Visitor Reviews of Kimberley

Powder from United Kingdom writes:

I worked in Kimberley during the season of 09/10 and fell in love with the place. I have been back for holidays ever since. If you are used to skiing in the busy resorts in Europe this is a perfect change. The slopes and hotels are situated up hill (approx 45 min walk) away from the main town of Kimberley.

Good points:

*** During the week the slopes are very quiet. A times I never made it out till 11am - 12pm and could still find areas of freshly groomed piste that hadn't been touched yet. There was also many times that I was the only person on a particular run and didn't see another skier till I joined the bigger main slopes. The resort does busy up a bit at the weekends with the locals however the queues for the lifts are nothing compared to Europe (a 5 min wait at the most)

*** The ski school are fantastic and very flexible. The standard of teaching is great and class sizes are very small. Even if I paid for a group lesson there were several occasions that I was the only person in the group that day so got a private lesson instead!

*** The Kimberley lift pass also includes Fernie resort. Fernie is famous for it's steep, deep powder bowls and is certainly worth a visit

Bad points:

*** There are no grocery stores up by the hotels on the ski hill. The nearest one is in the main town of Kimberley (45 min walk). This is a bit inconvenient. Although there is a ski bus that runs between the hotels and the town of Kimberley the service isn't that great, doesn't run that often and finishes relatively early at night. Taxis are expensive! (about $12 each way). There is limited restaurants at the hotels ( 3 the last time i was there). There is a bigger selection down town.

*** I would definitely recommend hiring a car from the airport as there are no car hire companies in Kimberley. The nearest one is Cranbrook (25 min drive). I found it quite restricting not having one. There are lots of other places to visit outside of Kimberley that would be impossible without a car e.g other near by ski resorts, radium hot springs

*** The journey is very long and would suggest a trip of longer than 7 nights due to this. It takes a day or 2 to recover and get used to the time difference.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday where you ski all day and have a quiet evening then this is a great place to go. Great snow, great slopes and very friendly locals. I wouldn't recommend this resort for younger groups of people who are looking for entertainment in the evenings. There is also limited things for kids to do in the evenings and they are not allowed in the bars after 8pm.
