Vilar Performing Arts Center, Beaver Creek

The VPAC presents the Randy Rogers Band. Randy Rogers Band is a Texas based country band fueled by a shared passion for making great music and a strong commitment to each other, making music that “sounds like country, but not our grandad’s county,” according to Rogers. The Randy Rogers Band has been together for more than 17 years, touring the country with headliners like Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, and collaborating with country favorites like Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss and Jamey Johnson.
Nothing can compare to the feeling and power of a live performance. The arts transcend generations, they bring communities together and unite us all. That is why the VPAC has kept the music going and will continue to present in-person performances with COVID secure measures.  With many musicians and fans bursting for live settings, this summer will be the time to hear original music. Tickets are available at the VPAC box office (970-845-8497;). The VPAC is located under the ice rink in Beaver Creek Village (68 Avondale Lane, Beaver Creek, Colorado). 5 & 8PM

Summer Ramble, Steamboat Springs
Due to the Cameron Peak fire, we’ll be starting and stopping in Walden CO, our historical second night stop.
 But don’t worry…we’re still stopping in Steamboat Springs. The new route uses the best of past Rambles, and just as challenging and tough: long days, heat, climbs, elevation. Leaving Walden and heading north, we’ll revisit the “OG” route, before looping back towards Independence Mountain with its expansive North Park views. From there into the Medicine Bow NF, around the Zirkel Wilderness for a day, and then to Steamboat Springs for a third night camp. Our last day is up and over Buffalo Pass back to Walden. Now 258 miles and 23K of climbing over four days, if you are looking for a challenge, this is it. But with big challenged come big rewards. It’ll be a ride you’ll talk about for a long time.
NOW A FOUR DAY ADVENTURE. The original Ramble, the Steamboat Ramble travels through the Roosevelt, Medicine Bow, and Routt National Forests. On the route, we’ll travel through stunning landscapes, grand vistas, and desolate backdrops.
The ride starts and ends in Walden CO. 258 miles, 23,270 ft of climbing. 
On the Ramble you get:
4 days of amazing riding in Colorado. Approximate daily mileage: 65/65/70/60.

Vilar Performing Arts Center, Beaver Creek

The VPAC presents Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. Fifteen-time Grammy Award-winner Ricky Skaggs’ career is easily among the most significant in recent country music history. If Skaggs’ burgeoning trophy case full of awards wasn’t already enough evidence of that fact, consider that legendary guitarist Chet Atkins once credited Skaggs with “single-handedly saving country music.” His life’s path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music.
Nothing can compare to the feeling and power of a live performance. The arts transcend generations, they bring communities together and unite us all.

Steamboat  Lake Triathlon, Steamboat Springs
After last summer this event instantly became a personal favorite for our staff, volunteers, and athletes – come find out why! We couldn’t be more excited about this course, this lake, and the overall experience. The swim starts out in the surprisingly warm waters of Steamboat Lake (74 degrees average race temp), then athletes transition to the most scenic bike course you’ll ever find. You’re more likely to see a herd of cattle crossing the road than be passed by a vehicle! After a ride through the rolling country-side athletes will transition to a 3.5 mile run course that’s 50% on road, and 50% on the dirt trails that hug the lakeside. When we tell athletes you’re running through wild flower meadows, we’re not exaggerating.  
Pack the camping gear and make a weekend getaway for your all your friends and family!  This year we’re also offering a duathlon, aquabike, and stand-up paddle-board division!

Crested Butte Arts Festival, Crested Butte
Join us for a small, socially distant, and re-imagined Crested Butte Arts Festival. This year’s event will happen in a beautiful new location to keep our artists and patrons safe. The details of this summer’s event depend in large part on local Covid-related protocols which are not fully defined yet, but we are optimistic that we will have an in-person festival!
Our 2021 event will feel a bit different this year, but the beauty of Crested Butte will still serve as a natural gallery for our artists to showcase their exceptional works.
In order to effectively adhere to safety protocols from state and local authorities, the Crested Butte Arts Festival has had to change its beloved downtown location for 2021. Luckily, our new location is outdoors on 10 acres at the Crested Butte Community School. This is only a few short blocks from our historic downtown location and still offers sweeping views of the Crested Butte landscape.
