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.
Saturday is traditionally splash pond day, as daring skiers of all ages attempt to ride across the pond at the base of the hill surrounded by a huge and enthusiastic crowd.
Sunday is the annual Dummy Downhill, and garages around town are filled with creative dummies under construction.
Saturday will also feature a free outdoor concert on the Resort Plaza. KAR is pleased to announce that the headliner act this year is Clayton Bellamy and the Congregation. Clayton is the Juno award winning members of the platinum selling super group the Road Hammers, the highest selling Canadian Country band in history. That concert gets underway at 4 p.m. The opening act, beginning at 1 p.m .is New Soul Duo.
