Let’s Sing Taylor

If you didn’t get tickets for Taylor Swift’s concert, you can get the next best thing: Let’s Sing Taylor — A Live Band Experience invites fans of the pop icon to come together and celebrate the music from her various albums.

This Taylor Swift tribute show has packed theaters across the nation and provides a place for Swifties to unite and sing along note for note and song for song. It may not be the real thing, but all of the camaraderie that comes along with a Taylor Swift show can be replicated here.

Pick your outfit to match your favorite Taylor Swift era, bring along the friendship bracelets and be prepared for a high energy show. Seats are $39.50 but you may not be sitting much at all during the performance. The best “seat” in the house may be the orchestra pit (tickets are $49.50) where you can sway to the music the entire time. At press time there was limited availability for tickets but check the website at or call the box office for more information at 970-845-TIXS (8497). Showtime is 7 p.m. on Friday.

Spring productions are in full swing at area schools and Vail Mountain School’s Theater Department is presenting Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Thursday through Saturday at the school’s Peter Abuisi Theater at 6:30 p.m.

“We choose ‘Beauty and the Beast’ for several reasons,” said Christi Howell, director of the Vail Mountain School Theatre Department. “First, the students at Vail Mountain School expressed their passion to put on a Disney show. We decided on this particular musical due to the fact that after this year, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will not be available for license.”

Come see characters like Belle, Beast, Gaston, Lumière and Mrs. Potts on the stage that features multiple ages of the student body at Vail Mountain School.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at with prices set at $10 for students and $15 for adults.

Closing Weekend at Beaver Creek

Larkspur Express Lift sits closed for the season in Beaver Creek. The resort closed the west side from Grouse to Arrowhead a week before the whole resort closes Sunday, April 14.

It’s hard to believe it’s already time to wrap up Beaver Creek’s 43rd season but Sunday marks the resort’s Closing Day. Arrowhead and Bachelor Gulch already closed down last Sunday, and much of the western hillside trails in Larkspur Bowl (#11), Strawberry Park (#12), The Landing lifts and the Westin Gondola (#7) have closed for the season as well. In addition to Haymeadow Gondola (#1) and Centennial Express (# 6) You can still take laps in Rose Bowl, enjoy the upper green runs off of Cinch Express (#8) and Red Buffalo (#5) and take in the steeps off of Birds of Prey Express (#9) and grab a bite to eat at Talons Restaurant. Spruce Saddle will be open as well as the Ice Cream Parlour.

Remember that during the springtime the conditions can change daily. Temperatures, new snow and visibility all play a role. If we get those really warm days, the snow may become slushy and “grippy” so wait for it to soften up a bit before you head out and end early if the slush becomes too much to handle. You can always download on Gondola One (#1) or the Eagle Bahn Gondola (#19). Make sure your equipment is tuned up and have a good spring wax on the bases of your skis and snowboards. Summer is just around the corner, so stay healthy for it!
