Spring Back to Vail

April 7-12 and April 20, 2014

Event Overview:

Vail's huge end-of-the-season bash with free concerts from national headliners, on-snow events, street parties. And don't miss the World Pond Skimming Championships on closing day!

April 11: Karl Denson's Tiny Universe with Dirty Dozen Brass Band at Solaris
April 12: STS9 with The Polish Ambassador at Ford Park
April 20: World Pond Skimming Championships & Free Outdoor Concert: Steel Pulse with Bonfire Dub at Solaris

The legendary World Pond Skimming Championships returns to Lake Golden Peak at Vail Mountain’s Golden Peak base area on April 20, 2014. The venue will open at 1:30 p.m. with expos and giveaways from event sponsors, and the competition will get going at 3:00 p.m.

The annual competition entails floatable (and sometimes sinkable) athletes launching themselves off an on-snow jump onto an icy pond in attempt to successfully exit the pond on both feet. Competitors will vie for both fame and glory in a showing that defies the laws of physics – and perhaps even common sense.

This year, two Champions will be crowned – the top male and top female competitor – who will each take home an Epic Pass for the 2014-2015 season.
