Annual Event Offers a Celebration of Springtime in Vail

 

Vail, Co—February 14, 2011--Visitors to Vail Cascade Resort will enjoy the property’s second annual “SpringFest,” from March 7 through April 24.  The resort is offering a “spring-break-palooza” with entertainment options that include live music, face painting, s’mores by the fire and spa specials.  Most of the activities are free and people not staying at the hotel can use the Vail Cascade free shuttle from Lionshead and Vail Village to access the festivities.  Hotel guests and day visitors to Vail Cascade can use the convenience of the on-property Vail Mountain chairlift; the location of the hotel offers the option of either skiing back to the property or downloading the chairlift at the end of the day.  Après ski parties will feature live music and food and drink specials at the Fireside Bar, the Tavern and Atwater on Gore Creek, with seating available on the Creekside deck, weather permitting.
For younger SpringFest participants, the new schedule of KidVenture activities includes arts and crafts, indoor tennis lessons and a fitness-focused “boot camp” for kids to put their energy towards.  While the kids are enjoying their special events, adults can take advantage of spa specials such as massages for $114.
All ages will enjoy one of the highlights of the Vail Cascade SpringFest promotion:  a return performance by the legendary “Vail Precision Lawn Chair Drill Team,” a lighthearted spectacle of men who march in formation with lawn chairs for laughs (and beer) according to the group’s website.  Last year, the crowd that witnessed the drill team’s performance were treated to new and brought-out-of retirement members performing the signature moves that were once featured during the team’s visit to President Bush’s White House inauguration in 2001.  All ages are invited to enjoy the return of the VPLCDT at Vail Cascade Resort on March 7, at approximately 5:30 p.m.
Springtime in Vail also includes popular public events such as Spring Back to Vail, with free concerts by national music acts and the official World Pond Skimming Championships.  The Taste of Vail, a three day gourmet food festival, returns for it’s 21st year, promising attendees a chance to “taste the Vail lifestyle.”  The Grand Tasting of the Taste of Vail will be hosted by Vail Cascade Resort, and tickets can be purchased online through the event’s website at www.tasteofvail.com.  Other highlights include the Vail Film Festival and a celebration of the latest Vail ski area closing date in the resort’s history, April 24. 
Brett Schoenfield, General Manager of the Vail Cascade Resort concludes, “Our goal for SpringFest at Vail Cascade is to offer a light-hearted welcome to spring.  Last year’s success solidified that we plan on continuing this annual event as a ‘can’t miss’ party.”
