If you haven’t already visited Colorado’s ski resorts for their spring ski events, please, I’m begging you, do so. Known for great times and great vibes, these events are a fantastic way to end the ski season. Whether it’s watching someone soar across the pond-skim or enjoying the live music and festivities, you’ll create happy ski memories to hold you over until the following season. Below are the top 3 must not miss spring ski events.

1. Spring Back to Vail: April 8 – 10, 2016

If you find yourself near the Vail area, be sure to check out this event. On Friday, April 8th, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood will be headlining at the Solaris Plaza with music starting at 5:30pm. Don’t forget to stop by the Vail Film Festival Virtual Reality tent on Friday for a wild experience. Finally, of course, Sunday, April 10th at 3pm marks the start of the pond-skim.

2. Spring Splash Presented by Monster: April 24, 2016

Spring Pond Skim Vail - OutThere Colorado

This isn’t your average pond-skim. Going on its 48th year, this historic Winter Park tradition involves participants weaving through various obstacles on the Larry Sale trail race course before hurling themselves across the pond-skim at the end. After you’re done watching the pond-skim, stick around for the live music and to party the night away.

3. Spring Fever in Breckenridge: March 18 – April 24, 2016

Breck’s month-long spring ski event to send off the 2015-2016 ski season is an absolute must attend celebration. With 3 different artists coming on 3 different dates (April 9, 16, 17), the party will always be rocking. And if you’re feeling a little adventurous, sign up for The Imperial Challenge. This 6 mile bike ride from Breckenridge Rec Center to the base of Peak 8 and then 2500’ ascent to the T-Bar or 3000’ ascent to the top of Peak 8 will be a nice little warm-up for those triathlons later in the summer.
