From November to April 2013, Vail’s anniversary celebrations will be of epic proportion—to match the epic skiing the mountain offers. Starting the ski season with a “First Tracks” event, the official naming of the 2013 U.S. Alpine Ski Team was held on November 15 with many favorite ski racers in attendance.
On Opening Day, November 16, the new, state-of-the-art gondola was dedicated, providing its passengers with a swift, 7.5 minute ride from the base of Vail Village to Mid-Vail.
A favorite annual event, Snow Daze, returns December 10-16 and showcases musical guests, such as Wilco, The Shins and Michael Franti & Spearhead. During Snow Daze on December 15, the official 50th birthday celebration of Vail will take place—a free, outdoor party open to the public.
