Staff at the Kimberley Alpine Resort are preparing for the year's busiest period — the holiday week from Christmas to New Year's.

Ivy O'Reilly, who takes care of marketing for the resort, says that right now Trickle Creek Lodge is at full occupancy for the week and all the other accommodators are likely just as busy, as out of town guests pour in for the Christmas holidays.

"Coming up from December 20 to January 5 is our fabulous holiday schedule," O'Reilly said. "We have a brand new program starting called Kidz Korner every day at the Trickle Creek Lodge. We have fun family events including treasure hunts, breakfast with Santa and more. We have a great line-up of bands at the Stemwinder with the Good ol' Goats here December 28 and 29, and great specials at Montana's. Finally, our Telus Ski School will be hosting a great number of events starting with Ladies Night, multi-programs, race nights, Jib sessions and more."

Family-themed events include a treasure hunt, family slalom, family skate and more.

Night skiing begins on December 26 and a New Year's Eve party is planned at the Stemwinder.
