1. Vail, Colorado
When: April 11-14, 2019
Many closin-day parties involve a pond skimming competition—the sport of attempting to ski across a tiny pool of water whilst wearing your craziest costume, all to mark the arrival of spring. But Vail’s Spring Back festivities close out with the best of the best at the 17th-annual World Pond Skimming Championships. The rest of the weekend you can log runs by day and free concerts by both major and local bands at night, not to mention score discounts at many stores and restaurants in the village. Stay an extra week and sneak in a few more runs—Vail’s actual closing day is April 23.
