Billed as a family resort----bullcrap

We have spent the last eight winters at Kimberley and have watched the management of the hill go downhill.Used to be they groomed a number of runs for families which relieved the pressure of the more varied terrain for the rest of us. Now they groom very little, 12/75 runs on Easter Sunday 2018 which in itself tells one that all they are interested in is your money and you end up with beginner skiers in areas they should never visit. On top of this there are a few slow skiing areas which a large percentage of the skiing population tend to ignore the worst being the bridge over Northstar road, as the only way to downhill access the quad chair and the village /parking lot areas it is a poorly thought out run. It is totally out of control and the management does nothing to try and make the situation better.
To top it all off they dropped Easter eggs from a helicopter Easter Sunday but have been using the excuse they have had equipment difficulties with their groomer fleet, possibly the money for the helicopter should be spent on ensuring your hill is ready for the skiers who PAID to use it.

Barely any snow mostly ice. The prices are over priced, and when I asked if they could help me with adjusting my binding they wouldn't and made me rent skis. It would have been fine but they still made me pay full price. And most of those skis are either found on the hill by the people that work there lost by skiers or donated.

Decent skiing!

Kimberly is a great place for family fun! The resort offers lots of beginner stuff, but snow can be an issue sometimes, especially later in the season.

The town of Kimberly itself is pretty quiet. Again, though another cute and safe Kootenay town.

Kimberly was okay but was a further drive than Fernie and not as much annual snowfall as Fernie.

One of the days I was there, the fog was so thick I couldn't see 15 feet in front of me. It was trippy.

They had this really sweet Italian restaurant named Perry's pizza. I'm glad I went, but I will probably not be making a return visit.
