Ski Canada announced the winners of its Best of Skiing Awards and Kimberley Alpine Resort is honoured with the magazine’s “Best Sin on a Fork” award.

“The delectably rich Chocolate Fondue & Snowshoe Tour at Kimberley blends a health-giving ride up to the mountaintop and a gentle half-hour guided snowshoe tour with the full-fat loveliness of your own fragrant vat of melted chocolate inside the Kootenay House log cabin,” writes Ski Canada.

Snowshoeing is recognized as one of the fastest growing winter sports in Canada and Kimberley is the perfect place to try it. There is an excellent variety of trails for beginners to seasoned snowshoers.
