One of the most talked about Winterkol events is Soupskol. Restaurants from all over the valley concoct and convene in downtown Aspen, serving up samplings of their most flavorful soups - for free. This year, get a taste of what's to come with Soup’s On: A Soupsköl Preview with Chef Clark Church. Join three-time Soupsköl winner Chef Church from Garnish Café for a sampling of Friday’s competition. And then, of course, it's Soupskol itself. Bundle up and bring those empty stomachs!
Aspen's spirited toast to snow, Winterskol, comes to town January 14-17th. This year's theme is Epic Steeps and Decades Deep, with tons of free events for the whole family, 30 events in all!

The morning began with blizzard conditions atop Snowmass Mountain. The weather cleared around 12:30 and the afternoon was fantastic. Three inches of new snow softened up the bumps and made the groomers fantastic!
The holiday rush is clearing out which means less crowds and even shorter lines! Over 90% of the trails are open! Snow is forecasted on and off all week which should make for great skiing and riding all week long.
