Winterskol

Jan.14-17/ ASPEN – 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. Today the four-day celebration features on-mountain activities, live music, a canine fashion show, WinterFest, fireworks and much more.
