April 2-15 is Spring Back to Vail, rated the No. 1 ski party in North America by Skiing Magazine.
The generally raucous soiree includes free live music featuring a free concert reggae bad Third World on April 7. The World Pond Skimming Championship stakes place at the base of Golden Peak from 2-5 p.m. on April 14; skimmers are judged on their ability to cross the churning pond of ice cold water as well as their costume creativity. Kid Rock tops off the whole thing April 14 with a non-free concert. www.springbacktovail.com
P.S. I think his hand gesture relates to pond skimming. It means "keep your tips up, bro."
