There are quite a bit of logistic drawbacks that this resort has. After weighing / comparing it with Fernie and Sunshine Village I prefer the second ones. Here is why: 1) Kimberley has a SEVERE bottleneck situation at its base station. In other words, it...More

Nice hill. Well taken care of. Need to remove rocks from the run. The day ski lodge was nice but not able to see the skiers coming down the hill. I would recommend for anyone who likes to take their family skiing.

Nice managable skiresort for families and people who like it quiet. Would have been way better with more snow, but won't blame that on the skihill. Gives you plently runs for powdering, but you better get out in the morning. Only four stars, because i...More
