Vail Mountain is closing this weekend and the '09-10 season is definitely going out with a bang. Record snow in the last few weeks helps as does the awesome end-of-season bash that is Spring Back to Vail.
Festivities start with the Bud Light Street Beat Concert Finale (FREE) on Wednesday night featuring DJ Logic's Tribute to Michael Jackson. Wear your best Michael Jackson costume for a chance to win a pair of Head Monster skis and bindings. It's also the last chance for locals to register to win a Volvo 2011 C30.
Around town starting Friday, check out the Men's Journal Lounge, Reverb Eco Village and the Sony Experience. Why would you want to go to any of these? Because you'll get free stuff. Free samples, product giveaways and demos plus you can bring your favorite furry friend to the Eukanuba Doggy Bar.
The big draw of Spring Back to Vail is - of course - the FREE concerts featuring national headliners & Pond Skimming. Here's a look at the line up:
Friday, 4/16: Sierra Leone's Refugee All-stars Documentary & Concert
Saturday, 4/17: Wyclef Jean with very special guest Robert Earl Keen
Sunday, 4/18: Rockstar World Pond Skimming Championships & Guster in concert
You can also hit the Bud Light & Captain Morgan apres and post parties each day, make your last turns of the season all week and try to squeeze in the traditional "Four at 4" on Vail Mountain.
In other words, you won't be at a loss for things to do. Neither will we, because you can bet we're not going miss any of this!
