A.K.A closing time for the slopes.
This weekend marks the closing for several slopes in the mountains, but don’t frown- the slopes will be retiring in style!
Here’s what’s going on:
Aspen Snowmass:this weekend’s event is the Schneetag (pronounced Sch-knee Tog) on Saturday, April 14. This hilarious event in one not to miss! The 5th annual Schneetag event invites teams of four to create a craft that they will pilot down a slope at Spider Sabich and attempt to skim across a 100-ft pond…attempt. April 14 is also the official closing day at Snowmass. Join us for a celebration including live music by Jes Grew, the Budweiser Beer Garder, Kid’s Zone with a Dunk Tank, Face Painting, Food and more!
Breckenridge:the slopes will stay open for extended days through April, keep in touch to see when the last day will be. This weekend is busy one in Breck! Toots and the Maytals play Saturday, April 14. This well-known ska and reggae act is considered legends in their genre. Their Jamaican sound is a unique, original combination of gospel, ska, soul, reggae and rock.
Also on Saturday is the Beer Festival presented by KSMT. KSMT “The Mountain” presents the 6th annual Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival on Saturday, April 14 at Main Street Station Plaza. This event offers brews, views and free live music, featuring beer sampling from 25 craft brewers and live music from My Pet Dragon, Jason Spooner, and Tracksuit Wedding.
Sunday, April 15 is jammed packed with entertainment from Rusted Root- you’ve all heard their song on the Matilda sound track, “On my way.” Known for their unique fusion of acoustic, rock, world and other styles of music, with a strong percussion section that draws from African, Latin American, Native American and Indian influences will have everyone on their way to the dance floor.
Keystone:the slopes are closed…but don’t worry! There’s still fun going on in Keystone all summer long. Keystone offers biking throughout the summer. You can downhill at Keystone, taking advantage of our lift serviced mountain terrain. Or try cross-country or road biking with countless trails and miles of road outside our door. Bike rentals, helmets and safety equipment are available.
