Goats calling it quits with Spring Splash show
It’s can be a sad time of year for those who love plunging downhill on one or two pieces of wood.
The inevitable end of the ski/snowboarding season is fast approaching; despite how much snow may still be in your back yard.
To help curb the blues of the season coming to an end are the year-end parties and fun.
Kimberley Alpine Resort is sticking to tradition April 8/9, by hosting the annual Spring Splash and Dummy Downhill weekend.
On Saturday, April 8, at 5 p.m. in the plaza, the fun gets even louder with Spring Splash headliner act The Cave Singers, an Indie Rock/Indie Folk band from Seattle, Washington.
The Cave Singers are composed of former members of Pretty Girls Make Graves after its disbandment in 2007. Cave Singers, have released five albums since its formation in 2007.They bring in a vast assembly of instruments including the occasional jazz flute in front of two guitars, a drummer and a bassist. Their songs are all brought together by raspy, howling vocals of lead singer Pete Quirk.
