In the Southeastern corner of British Columbia, an intentional detour off Highway-95 will take you to our one-and-only traffic light intersection and the heart of downtown Kimberley. With the Canadian Rockies in our front yard and the Purcell Mountains in our backyard, Kimberley is the perfect starting point for memory-making and adventure-seeking. In Kimberley, we’ve got all that you’ve come to expect in a classic B.C. mountain town, with a few surprises up our sleeves.
Ski and Snowboard
Find 80+ runs and short lift lines at the Kimberley Alpine Resort. Or, ski as the locals do and earn your turns on the up-track before chilling out in our lovingly dug sun pits.
Head underground to learn about our town’s 125-year mining history, and don’t forget to stop at the gas station for organic snacks and delicious cold-pressed juices on the way.
- Dave Quinn, Go Cranberley -As we all know, Kimberley is one of the coolest towns on the planet
Soak up some Kimberley culture with arts and entertainment at Centre 64, beer steins and bocce balls at one of our many festivals, or by simply kicking back with a great local band at your favourite watering hole.
Mix and match 300+ days of sunshine a year and sunny dispositions within our pint-drinking, patio-loving, in-the-know locals. This is Kimberley: a little less complicated, a little less braggadocious, and a little more on the chill side of cool.
Delight in Kimberley’s cuisine scene, then wet your whistle with a hand-squeezed lemonade from the Thursday Market, a BC-roasted coffee at your favourite cafe, or a creative cocktail from one of our local drinkeries.
Whether you arrive by air or on four wheels, Kimberley’s pedestrian-only downtown core makes restaurants, shops, and recreation easily accessible on foot or by bike. Plus, catching a shuttle from the nearby airport and throughout town makes it easy to ditch the car and come as you are.
