Bring on the Splash at Kimberley Alpine Resort

Annual closing weekend part at KAR April 6 and 7

The weather has turned and the last weekend of the ski season is fast approaching.

The annual Spring Splash celebration at Kimberley Alpine Resort is scheduled for the weekend of April 6 and 7, 2019.

As anyone who has attended the Splash in the past can attest, it’s the best fun to be had on skis or off.
