Secret Stash – April’s Jam Packed With Live Music In The Mountains

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, April 6th, 2011 at 8:55pm.

It’s hard to believe this epic snow year is winding down and coming to a close. We hope you’re able to get out there and make a few more turns before the end of the season. It doesn’t get much better than a warm spring bluebird ski day in the mountains. In honor of an incredible, snowy ski season, Summit County ski resorts know how to throw the best end-of-year party with lots of live (and mostly FREE) music. Check out some of the music on tap in April at our local ski resorts below.
