Kimberley RCMP along with Kimberley Alpine Resort (KAR) and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR) are seeking public assistance in identifying the individual(s) responsible for damaging the Northstar Quad Chair.

KAR & RCR said in a media release Friday, that a $100,000 reward is being offered to any individual(s) with information that leads to the location, arrest and conviction of suspects involved in the destruction of the lift control building on December 18th, 2021.

The information must be provided directly to the RCMP, not to KAR/RCR.  The RCMP number in Kimberley is 250-427-4811.

The reward is a result of a fire that broke out at approximately 3 a.m. on Saturday, December 18, 2021, that destroyed the lift control building adjacent to the upper terminal of the North Star Express lift, the main ski lift on the front side of the Kimberley Alpine Resort.

The RCMP and the Kimberley Fire Department responded immediately to the fire and have been actively investigating it since then.

On January 10th the RCMP released a statement saying that they believe the fire was arson and was deliberately set. KAR/RCR appreciates the RCMP’s efforts in this investigation and are assisting and supporting them in any way we can, including offering this $100,000 reward.

KAR/RCR has been communicating with the RCMP about offering the reward since the day the fire was determined to be arson.
