Kimberley is a pretty small town (or at least, it was last time I was there). Cranbrook is the major town, and the Kimberley residents I know drive into Cranbrook for shopping, etc.

Enterprise advertises that they will pick you up, so if they have an office in Cranbrook, they may drive out to Kimberley to get you. Worth a try!

The airport, which is about half way between Kimberley and Cranbrook, has car rentals.

The skiing should be really good - an excellent resort for beginners.

Budget Rent A Car - operates the largest rental fleet in the area. Main location is in Cranbrook with second at the Airport. Airport is 15 minutees from Kimberley; Cranbrook is 25 minutes. ph 250 489 4371

National/Enterprise also in Cranbrook or at Airport locations 1 800 227 7368 or 1 800 736 8222

Kimberley is "best" family hill going. Small line ups; great mix of terrain; five lifts = have you been to; www.skikimberley.com

also check out utube for many videos - this one is a charmer = "Powdeer Day Kimberley, B.C." search it and enjoy!

Also check out the Hot Springs link at www.kootenayrockies.com - this site is loaded with info on the area.

Next time fly direct from Vancouver, Calgary, or Salt Lake city.
