Kimberley Alpine Resort’s annual Community Day will this year fall on Sunday, Jan. 15, giving locals the chance to ride the mountain for free.
Residents of Kimberley, Canal Flats, Meadowbrook, TaTa Creek, Skookumchuck, Marysville, Wasa, Wycliffe, Moyie, Wardner, Creston and Cranbrook are able to pick up complimentary tickets at guest services.
Residents must show photo ID and proof of local residency, including a drivers license or pay stub, to pick up their ticket.
After dealing with the impacts of COVID and then the arson last year, KAR general manager Ted Funston commented that this year’s Community Day will feel extra special after everything the community and the resort staff have been through.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone from the Valley back up to the resort,” Funston said.
There will be burgers for sale for $4 at a barbecue in the plaza, with proceeds going towards supporting the Kimberley Volunteer Ski Patrol and the Kimberley Disabled Skiers Association. To get yours, head to Guest Services and pick up a voucher.
The Telus Winter Sports School will also be offering 20 per cent off on group lessons for all ages and ability levels for skiers and snowboarders. Private lessons will also be offered for a promo price and must be booked 48 hours in advance by calling the Winter Sports School at 250-432-0315.
Rentals will also be discounted by 20 per cent for those in group and private lessons.
