Vail visitors enjoy watching the ski slopes from the many outdoor patios.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Vail is ending the ski season with the biggest bash—Spring Back to Vail. Held April 8 through 14, this week features free live concerts, the legendary World Pond Skimming Championships and more.

On Friday, April 12, Billboard chart-topper O.A.R. will perform live at Ford Park, and Saturday’s concert showcases Sublime with Rome. Solaris Plaza plays host to Jimmy Cliff—with his reggae style—on Sunday, Vail Mountain’s closing day.
