season pass, or a $5 day up-track pass on them at all times.
