Ullr Fest Takes Over
Dust off that old Viking helmet and pay homage to the Norse god of winter himself! The son of Sif and stepson of Thor, Ullr embraced everything that had to do with cold weather. And you can too at this year’s Ullr Fest in Breck.
The Norse God ~ Of Winter
As the old story goes, Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) loved travelling all over the land each winter season. Equipped with his giant skis, he sought after lively game with his trusty bow and welcomed all challengers to a race on the slopes. But he also enjoyed a good party. So as an annual tribute to all his flake-filled glory, Breckenridge pays its respects to all things winter by celebrating his gift of snow each year with this four-day long festival.
A Celebration of Participation
Never A Dull Moment ~ During Ullr Fest
From January 11th-14th, 2017, the 54th Ullr Fest takes place in Breckenridge, Colorado, and there are no shortage of festive events to help you celebrate in style. Witness the elaborate floats as they parade down Main Street. Hop into a mobile hot tub and travel right along with them yourself. Become an Ullympic athlete by trying your hand in a frying pan flinging contest. Grab the whole family for the ski boot relay. Or throw on some gloves to compete in the International Snow Sculpture Championships. Of course, you can always choose to just sit back and relax in the glow of the giant bonfire in the town’s center. Old Christmas trees and skis are always welcomed to help fuel the fire. The truth is, there’s never a dull moment during Ullr Fest.

Festival Fit For a King ~ Or A God
There are plenty of other events on the agenda during Ullr Fest. This is just a taste. Reserve your condo or cabin for this January and take part this festival fit for a king. Or in this case, “Norse god” would probably be more fitting.
