Spring Events in Vail

If you missed the Burton US Open, don’t worry!  Though there aren’t any pro ski or snowboard events left at the Vail resort, there’s still plenty of happenings to add to your schedule for the spring season.

Pink Vail

There is nothing better than getting together for a good cause, and it’s even more meaningful surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains.  This event is similar to a traditional run or walk to support cancer, and Pink Vail participants register and then ask their friends and family to make a donation on their behalf.  Pink Vail attracts roughly 3,000 people yearly, all decked out in pink attire together on the mountain.  This all day event includes awesome live music and amazing deck parties, but the best part of the whole day is all proceeds benefit the patients at Shaw Cancer Center by funding our Spirit of Survival program. The Spirit of Survival program allows patients the opportunity to receive free services typically not covered by insurance, dramatically impacting a patient’s quality of life.  Join everyone in Vail on Saturday, March 24th for the fundraiser.

Spring Back to Vail

What better way to celebrate the end of another good ski season than a spring concert?  Not to mention it’s FREE!  Head to the Solaris in Vail on March 31st to listen to the popular reggae vibes of SOJA for no charge out of pocket.  Then head to the ski resort again two weekends later for the World Pond Skimming Championships.  Spring Back to Vail will have you smiling from ear to ear after some great turns on the slopes.
