Mountain Spirit Resort is predicting a boost in vacation property investment in Kimberly. Buyers interested in British Columbia vacation homes can now rely on new scheduled air service to the Canadian Rockies International Airport, launching on June 15.

Integra Air is launching direct non-stop air service between the Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC) and the Edmonton International Airport (YEG). The inaugural flight will be on June 15, 2011. Initially the service will run on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Prices will range from $189 to $239 plus applicable taxes for a one-way flight.

“These new flights will make an amazing getaway to Mountain Spirit Resort in Kimberley much easier for vacation home buyers in Edmonton and Fort McMurray. Edmontonians are already the second largest tourism market for Kimberley, and we think this will result in even more interest from the region if they don’t have to worry about long drive times or limited flight availability,” Allyson Blake, director of real estate marketing at Mountain Spirit says. “They will soon be only a couple hours away from a four-season mountain destination that offers incredible skiing, golf, hiking and mountain biking, along with world-class fly fishing.”

As demand for the service grows, the company plans to move from the introductory 16 seat aircraft to a 32 passenger aircraft and add non-stop flights to Fort McMurray.

Buyers at Mountain Spirit are able to immediately enjoy the recreational opportunities in Kimberley with either 10 years of free golf at Bootleg Gap golf course, or one year of unlimited golf at Trickle Creek golf course and a season’s pass to Kimberley Alpine Resort.

Mountain Spirit Resort is located 20 minutes from the Canadian Rockies International Airport and offers an ideal location to enjoy the four-season lifestyle available in Kimberley. Mountain Spirit Resort boasts a true ski-in ski-out location at the base of Kimberley Alpine Resort and is a short walk from Trickle Creek golf course, one of Kimberley’s top three golf courses. In addition to excellent skiing and golfing, Kimberley also offers world class fly fishing, hundreds of trails to hike or bike and white water rafting.

“We purchased at Mountain Spirit for its quality construction, boutique size and the general community feeling of Mountain Spirit and Kimberley,” says Lisa Torry, a homeowner from Calgary, Alta. “It continues to meet all our expectations and a great lifestyle choice with four children from tweens to teens.”

For those who also enjoy other destinations such as Costa Rica, Hawaii or Mexico, homeowners at Mountain Spirit Resort also benefit from a complimentary two-year membership in the exclusive international homeowner exchange program, Resort to Resort. This means owners are able to enjoy beach, golf and ski resorts for as little as $39 per night. (This is not a timeshare).

Mountain Spirit Resort is now open and already 50 per cent sold out. Fully furnished suites are available at the vacation property in Kimberly from $298,900 to $950,000. Mountain Spirit Resort has already been top rated on by its guests and nominated for the Best Interior Design and Best Green Initiative by the Perspective Magazine Awards.
