ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals offers savings on Steamboat Springs accommodations, plus the option to purchase a specially priced $99 Springalicious™ four-day ski pass, during the annual end-of-season celebration

It should come as no surprise that a town with “Spring” in its name would celebrate the change of seasons in a big way. From April 7 through April 15, Steamboat Ski Resort in Steamboat Springs, Colo. will host Springalicious™ 2012, a festival that combines free live concerts and colorful family-friendly events with a specially priced Springalicious™ Pass for four days of late-season skiing and riding.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals is offering 40% off lodging for stays of four nights or more, or 30% off a two- or three-night stay, at select Steamboat Springs vacation rentals with their Springalicious™ Lodging and Lift Ticket Deal. This special rate is available on stays for guests arriving on or after Saturday, April 7 and departing by Sunday, April 15, 2012. Reservations must be booked by Thursday, April 5.

ResortQuest guests can also purchase a Springalicious™ 4-Pack Pass for $99 along with their festival lodging. Guests who book by phone can reserve their Steamboat accommodations and their specially priced four-day lift tickets with a single call. Guests who make their lodging reservations online will be contacted by a ResortQuest vacation specialist to book their $99 Springalicious™ Passes.

The Springalicious™ Pass allows the pass holder to ski or ride at Steamboat Ski Resort any four days between April 7 and closing day, April 15, 2012 for just $99. The photo pass is non-transferable, non-refundable and valid only for the pass holder. Purchase of the Springalicious™ Pass is not required to receive ResortQuest’s discounted Springalicious™ lodging rates.

Signature events during Springalicious™ 2012 include free concerts in Gondola Square on April 7 with Keller Williams and a double-header show on April 15 with Toots and the Maytals followed by JJ Grey & Mofro. The 32nd annual Cardboard Classic will take place Saturday, April 14, and the 5th annual Splashdown Pond Skimming Competition on Sunday, April 15. All events will take place at the Steamboat Ski Resort located at 2305 Mt. Werner Circle, Steamboat Springs, Colo.

In the Cardboard Classic, competitors pilot homemade cardboard crafts—constructed of only cardboard, string, glue, water-based paint, duct tape, masking tape and packing tape—in a hilarious race down the Stampede trail at the Base of the Steamboat Ski Area. One hour prior to the race, the crafts will be judged in the Cardboard d’Elegance with awards being presented for Most Creative, Best Individual Craft, Best Reproduction and Judge’s Choice.

In the Splashdown Pond Skimming Competition, daring skiers and riders—many dressed in wacky costumes—attempt to skim across the surface of an icy pond on skis or a snowboard. The Splashdown takes place on the Stampede trail with overall scores awarded based on creativity of costume, distance skimmed, overall impression and crowd response.

The upscale Torian Plum condominium resort, Steamboat’s premier ski-in/ski-out lodging, is conveniently situated next door to the Splashdown Pond Skim event and just 100 yards from the Gondola concert venue. Resort amenities at Torian Plum include a heated outdoor pool, two indoor and four outdoor hot tubs, sauna, fitness center, on-call ski shuttle, bell staff and on-site front desk.
