Spring Back to Vail

It’s that time of year again. Springtime at Vail Mountain is soon upon us. Along with the bluebird days, warm temperatures, spectacular spring skiing and snowboarding, comes the biggest end-of-season bash in the Rocky Mountains, Spring Back to Vail, April 8-10. The season will end in style with some not-so-serious fun under the sun, including a free live concert, the infamous World Pond Skimming Championships, après after-dark parties, base area giveaways, and much more.
