March 18, 2024  By P&PC Staff

Paper Excellence’s Skookumchuck mill donated $5,000 to support the Kimberley Alpine Team. With numerous employees’ children actively involved in the team, the company says that it takes pride in sponsoring an organization that positively impacts its employees and enriches the broader community.

“It’s a pleasure to support such a wonderful group of individuals through our mill,” said Anicka Tardiff, a member of the Skookumchuck community engagement team. “The Kimberly Alpine Team plays a vital role in teaching skiing to children in the Kimberely area and organizing competitions that benefit our community.”

Paper Excellence says that its donation aims to ensure the sustainability of this organization, allowing it to continue the valuable work for future generations and keeping youth active. The Kimberly Alpine Team also contributes to the local economy by attracting tourists to ski events. As spectators travel to watch the winter competitions, they also explore the diverse offerings in Kimberley, thus stimulating growth and prosperity within the community.


The Kimberley Alpine Team (KAT) is a not-for-profit organization managed by volunteers and parents. They aim to develop ski racers and all-mountain skiers from the ages of 4 to 16+. Formerly known as the Kimberley North Star Racers Society, KAT provides fall and winter programs which offer fun and challenging opportunities for personal excellence through participation and competition in alpine ski racing and all mountain skiing. Dedicated to helping young skiers learn the essentials of skiing and ski racing, their coaches implement ski programs at the Kimberley Alpine Resort.
