    Local young film maker and friends' most recent installment. Anything lacking in skills, made up for by courage!:

    That was awesome

    So many memories, the stairs from town towards townsite, the ice rink, I even thought I saw the town funny man Lincoln in the last few frames. Thanks for posting.

    Lincoln is a legend! Quite the Kimberley character to say the least, still walks up and down from Townsite pretty much every day, how I don't know - many able bodied folks around here can't do that.

    Lincoln is a legend. He kept me company in calgary airport for a couple of hours waiting for the plane to cranbrook late at night.

    The next day the first person I see in town is Lincoln [​IMG]

    Lots of other legends too, the old taxi driver...the list goes on. Such a cool, real town is Kimberley.

    Yes indeed yesterday looked the goods, I saw some pics on facebook from a friend staying there at the moment, looks like a good season for the Kootenays.

    I can't wait to get back Old Hack. I plan to bring my son there to learn to ski - its a great place to bring up kids.

    Be sure to drop into these forums every now and again and keep us up to date. I love hearing about Kimberley.

    Definitely a great hill for the kids to learn on, or anyone for that matter. Lots of goods for those who aren't learning either! My 8 yr old does lessons every Saturday through with the ski school, and will be out skiing me before too much longer.

    What a week! Keep forgetting how big March can be. A little wet downtown, but not on the hill. Still snowing today and more expected through the weekend. Life is good, if you love winter that is....
