Spring Back to Vail is the biggest end-of-season bash in the Rocky Mountains! We're ending the season in style with some serious fun under the sun, including free live concerts, the infamous World Pond Skimming Championships, Bud Light après after-dark parties, base area giveaways, and so much more!
Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, STS9 and Steel Pulse will headline the Spring Back to Vail concert series, wrapping up the 2013-2014 ski and snowboard season. All concerts are free and open to the public as part of Spring Back to Vail.
A limited number of Spring Back to Vail Private Reserve passes are available for the concert at Ford Park in Vail, Colo., on Saturday, April 12. The Private Reserve area includes preferred viewing, private venue entrance, complimentary food and beverage (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and a rocking party. Non-transferable Private Reserve Passes are available for $100.00 per concert. Private Reserve passes are available for purchase by clicking here.
The closing day tradition of donning costumes and skimming across icy water holds strong as participants will careen themselves off a snow jump in the hopes of coming out on the other side in the 12th annual World Pond Skimming Championships. The spectacle defies the laws of physics and common sense as a panel of highly-skilled judges scores each competitor on distance, style, creativity and water resistance. Registration is now open. Register online here.
Adding to Spring Back festivities will be the Great Race 2.0, presented by Red Bull. The event will challenge 35 teams of two people through an on-mountain obstacle course. Winners will be determined by overall time and their performance on the course. Registration is just $20 per team and is available on Saturday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Mountain Plaza; and on Sunday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to noon in Mountain Plaza and noon to 1 p.m. in Golden Peak. The contest will be held at Golden Peak from 1pm-3pm.
Spring Back to Vail is presented by Vail Mountain, Pepsi, Bud Light, Sprint, Helly Hansen, GoPro, SmartWool, and Town of Vail and brought to you in part by Liberty Skis, Gatorade and Colorado Mountain Express.
