Kimberley is a good place to be wintering. This season sees Kimberley’s downtown turn in to a magical world: lit-up, glowing and inviting. The ski-hill perches above clouds,either impeccably groomed or smothered in legendary Purcell powder. There are trails for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Snowmobile tours take visitors further afield. And for those intent on creating their own adventures, there are the Purcell Mountains of snow-covered opportunity, just down the road and in the backyard.
Winter in Kimberley means warm drinks, rosy cheeks, coffee shop vibrations and grand reminders that the simple company of quality human beings keeps the cold at bay. Kimberley winters offer plenty of sunshine, consistent snow conditions on the hill, and a charming downtown. The pace may be chill, but the only frosty reception is found on the early morning trees.
