Kimberley

This is a place where the laundromat's magazine rack includes the latest ski magazine. Its Nordic ski tracks extend for 64 kilometres - all lit up nightly. Kimberley is an ideal stop for families and skiers looking to rip up some glades and surf some sweet snow. The convenience of getting here includes arriving by air at the Canadian Rockies International Airport, 20 kilometres from Kimberley. That puts you on the chairlift within 20 minutes.
