Kimberley Alpine Resort opens backside runs this Saturday

KAR will also open the beginner's Magic Carpet, live music at Stemwinder

Anton's Run at Kimberley Alpine Resort

The weather outside has been frightful, but for snow-making, it’s delightful.

Cold weather means snow-making on Northstar Mountain has been maximized, says Megan Field from KAR. So much so, that the Resort will open the Easter Chair and the beginner’s Magic Carpet beginning this Saturday, December 17.

“Runs will be added in the Black Forest, Vimy Ridge, and Tamarack Ridge Areas. This will include Upper Anton’s, Dean Left, Dean Right, Flapper, Purl, All Over, Upper Caper, Vimy Ridge, Lower Caper to the Easter Chair, Twilight to Rung, Eureka, and Midget accessed by Twilight.  Exit ways out of the backside will include Vimy Ridge to Hoot’s Way and Ridgeway,” Field said.

Catch George Plant playing live in the Stemwinder on Saturday and Sunday when you’re in to warm up.

While conditions are getting better, skiers are still advised to be aware of  early season hazards. Early season lift ticket discounts are still in effect.
