Spring Events in Vail

The sun is shining over Vail these days, and what a time it is to hit the slopes for some spring skiing fun! With the days spent carving the sun-splashed slopes, late afternoons and evenings are left free to explore what Vail has to offer. To make it easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of the main events happening this spring that aren’t to be missed!

Taste of Vail

Explore Vail through the ever-evolving cuisine and beverages that it has to offer. From March 30 – April 3, over thirty of Vail’s top chefs and restaurateurs come together to provide you with a memorable gastronomic experience you will be hard-pressed to forget. In addition, nearly fifty of the US’s top wineries flock to this beautiful mountain town to showcase their finest wines to the public!  Your taste buds will delight over the succulent, delicious, smooth, robust, and unique flavours that will be showcased throughout this event. This event is created to promote the amazing resort’s cuisine and its exquisite lifestyle.

Over a dozen events are to take place throughout this food festival, including a Grand Tasting and Auction, a Celebrity Chef Tour, and a Lamb Cook-Off and Après Ski Tasting. This is an experience you can’t miss this year.

Pink Vail

Unfortunately, almost everyone’s life  has been touched  in some way by cancer. We’ve seen all sorts of ingenious ways people show support: dressing in colours, growing facial hair, running marathons, and so much more.

Well, on April 2 in Vail this year, Pink Vail will take over the town as the world’s biggest ski day to take on cancer. A family event, Pink Vail is accessible to everyone, and you don’t have to ski to participate. Complete with a costume contest, live music, awards, and après, Pink Vail has taken over the town since 2012, and all the proceeds go to Shaw Regional Cancer Center, a local nonprofit organization. To contribute, you can register as an individual or a team in order to fundraise for this cause. How can you say no to such a great pairing: skiing and supporting cancer patients and survivors? Beautiful event, not to be missed!

Spring Back to Vail

There’s nothing like a close of season festival quite like Vail’s Spring Back to Vail!

From April 8 – 10 the town celebrates the joy of spring, featuring stellar spring skiing with a slew of events. For instance, the Vail Film Festival Virtual Reality tent will be showcasing incredible screenings all weekend such as Cirque du Soleil, Safaris, and News Stories. Another incredible event is the World Pond Skimming Championships.

On April 10 at Golden Peak, come on out to see contestants try their ski skills on water. An enjoyable and hilarious event, pond skimming is not to be missed. Expo Village will be sponsoring the weekend’s events, and will be filled with live music, giveaways, and great après. Spring Back to Vail will keep you dashing from event to event all weekend long!
