Your Guide to Spring Break in Vail

The annual spring bash ~ Celebrating the close of winter season

The Event

A Spring Ski Bash ~ Of Epic Proportions

Usher the winter out and leave your inhibitions behind, and come celebrate the warmer temperatures at Spring Back to Vail. Now in its thirteenth year, Spring Back to Vail 2017 takes place from April 14th-16th, and always delivers optimal skiing conditions, delicious food, and a series of fun (and oftentimes downright zany) events throughout the course of the weekend. While the concert and apres party details are still being secured, so far, here’s what we’re certain you can expect:

Spring Back to Vail “Triple R Rewards”

The best deals ~ From local businesses

Throughout the length of the entire weekend, various Vail and Lionshead businesses will be offering special “Triple R Rewards.” Just what are the three Rs you ask? It stands for Restaurant, Retail and Relaxation. Enjoy discounts and promotions from participating local business by spotting the “Triple R Rewards” sticker in their window. And then save, accordingly.

Tikis and Tunes Luau

An authentic Hawaiian celebration ~ Done Vail style

On Saturday, April 15th, from 12-3pm, you’ll want to head to Sarge’s at Mid-Vail on the Terrace level. Everyone else will be. That’s because this is an annual event that features a giant pig roast, great live music, drink specials and a plethora of games and giveaways that will keep you in the perfect mood.

Bud Light Bags Tournament

A friendly competition ~ To become king of the mountain

Perhaps you prefer to keep those competitive juices flowing, in which case, you’ll want to slide over to the Bud Light Bags Tournament - also in Mid-Vail. The friendly cornhole competition begins on Saturday, April 15th, from 12-3pm. If you’re lucky enough to advance, the finals will then be held on Sunday, April 16 at Golden Peak (time TBD). Pick your partner wisely.

Free Concert

Jam out to some live tunes ~ That are always in season

The announcement of the headliner is coming soon, but as last year proved with The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, it’s sure to be a rockin’ good time. The concert takes place in Vail Village on Saturday, April 15th, and is likely to begin in the early evening. Air guitars welcome.

World Pond Skimming Championships

Don your craziest costume ~ And compete or cheer for soluble glory

The weekend’s de facto main event, the World Pond Skimming Championships are held at Golden Peak on Sunday, April 16 at 3pm. But you’ll want to get there at 1pm when the venue opens so you can adequately fuel up on some BBQ before you cheer on the competitors trying to fly across the “pond” without getting wet. Should you be so inclined to participate, registration opens March 15th. Just remember, there is a long list of rules you must strictly follow, but the rewards of becoming this year’s “Golden Skimmer” are certainly immeasurable.

Expo Village

Discounts and promotions ~ All weekend long

The vendor Expo Village will be following you around for most of the Spring Back to Vail weekend. Find it at Gondola One in Mountain Plaza on Friday and Saturday, from 9am-4pm. Then on Sunday, it moves to Golden Peak from 12-4pm. Be sure to be on the lookout for all those “Triple R Rewards” stickers!
