The massive ski area includes 4 sections: Northstar mountain, Tamarack Ridge, Vimy Ridge and Black Forest with 68 marked runs and 12 in the glades.
The new Owl zone is super for learning the basics if you’re skiing for the first time. Beginners and early intermediates should start off on Northstar mountain. Easy Way and Canada Way will get beginners started while more confident skiers can try Midwinter and Ego Alley. There’s some terrain for experts here too: black diamonds include Blueberry and Blast Off and the fearless can conquer double diamonds like Jack the Bear and Robinsons.
Hoot’s Way, Shooter and Nate’s on Tamarack Ridge are suitable for beginners although most of the terrain is for experts – there are 15 black diamond runs (check out Rush, Good Luck and local’s favourite Tamarack).
Over on Vimy Ridge, there’s something for all abilities including the green Caper, blue Purl and notorious black diamond All Over.
Black Forest is, you guessed it, pretty much all expert terrain with 19 black diamond trails including some super glades like Twixt and Angus. There are 4 blue trails (Notre Dame is the most popular) and 2 easy greens (Pine Flats and Ridgeway). The longest ski run in the resort is the Ridgeway at 6.4km (nearly 4 miles).
The RCR rail park has progressive features for everyone from beginners to pro’s. Kimberley is home to North America’s longest floodlit ski run (2.5km) and the Nordic loop is also floodlit if you fancy some skiing after hours.
