January 13 marks the beginning of Wintersköl, Aspen's annual four-day celebration of skiing, frolicking and revelry in the mountains. Since 1951, Winterskol commemorates the best of winter in Aspen: on-mountain activities, a parade, live music in the streets, special festivities at each and every mountain and, of course, a fireworks extravaganza over Aspen Mountain. For more information and a list of activities, visit: www.aspenchamber.org.
It's been called a lucky date, a lucky time and we're glad you're here in Aspen to celebrate! It was a cold New Year's Eve, the coldest day of the year, but that didn't stop dedicated skiers and snowboarders from braving the hill in search of exceptional ski conditions!
