Kimberley Alpine Resort
Description:

While other nearby resorts get more attention, Kimberley has plenty to offer every level of skier and rider. Experts may have to search a bit for some challenge but there is a host of trees and steeps to be found across the resort's 1,800 skiable acres. Intermediates have the most options as 65% of Kimberley's terrain is earmarked as green circle and blue square. Twenty-six miles (33 kilometers) of groomed cross-country terrain is available and two kilometer's are open for night skiing.

Pros: Good Vertical, Good nightlife not to far away, great grooming

Cons: severe bottleneck on busy days at the main chair. low average snowfall

Kimberley has spectacular views and really good weather. The grooming is always good due to a lack of crowds most of the time. The park sucks. Similar to Marmot Basin in Alberta, They both get the same annual average snowfall at 400 cm. Really not that mcuh powder days. Also limited steeps, but thats not to say they aren't there. Just hard to find. Excellent family resort with good lodging.

Pros: no crowds, easy shuttle from town

Cons: no serious steeps

Terrain was great for me, just what I like, blues and blacks. It's colder here than much of US skiing so prepare witha proper base layer. This place was never busy and the town made for a great ski trip.
