PREVIEW: Vail Snow Daze (The Shins, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Wilco)

(Words by Zach Schwartz)
In recent years Colorado has seen a steady rise in ski resorts playing host to some
epic winter concert events, and winter sports hotspot Vail Ski Resort will be no
exception this season. To commemorate their 50th anniversary this year, the
resort will be celebrating with Vail Snow Daze, a week long festival
culminating in three nights of live music, no doubt aiming to please powder hounds and
concerts enthusiasts alike. Vail has invited some big name guests to the party: The Shins, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Wilco will be the respective headliners on Dec. 13-15. This is a
stroke of luck of those of us who missed either Wilco’s or the Shins’ (or both!) tour
stops at Red Rocks this summer.

Available on Vail’s website, one-day tickets currently range from around $30-40 depending on the night while the 3 Day Concert Pass is going for a reasonable $110. So don’t be a crack-of-nooner and be sure to get on this deal early because, just like fresh powder, it probably won’t last too long.
