In fall of this year, 10 Mile Music Hall will open in Frisco, Colorado, making it the largest music venue in Summit County, which is home to some of Colorado’s favorite ski resorts like Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, and Arapahoe Basin. Already, 10 Mile Music Hall is carving out a niche as a destination concert venue. Today, 10 Mile Music Hall has announced a special “10 High Ride: Ski And Music Vacation For Deadheads”, which will span from March 27th to March 30th, 2019.
10 Mile Ride will be part of the venue’s inaugural “Slopes & Sounds Series”, which features a pass for skiing at Copper Mountain plus entrance to a concert on the same all-inclusive ticket. For the upcoming Deadhead ski vacation, 10 Mile Music Hall will host Steve Kimock & Friends, Melvin Seals & JGB, Everyone’s Dead featuring Matt Butler, Ghost Light, and Coral Creek.
As Todd Altschuler of 10 Mile Music Hall explained, “Being located in a ski town provides us a unique opportunity to offer music fans that also enjoy skiing and snowboarding a great vacation option this coming winter.” Referencing the dates of the upcoming ski vacation, he added, “I can’t think of a better way to enjoy spring skiing than spending a little time on the mountain with a few hundred Deadheads.”
Tickets for the upcoming Grateful Dead-themed ski trip will feature four nights of concerts in addition to a three-day Copper Mountain ski pass, all for a flat fee of $359. As a press release notes, “Lift tickets at Copper are more than $120 a day so anyone that’s planning a ski vacation to Colorado will get their music fix for free. A 4-night music only pass for people that already have a ski pass or that don’t ski at all is available for $149.”
Furthermore, the venue will also be offering a very limited number of VIP passes for $499, which include afternoon concerts on 10 Mile’s rooftop deck by DeadPhish Orchestra and Uptown Toodeloo String Band, early entry into the nighttime concerts, a limited-edition signed and numbered poster with artwork by Nathaniel Deas, and various other perks.
Tickets for the inaugural 10 Mile Ride go on-sale this Thursday, August 23rd, at 9 am (MDT) here.
