Aspen Wintersköl 2017

Wintersköl, Aspen’s annual “toast to winter,” dates back to a quiet January in 1951 when local Aspenites decided to celebrate Aspen’s unique Nordic lifestyle with an eclectic weekend of festivities. The four day celebration features: Soupsköl soup cook-off, a Canine Fashion Show, WinterFest, snow sculptures, the Fat Cycle Challenge fat bike race, fireworks, and much more!
