    Happy anniversary, Vail Mountain in Colorado!

    Vail Mountain in Colorado announced the lineup of quality entertainment for Vail Snow Daze 2012, the resort's annual festival to kick off the winter season.

    Working backwards, the lineup will include headliner concerts from Wilco on December 15; Michael Franti & Spearhead on December 14; and The Shins on December 13. Vail Snow Daze takes place December 10-16, 2012 and is part of Vail's 50th anniversary celebration!

    Founded in 1962, Vail will celebrate its golden anniversary throughout the 2012-2013 winter season and into the summer of 2013 with a series of events, parties, a film documenting the first 50 years, concerts and more. The celebrations will incorporate a 50th anniversary theme to recognize the resort's distinct past, present and future. As part of Vail's big birthday bash, Vail Snow Daze boasts the biggest lineup of entertainment in the event's multi-year history.

    Snow bunnies and snow bears, how awesome does this sound? Who says that vacations NEED to be fun in the sun! Bring the subzero temps!

    As Vail Snow Daze 2012 is part of Vail's 50th anniversary celebration this season, the powers-that-be "wanted to make the event bigger and better than ever before," said Chris Jarnot, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Vail Mountain. "It's our way of commemorating Vail's birthday and saying thank you to guests for 50 amazing years."

    Festival passes and individual concert tickets for all Vail Snow Daze concerts will go on sale to the public at 10AM on Monday, September 17. All Vail Snow Daze concerts will happen in Vail's Ford Park and tickets will be required for all shows.
