Each week, I take a look at events and happenings in The Valley and choose three things that look adventurous from Aspen down to Glenwood Springs. Here are my picks of the week: Surf and Snow Beach Party in Snowmass, the Annual Carbondale Easter Egg Hunt, and bonus week of skiing in Aspen.
ELK CAMP SURF & SNOW BEACH PARTY
Saturday, April 15 @ 11:30 am – 3:30 pm
Head up to Elk Camp for some fun in the sun! The party begins at 11:30 am with DJ Naka G who will be providing jammin tunes for the day. Free leis will be given to those brave souls in swim attire (Whit), volleyball, drink specials, taco bar, margarita bike blenders, and plenty of raffles and giveaways. Wear your swim attire for a chance at a North American Record attempt for largest swimsuit ski parade at 3:30 pm. Join fellow skier/riders from Elk Camp to Base Village at where the party continues!
Don’t ski? You can purchase a sightseeing ticket and still join the party!
Annual Easter Egg Hunt @ Sopris Park
Saturday, April 15 @ 10:00 am sharp
Join Carbondale Recreation for its Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Sopris Park. They need help finding the 6,000 eggs hidden in the park! The Hunt will begin at 10 am promptly. I would encourage you to arrive early lease because the hunt only lasts a few minutes. Be sure to bring your own basket to collect the eggs! Participants will be divided up according to age. Registration for the Easter Basket Raffle will begin at 9:30am, and winners will be drawn following. This event is FREE.
Bonus Week of Skiing @Aspen Mountain
Through April, 23, 2017
Aspen Mountain just extended the skiing until April, 23, 2017! So this is your last chance to get out on the mountain until next season (unless they do a surprise summer ski day)! Per Skico, lifts will run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily starting April 17, with the opportunity for even earlier openings on powder days. The Sundeck will be open for grilling, après and live music.Here are the details!
