Background Information
At approximately 3:00 am on Saturday, December 18, a fire broke out 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.
