Orono, Ont. – Brimacombe invites members and the general public to Brimfest. Brimfest is an annual celebration and is presented by KX96, The Rock and CKDO. Starting Saturday February 23 to Sunday, February 24, Brimfest will be a two-day celebration of family-fun on and off the slopes. There will be events for all ages as well as deals, contests, food, music and giveaways.

“We always look forward to hosting Brimfest,” says Mark Rutherford, General Manager at Brimacombe. “This annual celebration is our way of commemorating our history with our skiers and snowboarders.”
