Ask any local and they’ll tell you that conditions at the Kimberley Alpine Resort are great this year. The skiing world agrees.
Kimberley comes in at number ten on snowbrain.com’s list of the deepest snow packs in North America.
Only one other Canadian or British Columbia ski hill made the list with Kimberley — Big White at number seven. The rest of the list includes Whitefish and Blacktail Mountain in Montana, Lookout Pass in Idaho, several resorts in Washington and one in Alaska.
Kimberley’s base is at 74 inches (188 cm) which Jessie Ferguson from Tourism Kimberley says places it well ahead of such famous names as Vale, Aspen, Whistler and more.
Kimberley had the advantage of an early winter storm that laid down a nice base, more snow when other resorts in the region had rain, and just enough snow since then to keep it in good condition.
The latest conditions reported by the resort are that all runs are open and machine groomed. The Resort had a busy weekend with the Slopes for Hope event on Saturday and B.C Family Day with half price lift tickets on Monday.
