Spring Back to Vail

February 24, 2018
Listen Now!

The temperatures are cold and it has been snowing on and off in Vail for a week but it is the end of February and there is no denying that spring is coming. Spring Back to Vail -- the ultimate celebration of the ski season ending, is scheduled to return to Vail for two weekends of endless fun this year. The first weekend will kick off on Saturday, March 31 with a live concert at Solaris presented by Bud Light. The World Pond Skimming Championships will commence on Sunday, April 15 for the second weekend of celebration with on-mountain and après events as well.

Spring Back to Vail will kick off with a free concert at Solaris presented by Bud Light on Saturday, March 31 with headliner SOJA and opening act, Houndmouth, The venue will open at 5:30 p.m. with music starting at 6 p.m. 

SOJA, a D.C. area based band, blends reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, Latin, rock and hip-hop. Originally formed by a group of friends while still in middle school and has built a massive, dedicated fanbase around the world since. For SOJA, whose live show is an explosion of energy and positivity, music is a means of helping people relate in a more affirmative way. It also asks people to look inside themselves and really ask what it is they want to do with their life and how they can be happy.

The 16th Annual World Pond Skimming Championships and The Bud Light Bags Tournament will draw Spring Back to Vail and the 2017-2018 winter season to a close on Sunday, April 15. The top male and female in the contest will each be awarded the grand prize of a 2018-2019 Epic Pass. Food and drink specials along with an Expo Village will start at 12 p.m. The Pond Skim contest gets underway at 3:00 p.m. Registration is required to pond skim and will be available starting March 15 at vail.com/springback.
