Kimberley ski resort is a full service ski-in resort located 2.5km (1.5 miles) - or a five minute drive - from the 'Bavarian' town of Kimberley with its additional amenities. The ski area has improved dramatically in the past few years with modern lifts, a big terrain expansion (more than 50%) and the creation of a base village. The original town of Kimberley is a now vibrant former mining-town with a rather surreal feel to it, thanks to the strong onus on Bavarian Germany in some of the bars, restaurants and shops. The crowning glory is Canada's largest Cuckoo clock. The ski resort is jointly owned (with about half a dozen other ski areas) by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies group, the relative proximity of Fernie and Kimberley (90 minutes drive apart) in the south East corner of British Columbia, has led to several UK tour operators offering the two as a joint package (rapidly expanding Intrawest resort Panorama and Big Mountain, south of the border in Montana, are all in the vicinity too, if you have transport).
