Due to late snow pushing the opening of the Kimberley Alpine Resort to December 20, the decision was made to host the annual Community Day — where locals from Kimberley and Cranbrook and surrounding rural areas ski for free — in January.

The date for Community Day is this Sunday, January 11 and if you are a resident of  Canal Flats, Skookumchuck, Meadowbrook, TaTa Creek, Kimberley, Marysville, Wasa, Wycliffe, Moyie, or Cranbrook, you can ski and ride for free. All you will need to receive your free lift ticket is proof of residency such as: Driver’s license, or photo ID accompanied with utilities bill that shows proof of current address.

Burgers will be available for $2 supporting local charity. Local residents can go to Guest Services and receive a voucher that will entitle them to a hamburger for only $2.

Winter Sports School invites beginner Skiers or Snowboarders to a complimentary lesson. There will be a total of 20 Ski and 20 Snowboard spots available Free ski/snowboard rentals for those in these lessons are available as well. Space is limited and guests must pre-register at Guest Services. Please note that these lessons are for new skiers and snowboarders only.
