Winterskol 2012 Greets the New Year

Aspen's most heralded local celebration of winter - and winter sunshine! - returns to the street January 12-15, 2012. In January, 1951, Aspenites created Winterskol, to celebrate Aspen's Nordic outlook and lifestyle. This year, the tradition continues. We welcome back favorite events like Soupskol, free soup from area chefs; the Canine Fashion Show; and, of course, the Winterskulpt competition, highlighting ice statues and carvings from valley artists.

Mark your calendars and visit: for complete details!
