Ullr Fest in Breckenridge, Colorado

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 at 9:41am.

Ullr, Ullr, Ullr!

It’s that time of year again where Ullr (pronounced Ooh-ler), the mythical Norse god of Winter, heads to Breckenridge, Colorado and blesses us with with the finest fluffy white snow in the world. To help repay Ullr for his gift of snow (we hope he brings us lots more in 2010), the local Breckenridge community gathers together with a grand week-long winter festival like no other, January 10-16, 2010.

You won’t want to miss the unbelievable energy this event brings to Main Street and beyond. There’s something for everyone to enjoy: live entertainment, a bar series, a Nordic event, ice skating, the Ullympics and the always memorable and sometimes wild, Ullr Parade.

This year, our very own – Rob Neyland and his wife Debbie – have been honored as Ullr King and Queen. You’ll see them out and about in Breckenridge throughout the week as they help celebrate all things Ullr. Join us for the fun this festival brings and let’s all hope that Ullr continues to bring us more and more snowfall this winter!
