A very successful, busy holiday season has passed and most of Kimberley’s out of town guests have headed home, leaving the slopes of the Kimberley Alpine Resort  a mecca for local skiers and boarders.

And now it’s time to celebrate local supporters with the annual Community Day on Sunday, January 10. This is the day that KAR offers free skiing and riding to locals — all you need is photo ID and proof of local residency, such as a driver’s license or pay stub. And by local, KAR doesn’t just mean Kimberley residents. The free lift tickets are available to residents of Canal Flats, Skookumchuck, Meadowbrook, TaTa Creek, Kimberley, Marysville, Wasa, Wycliffe, Moyie, Wardner and Cranbrook.

You can also go to guest services and pick up a voucher for a $2 hamburger.

There are also ten spots available for a free lesson, complete with free equipment rental at 10:30 a.m. These lessons are for new skiers and boarders only. With only ten spots available, space is limited. Guests should pre-register at the Winter Sports School Cabin by calling 250-432-0315.

Kimberley Alpine thanks its partner Sysco for its assistance with the barbecue.
