Top Station of Kimberley Alpine Resorts Chairlift Catches Fire

By

Kimberley Alpine Resorts season is off to a rocky start. After opening for the season on December 17th, their major chairlift out of the main base area is shut down indefinitely. Early Saturday morning, there was a major fire reported at the top terminal of the Northstar Express Quad. An active investigation is underway, and luckily no injuries or deaths occurred. The British Columbian mountain was closed on Saturday but has since reopened. The Northstar Express Quad has remained closed, which results in lift-serviced access to Tamarack and Easter Chairs being cut off. These lifts are still open though but require a twenty to forty-minute hike up. The following measures have also been taken to counter this inconvenience:

“- Offering a ski/snowboard delivery service by snowmobile up the Ridgeway Road for those who choose to walk to the backside
– Adding night lights to the Owl T-bar so that the long tradition of night skiing in Kimberley can continue
– Looking for an alternative location for the rail park, possibly in the base area
– Getting the Easter top BBQ going again
– And providing the Kootenay Haus to give guests access to a warm building without having to come back to the base area
– Plus events and activities in the base including the skating rink to create family fun”
