On the Snow

Making turns along the Powder Highway? A stop in Kimberley means carving down the longest-lit night-skiing run in North America, enjoying 80 downhill runs at the Kimberley Alpine Resort, and gliding across groomed cross-country tracks at the Kimberley Nordic Club. For non-skiing snow-seekers, winter adventures can be enjoyed on our groomed fat biking and snowshoe trails, or with sled-powered backcountry adventures. Whether you go by guide or strike out on your own, our frostier side makes for one heck of a warm welcome.

On the Water

Take the plunge and keep cool all summer long. From fly-tying fisherfolk, to rapid-chasing rafters and chill-seeking families, we’ve got plenty of nearby rivers, lakes, and hot springs to satisfy all of your wet wishes. Cool off after a long day on the trails, or plan full days of adventure on our waterways with rafting, fishing, paddling, or swimming. Test our waters, and discover why any sunny adventure here should include a heaping dollop or two of Kimberley splish-splash.

80 downhill ski runs, 5 trail networks, 2 mountain ranges, and the longest lit night-skiing run in North America.

On the Trails

Hit the trails, Kimberley-style! With the largest municipal park in British Columbia, 5 separate unpaved trail networks to enjoy, and enough cruisy paved paths to accommodate every strider, stroller, or roller, trail-time is all-time here in Kimberley. In the winter, explore our trail networks by snowshoe, fat bike, or cross-country ski. Come summer, hop on your bike, or lace up a pair of walking shoes before heading to the nearest trailhead. Bring your gear of choice and a map or app to guide you, then cruise into four seasons of fun on our beloved trails. Not sure where to go? Exciting guided treks can be arranged with Tanglefoot Training Center!

On the Course

Swing your way through the Kimberley golf scene. With 3 championship courses, 3 signature holes, and enough challenging fairways to please the pros, golfing here is a sure-shot good time. Tee off along the St. Mary River at Bootleg Gap Golf, chip high on NorthStar Mountain at Trickle Creek Golf Resort, or discover why Purcell Golf has been a Kimberley staple since 1924.
