Kicking off in March, Dirtbag Day at Big Sky Resort in Montana may be the epitome of the spring break event. Voted one of the world’s top 10 winter festivals by MSN Travel, the event was started in 1979 as a fundraiser for Big Sky’s ski patrol. The Dirtbag Ball and Dirtbag Day celebrations are some of the area’s most historic events, with costumes, a parade and a Powder 8’s contest. The patrol even crowns a new King and Queen of the Dirtbags—hardcore skiers and riders who hit the bars at night in the height of dirtbag fashion. Shennanigans usually follow shortly after.
