Recreational Cross Country Skiing was conducted in Kimberley for several decades on the mining exploration trails at the base of North Star Mountain before the initial nordic trail (Centennial) was constructed. Over the years the trail system was expanded such that now the Kimberley Nordic Club trail network is a first class facility consisting of a variety of snowcat groomed trails complete with primary trails that allow skate and classic skiing. There are also narrower single track trails ideal for classic skiers who are looking for more solitude. These trails are of varying degrees of difficulty and length to accommodate all levels of nordic skiers. The modern facility includes a comfortable 1,200 sq ft lodge with washrooms, a racer's warming/waxing hut, 30 km of groomed dbl track trails, a 3.3 kilometre lit loop for night skiing, a 1.0 km lit sprint loop and 6.5 km of single track trails. The facility also has some trails specifically constructed to be Paralympic skiing friendly.
In February 2021, Cross Country BC launched a survey of skiers in BC. There were 281 responses specific to Kimberley. View summary here >>>
