* Two days later, the season was extended for the three-day weekend of April 19-21 due to abundant amounts of new snow. (Five feet in four days!)
Not sure what kind of party will happen on Sunday 21st (Vail’s “Second Closing Day of 2013”), but this would be hard to re-create. There is nothing like Closing Day at Vail: colorful, noisy, wild and unpredictable. Full of customs, costumes, vittles and bevies, and plenty of tradition. Sweet and bitter, happy and sad. But always memorable.

Thanks to my new chairlift friend, Dannee M., who served admirably as my impromptu volunteer executive producer and photography assistant for the day. Glad you made it to the party, Dannee. You sure know how to rile up a crowd.
That’s a wrap for Vail’s 50th season of operation.
The lifts have halted.
“Thanks for the great photos, folks!”
