Ullr Fest 2016 | Breckenridge, Colorado

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, January 6th, 2016 at 8:40pm.

Ullr Fest

Love the snow and celebrating Ullr, the norse god? (Ok, forget what you are celebrating, it is just a good time). Grab your Viking horns and come party in Breckenridge.   The Town of Breckenridge is giddy with leftover holiday cheer, so join us January 13-16th, 2016 for the traditional Ullr Fest.  The legend has been passed down, generation to generation since the 60's by the ski-town hippies.  We know that we are crazy to be living at 9,600 feet above sea level, where oxygen is a commodity and the snow piles so high that it can reach the snow sliding from the roof.  This week, you'll find us carrying our mugs and flasks, to warm our bones.  Experience the crowning of the Ullr king and queen, skating parties, ridiculous games to play  and  a large bonfire. The parade on Thursday, is as unique as it is impressive. You don't want to miss it!   In its 53rd year, Breckenridge invites all those that love the snow to come to the party.  Breckenridge receives some of the finest powder in the Rocky Mountain region, so this week is completely  dedicated to honoring and saying thank you to Ullr.  It is a week full of free and fun events, including the Ullympics, Ullr bonfire and the Ullr parade.
