Schneetag Planned for Aspen Highlands’ Closing Day

The annual event will take place April 12; Hilarious spectacle to ensue

With end of the winter season nearing, many resorts are gearing up for closing day celebrations. Some closing days are tamer than others, but Aspen Highlands is notorious for playing host to one of the most raucous events of all time. This year’s event is happening, April 12, 2015. Shreds of all shapes and sizes are sure to  dress up in ultra wild gear, and imbibe in a day that’s all about celebrating the season that was.

This year, Highlands’ Closing promises to be a supreme hootenanny as Schneetag will be held during the celebration. The annual event normally takes place at Aspen/Snowmass, but changed venues this year for the ultimate closing party.

So just what is Schneetag? Aspen/Snowmass breaks it down for us:

Schneetag: The annual closing day event held at Highlands this year, that puts the stereotypical ski area spring pond skim to shame. Watch as wildly dressed participants race down the mountain in a craft of their own design and attempt to cross the pond at the bottom of the slope. You may have seen a lot of crazy spring skiing shenanigans in your day, but we doubt you’ve ever seen anything quite like Schneetag in Aspen.
