Locals ski for free Sunday at Kimberley Alpine Resort

It's community appreciation day at the resort; a great chance to check out the conditions

Despite the bone-chilling cold last weekend a fair number of locals turned out for the Kimberley Alpine Resort’s preview weekend and were treated to the best snow conditions in years. The Resort opens for the season this weekend.

As the Kimberley Alpine Resort begins full time operation for the weekend and prepares for the busy holiday season ahead, it’s time to say thanks to locals for supporting their home hill.

Residents of Canal Flats, Skookumchuck, Meadowbrook, TaTa Creek, Kimberley, Marysville, Wasa, Wycliffe, Moyie, and Cranbrook will receive free lift tickets this Sunday, December 15, as the Resort celebrates Community Day. All you have to do is bring a piece of photo identification and a utility bill that indicates your current address.

New skiers and boarders can also get in on complimentary lessons. There are 20 ski and 20 snowboard spots available. Check with guest services to see about a lesson either morning or afternoon.

Burgers will be available for $2 each with proceeds from the barbecue going to a local charity.

Resort area manager Ted Funston says that last weekend offered the best snow conditions the Resort has seen in 22 years. Head up on Sunday and see of he’s right.
