Mountain party of the week: Vail Snow Daze

The party has already started in Vail. But worry not, potential party-goer. Vail Snow Daze --Vail's early-season mountain kick-off party -- still has plenty to offer, including free shows by the Barenaked Ladies, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and the Warren-Miller-movie-staring rock collective Yukon Kornelius.

Yukon Kornelius consists of Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band, Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, Adam Gardner of Guster, and Eric Fawcett of N.E.R.D. Don't miss these guys, the band has only played a handful of gigs since forming in January, 2008 to play a benefit show and film a ski movie.

''Vail Snow Daze's musical line-up is fantastic," said James Deighan of Highline Sports, the company that booked the bands. "These bands are going to absolutely kill it here in Vail. We're thrilled to host them."

Check out the video above of the group filming for last year's Warren Miller movie Children of Winter.

Yukon Kornelius plays Friday night at 7 p.m. at the Dobson Ice Arena. Visit the Vail Snow Daze site to print tickets and to see the rest of the schedule.
