Kimberley Alpine Resort finds itself as the lone Canadian ski resort on a list of most senior-friendly resorts in North America by travelandleisure.com.
Of Kimberley, the magazine said, “Seniors are connected and involved at Kimberley, many through the mountain’s host program, which provides complimentary guided tours for guests each day. This group not only offers this service but actively skis together and shares après social time regularly each week. More than likely, you’ll find that the average age of Mountain Hosts is close to 70, and they are actively engaged in sharing local knowledge and meeting people from all over the world. What’s more, the season pass rate for seniors 65 plus is $1009 (regular adult rate is $1259), while those 75 or older ski all season for $99. Better yet, HomeToGo recently ranked Kimberley as the second most affordable ski resort in North America.”
