Ullr Fest 2022
Join the local party and show your devotion to the God of Snow - the legendary Ullr, at Ullr Fest 2022!
Who is Ullr?
Ullr has been an infamous character around Breckenridge since Breckenridge Ski Resort was founded in 1961. You’ve probably noticed his 25-foot metal statue on Peak 8 and heard his name around town.
Ullr, the Norse God of Snow, was brought to Breck by the two Norwegian friends who founded the resort. Known for his incredible archery and skiing skills, Ullr would travel the land on skis, hunting with his bow. Every winter, Ullr would cover the earth in snow every winter to protect it from harm. Ullr Fest was born as a celebration of the fresh powder and good winter tidings Ullr brings to Breckenridge each year.
Grab your Viking hat and join us at the 59th annual Ullr Fest, December 8-10, for the Main Street parade, the world’s longest recorded Shotski®, and impressive Ullr Bonfire!
