Hit the slopes at Kimberley

Kimberley Alpine Resort receives 100 cm of snow in the last few days

The chairlifts at KAR await you this weekend.

Things are shaping up for one of the best opening days in a long time at Kimberley Alpine Resort, says KAR area manager Ted Funston.

The Resort announced this week that they will open for a preview weekend this Saturday and Sunday.

The Resort will then close for the week and re-open for the full season on December 14.

“We’ve received over 100 cm over the last week, which fell on an already good snowfall of over a metre. This is one of the biggest snowfalls people can remember in Kimberley.Our year to date snowfalls total is now 207 cms, the largest we have had on record for this date in over 20 years,”  Funston said.

“This will be a great start for the locals, and it’s great to get the word out on our great snow to people outside of Kimberley who are planning where to go for their Christmas holidays. Kimberley is going to be the place to be.”

KAR recommends that locals come up and pick their passes up at Guest Services before the weekend. Hours are 9 to 4, but will be extended to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday for pass processing.
