Splash down at Kimberley Alpine Resort

Splash pond on Saturday; Dummy Downhill on Sunday part of Spring Splash activities

Have a splashing good time at Kimberley Alpine Resort this weekend.

It’s the best of times and the worst of times. The best of times because there is nothing more fun than the Spring Splash weekend at Kimberley Alpine Resort; and the worst of times because it means skiing is over for another year — except for those hardy souls who continue to hike the hill until there is no more snow.

In any event, it is time for Kimberley Alpine Resort’s biggest party. It will follow the same schedule as every year, the splash pond on Saturday, the Dummy Downhill on Sunday; live music, big crowds and fun, fun, fun. And new this year, the Resort is offering heli-sightseeing flights. Five seats are available per flight, at $139.95 plus tax per person. That gives you a 15 minute flight over KAR and Kimberley.

Spring Splash gets started on Saturday at 11 a.m. in the plaza with a barbecue and beer gardens, photo booth, plaza games, free facepainting and more, although if you want to register for the splash pond, registration opens at 9 a.m.

Live music with Mile High Club begins at noon and Spring Splash events, including the splash pond, begin at 2:15 p.m. Awards will be presented at 4:45 p.m. At 5 p.m. there’s more live music  with Jory Kinjo and the Static and then at 7 p.m Oak Republic plays at the Stemwinder.

On Sunday, April 3, registration for the Dummy Downhill begins at 9 a.m. The barbecue and beer gardens open at 11 a.m. Live music begins with Lucas Hanny and The Fable Hoppers. The Dummy Downhill begins at 3 p.m. with awards at 4 p.m.

The Good Ol’ Goats perform at 4:30 p.m.

The Resort is reporting spring skiing conditions with great coverage, so come on up and take a few final runs and watch, or take part in, all the Spring Splash festivities.
