Kimberley Alpine Resort is located just a half hour from Cranbrook, and within a 5 minute drive of downtown Kimberley. They’ve got a wide assortment of runs spanning 4 chairs and a beginner area. There are condos, restaurants, bars, and everything else you’d expect from a resort at the base of the primary quad chair. The snow here is good, with nice powder on the higher elevations. There is plenty to explore for all ability levels.
The City of Kimberley is also well worth checking out. They’ve closed vehicle access to their downtown core, making it a wonderful pedestrian zone with restaurants, indoor climbing, and specialty shops. Kimberley is at the end of the highway, with nothing beyond, but it is well worth a visit. A true mountain town, complete with loads of Bavarian cuisine.
