“We love Northstar!”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Of all the ski in/outs I've done over the years...this is my favorite.

This was my fourth time staying at Northstar Mountain Village and they did not disappoint! The units are incredibly spacious, well-maintained and makes for a pretty easy ski-in/out. Every time I've stayed here, I've had a condo overlooking the mountain...the only catch for coming home at the end of the day is a short t-bar ride back up the bunny hill.

The kitchens have almost everything...the only things you might want but not get are a blender and an electric mixer. Outside of that though...they have you very well set up.

The staff here really makes the difference too...they are so welcoming and friendly, and if you need anything, they will do their best to help.

This property is fantastic for a snowboarding weekend with friends, a getaway with family, or even a romantic getaway for two.

Room Tip: Overlooking the ski hill...makes for an easier ski-in/out.

I can't express how wonderful our stay was, we have traveled many different parts of the world and by far this was one of our best stays. Not only was Northstar outstanding, but the whole town of Kimberly there was not unfriendly person in this town. They made our family feel so welcome . To the point we were all saddened to leave. When we say the whole town we mean the whole town member. Everyone one we encounter was Soo helpful and always cheerful. We would recommend this resort and this town. Very family friendly!!!!!! What a great stay my son age 13 said when we were leaving KIMBERLY'S NORTHSTAR YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED. How great is that for a 13 young man to say. 5 stars*******

We had a group of 120 golfers & friends stay, and play at Northstar Mountain Village Resort for our 4th consececutive year. Fantastic resort with all of the amenities for a larger group. Kathy and her group at the Resort did all the work for us to organize 3 world class golf courses (Bootleg Gap, St Eugene Mission, & Trickle Creek), all of the Chalet units for this large group, and she organized for us to use thier kitchen facility, and common room for our group to cook and eat. Can't say enough about how well this resort is maintained, and how nice it is for a group like ours of all ages, singles, couples, etc.
Our group has already secured next year, and we will be more in numbers, and this place can handle groups like ours with ease.
This is a world class facility for something like our event, or like a Wedding, etc for well over 100 guests. And for our group, the price was right.

My family and I stayed at the Northstar Village in Kimberley for a week for some sking and R&R. We stayed in a three bedroom condo complete with your own 4 person outdoor hot tub. The accomodations were awesome and the property is located at the top of the bunny hill so you can ski to and from the property to the base of the Kimberley ski resort. We also stayed here the summer of 2010 and the golfing in the area is world class (easy to get tee times on the week days).
The ski hill is excellent with 5 minute waits for the quad chair on the weekends and no line ups on the weekdays. The snow was good to considering the temperature was definitely above freezing in the afternoons.
We ate half our dinners in our condo which has a complete kitchen (plus a good barbeque on the deck). The other times we went out for dinner at some of the local restaurants. I highly recommend the Biernhaus on Sorenson Drive and the Gausthaus on the downtown platzel. Both are top notch German restaurants. For excellent pizza try Grubstake Pizza.
No complaints. See you next year!!

My family has visited Kimberley during ski season for the past several years and stayed at a number of different resorts and I have to say that Northstar is by far the nicest in Kimberley we've stayed at yet. This year we stayed in a huge 3 bedroom townhouse at the back of the Northstar property across from the clubhouse and found it extremely quiet and convenient for our kids to use the pool. Others have raved about the views from the buildings at the front of the development at the top of the T-bar but I personally loved the forest and ski hill views from the end unit we stayed in and the peace and quiet away from the skiers using the Owl T-bar. The town houses at the back of the development can easily be accessed from the ski hill by taking Midnight to Blacktrack and Backtrack to the snowmobile run leading into the RCR maintenance yard and then skiing or walking for about 2 minutes through the RCR maintenance yard to the back of the development. We used this route the entire time we stayed at Northstar to avoid the icy skier bridge and the long line-ups on the Owl T-Bar. Our favourite restaurant is the Village Bistro and our favorite spa is the Wallinger Day Spa (Joanne is amazing!) We will definitely stay at this resort again.

I first discovered Northstar in its infancy when there were only buildings A & B, and have been back countless times since then. I've been there on my own, with my family, and with friends at all times of year, and it's always a nice relaxing time. The newer townhouses are nice and high quality, but aren't as well designed and lack the superb views of buildings A through G. By far the best places to stay are the loft units, which are enormous and can easily accommodate 10 people. Given that they're 3 levels, have a separate garage and private ski locker, and 2 private balconies (one with hot tub and BBQ) the value of these places is awesome.

Most of the furnishings are local and high quality. The ventilation works great and keeps the entire place comfortable regardless of the season. Everything is well maintained and normally the cleanliness standard is kept very high. Noise from other units has never been a problem, as they're fairly strict about noise at unreasonable hours, and most of the people staying here are families.

Kimberley itself isn't terribly exciting. After all, their big yearly event is an accordion festival, which tells you all that you need to know about Kimberley. That said, it makes a great base for hiking, fishing, golfing, skiing, biking, and pretty much any sort of outdoor pursuit. Plus, at Northstar it's quite comfortable to just laze around and soak in the hot tub while enjoying the view. The ski hill isn't very beginner-friendly, but it's one of my favourite hills (except for its inadequate lifts) in Western Canada with lots of gladed areas, and it's so nice to be able to truly ski-in and ski-out from Northstar.

My only real criticism of the resort itself is that the water pressure in the showers is terrible. Otherwise I can't fault this place, as I thoroughly enjoy staying there and highly recommend it.

Have stayed at Northstar a couple of times during ski season but thought we'd try coming out for a full week in the summertime. So Glad we did. Golfed a round at each of 3 different local golf courses (Trickle Creek, Bootleg Gap, Kimberley GC), drove to nearby Wasa lake Provincial Park (20 mins away) for some beach time and of course, spent a couple of sunny afternoon just hanging around the Northstar Pool working on our tans! We were three adults and two teenagers and were comfortable staying in a two bedroom condo that easily would have slept six.
I love this place just as much in summer as I do in winter. The condo's are air conditioned and the accommodation - from beds to kitchen amenities - is excellent. As per a previous reviewer, the condos located on the front "bench" of the resort, have the best (only) views of the mountains and valley. Building G is the most private, as it is located right on the end. These units are truly ski in- ski out. Anytime we've had issues with our hot tub or internet connection, maintenance people have come over very quickly to resolve the issue and if you run out of any items like toilet paper, kleenex or dishwasher soap, the front desk staff will give you more. We'll definately be coming back again.
