Located at the base of the Purcells, Kimberley is a friendly, wide-open family resort. The terrain grew by a third last winter to 1,800 acres and can now be accessed via a new base-to-summit high-speed quad. The new OWL Learning Center, with surface lifts, is just for beginners. Intermediates will find corduroy cruising down consistent fall lines, and Trennon Paynter, a member of Canada's Freestyle Team, honed his skills on the Easter Bowl moguls. You'll also find legitimate black-diamond runs here, but little in the way of cliffs and chutes. The Trickle Creek Residence Inn, a condo/hotel managed by the Marriott, opened in the new base village this season. Less than 2 miles downvalley, the town of Kimberley-known as the "Bavarian City of the Rockies"-offers a number of tasty German restaurants.

  • Insider Tip
  • The food and the ambiance are authentic Bavarian at the Old Bauernhaus restaurant built nearly 350 years ago in Germany and later moved to Kimberley.
  • Great Deal
  • Three nights' lodging and three days' lifts go for $234 per person, double occupancy at Trickle Creek, Feb. 1 through April. In Kimberley, three-day, three-night lift and lodging packages start as low as $153.
  • Vital Stats
  • Skiable acres: 1,800; number of lifts: 7; vertical rise: 2,465 feet; average annual snowfall: 160 inches; lift ticket price: $29.25.
