Kimberley Alpine Resort recently re-posted a Freeskier article and we couldn't help but share it considering our new partnership this season. Contact us for details on exclusive packages. Turns out Boulder Hut Adventures and KAR have a few things in common. We have excerpted some highlights.

"All about the POW! Our surrounding geography creates perfect conditions for thelegendary Purcell powder, some of the most consistently dry snow in the Kootenays. Easy Going. Easy Getting There: Kimberley is only a 20 minute drive from either The Canadian Rockies International Airport, or from Highway 3, one of Canada’s two primary east-west routes."

"Variety of terrain. We have something for every level of skier.  One of Canada’s massive airtime World Cup competitors Darren Thorburn insists Kimberley has some of the best skiing in the world."

"Kimberley keeps it real. Drop into the oldest bar in town, where you might sit in the corner of wisdom, where retired miners offer free advice: “If you’re drinking and ya smell burning hair, you better ease the f&%k up.This is a town ... where the East Kootenays’ fastest growing city of 35 and under gather in the climbing gym or new outcrop of ethnic restaurants. If you’re looking for valet parking, and long nightclub lineups, you’re in the wrong town. Kimberley keeps it real, where local characters’ retro ski gear isn’t a fashion statement."
