The winter ski season has been off to a great start and it’s clear Ullr, the god of winter, has been in a very, very good mood. Afterall, he’s delivered more than 13 feet of snow so far this season. Hopefully, you can help us keep Ullr happy by joining us to thank him for all this snow and the wonderful winter wonderland we’ve all been so fortunate to enjoy. This year marks 55 years of Ullr Fest, January 9-12, 2019. Ullr celebrations are all about fun and community. So grab your finest Viking Hat and get ready to have some fun, Ullr style.
