It’s a conundrum: You’re going to sell the home you’ve lived in for a long time, and you want to get the best price possible. On the other hand, you’re not excited about spending a lot of money to fix up a house you’re leaving.

In Norse mythology, the god Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) is associated with skis and the bow, and is said to be the handsome son of goddess Sif and stepson of her husband, the brawny thunder god, Thor. An expert skater, skier and hunter, Ullr glides around the world covering the land with snow. For those of us who love winter in the mountains pray to him for fresh powder and abundantly white winters. To celebrate his wonderful gift to us, Breckenridge hosts an annual town-wide party; Ullr Fest!

Celebrating its 57th year, Ullr Fest takes place December 11 through 15, 2019. The Town of Breckenridge welcomes snow lovers of all ages to the party, and the streets fill with revelers, many adorned in horned Viking helmets.
