Spring Back to Vail

April 11 - 14, 2019

Vail, CO

Spring Back to Vail brings spring in the mountains to life with free concerts at Ford Park. The Spring tradition continues with the World Pond Skimming Championship. Costumes and skimming across icy water holds strong as participants will ski themselves off a snow jump in the hopes of coming out on the other side in style. The top male and female in the contest will each be awarded the grand prize of a 2019-2020 Vail Resorts Epic Pass and other prizes. The spectacle defies the laws of physics and common sense as a panel of highly-skilled judges scores each competitor on distance, style, creativity and water resistance. The contest gets underway at 3:00 p.m. and the Golden Peak venue opens at 12:00 p.m. for sponsor expos and giveaways.
