Vast terrains, substantial snowfall and an organized, local club means that Kimberley is a great place for Nordic and cross-country skiing.
In 1967 work began on the Centennial Trail, and Kimberley now boasts an extensive number of easily accessed trails located close to town centre. Its high elevation and nearly 500cm/200in snowfall in the winter time contributes to an active cross-country ski culture.
Kimberley Nordic Club
The Kimberley Nordic Club maintains an impressive 235ha/600ac of skiable terrain with 33km/20mi of machine groomed double tracked trails. The ski terrain varies in degrees of difficulty and is suitable for all levels.
A 3.3 km/2 mi long loop is well-lit for night skiing, every night throughout the season. Impressive views of Kimberley (even during the night) means that visitors should stop along the routes for a peek.
