A few words on the Snow at Kimberley Alpine Resort

Kimberley has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 150 inches snowfall, due to its location in the snow shadow of the Purcell mountains. It is low enough to see occasional winter rain. Kimberley is known mainly for intermediate terrain though there are some glades on the upper mountain.

Accumulation and Preservation

Kimberley has moderate terrain and some snowmaking to assist early season coverage. Primary exposure is east though 1/3 of the area faces north. Widespread melt/freeze conditions are likely in March if it is sunny. Kimberley like many resorts has its most reliable snow conditions from mid-January to mid-March.
