Kimberley Alpine Resort pushes opening date back

Resort moves from Dec. 11 to ‘reviewing situation on day-to-day basis’

While the recent dip in temperatures has allowed them to ramp up snowmaking operations, Kimberley Alpine Resort announced Tuesday, Dec. 7 that they have to reassess their opening date and rather than opening on Dec. 11, they will be reviewing the situation on a day-to-day basis.

KAR pass holders are able to ski for free at other RCR resorts until the resort opens, but unfortunately the nearest location Fernie Alpine Resort, has been dealing with even worse early-winter conditions and have also had to push back their opening date.
