About The Owner
There are actually 5 of us that own this property. We all worked together many years ago and have remained friends for almost 20 years! Over that time we've had lots of adventures together - we've gone on countless cycling, hiking, back-packing and ski trips around the Rockies, we've cruised through the Caribbean and the Panama Canal, trekked through Peru, and toured around Costa Rica. Every year we all get together for a ski holiday at our condo in Kimberley, and any number of us go out for a fun-filled get away at other times of the year. We are like one big extended family and the memories we have of the adventures we've enjoyed in Kimberley are priceless!
Why The Owner chose Kimberley
We spent many years travelling between Calgary and the Kootenays, skiing at Kimberley, Fernie, Panorama, Whitefish (in Montana, USA) and the many other ski hills in the area. We finally decided to purchase a condo in Kimberley because it was the most central to all these locations. We've since spent a number of great ski holidays in our condo. And much to our delight, we found Kimberley to be a wonderful place to visit in the summer and fall as well! With the biking, hiking, golf courses and mild temperatures into late fall, we've been able to enjoy our condo year round!
What makes this condo unique
We love going out to Kimberley for a relaxing yet adventurous holiday. Instead of getting up early every day and making a long drive to a ski hill, we have the luxury of sleeping in and enjoying a nice breakfast. On a really good day, there is lots of fresh snow from the previous night, and we watch a gentle snowfall while having our morning coffee in the secluded outdoor hot tub on the back patio. Then we stroll over to the ski hill and hit the slopes for a great day of down-hill skiing or snowboarding. Because it’s so close to the ski hill, we often come back to the condo for lunch, pop a lasagna in the stove for supper, and then head back to the hill for the afternoon. By the end of the day, everyone is starving so it’s great to have supper ready when we arrive back at the condo. On a warm night we’ll then go for a walk around the neighborhood. If there’s a full moon we often make the 5 minute drive up to the cross-country ski trails. The main loop is lit at night, but with a full moon we go off on other trails and it’s so quiet and peaceful in the moonlight, with the snow blanketing the ground and no one else around. Much to our surprise, Kimberley turned out to be a wonderful place to stay in the summer and fall, too! There are so many hidden treasures in the area – the Nature Park, St Mary’s Falls, the Cominco Gardens, the Summer Theatre. There are many nearby towns to visit, each with their own attractions, museums, gardens, antique stores, golf courses, etc. On my last trip there we explored around Wasa Lake, the warmest swimming lake in the Kootenays, and spent a lovely day exploring the trails there. I can't wait to go back to explore a new area next time!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the use of your condo in Kimberley. We stayed from Dec 26 to Jan 1 and had a great time. Your condo is a great location and is very well equipped with all the amenities we needed to have a comfortable stay. We cooked most meals so we appreciated the well maintained kitchen. Our girls loved the hot tub and it was a real blessing after skiing all day. We had fantastic weather and enjoyed 3 days of skiing and 3 days of relaxing. My girls also appreciated the BluRay player as they spent many hours watching movies. Also we were very happy with how clean it was - your cleaning staff does a great job
