It’s a bittersweet time. As the days grow longer and warmer, the snow slowly melts away, and another ski season ends. But, there’s still time for one last hurrah.
This weekend, several of Colorado’s ski resorts will close for the season: Vail, Copper Mountain and Winter Park. And how will Winter Park mark the occasion? With live music and pond skimming, of course.
Spring Back to Vail, the Colorado’s resort’s annual spring shindig, runs April 12-18. Along with the World Pond Skimming Championships held at Golden Peak on Vail Mountain, the event will feature several live concerts by high-profile artists.
On Friday, April 16, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars will perform at Solaris at Vail Village. The subject of a 2005 documentary, The All Stars formed in a refugee camp in Guinea after fleeing war-torn Sierra Leone (see clip below).
