Spring is the big events season for Snowmass and it’s not over yet. It seems like every year, more fantastic, family-friendly events are added to the roster. While many of the events have passed, there are still a few amazing ones left. Aspen has its own list of things happening, but since we’re just a quick walk away from the Base Village and the Mall, we’ll stick to Snowmass. Here are a few events we are looking forward to this April in Snowmass.
Anderson Ranch Spring Open House
April 9th, 4:30 pm – 7 pm
The world-renowned Anderson Ranch Arts Center opens its doors to the community to showcase the work of their artists-in-residence. These artists have been hard at work throughout the spring season, working on projects spanning every medium in the art world. This is a chance for the community to see their work and tour the amazing facility. Dinner will be served in the cafe for $20/person. If you have never heard of the Anderson Ranch, you can learn more right here. For more info on the event, click here.
2019 Red Bull Homerun
April 13, 9 am – 5 pm
Leave it to Redbull to put on another thrilling event in our little town. The Homerun speaks for itself – Start at the line, sprint to your skis or board, and race down the mountain to the finish line, celebrate at Elk Camp after. The fastest male and female skiers and snowboarders will receive a free Ikon Pass, Trophy, Red Bull Prize Pack, and of course, Bragging Rights to the fastest rider on the mountain. The celebration afterwords is being called the best after-ski party of the year, although there are plenty of events who are contending for that title! Learn more about the event right here.
Spring Fling Closing Weekend
The annual Elk Camp Surf and Snow Beach Party is back again and has more activities for all ages than ever before. This year, the first day of celebrations will be held at the Elk Camp restaurant, and even if you or the kids don’t ski, gondola tickets are available for pedestrians. There will be free leis, bike powered margaritas, some dancing and for the first year ever, a pond skim to attempt.
The 21st will be more of the same celebrations, most taking place at the Base Village. In past years, the base has been turned into a beach in the Rocky Mountains, complete with sand and spring in the air. Hawaiian and tropical attire is encouraged. You’re sure to see a fair share of wild and hilarious outfits throughout the weekend. Learn more about the happenings for Snowmass Closing Weekend here.
