Time for Wintersköl fun

As detailed in today’s Aspen Times, the next four days promise to be busy with fun-filled events. Yes, once again everyone in the valley will get to enjoy our annual winter festival, Wintersköl.

The focus this year is a celebration of our four ski areas, though the festival has always moved from mountain to mountain as the party progresses.

There will be plenty of the old favorites, such as the parade, canine fashion show and the best winter fireworks show to be found anywhere. But there will also be plenty of new events to enjoy this year, such as a soup cook-off and “Swissbob” races.

We’d simply like to take this opportunity to urge everyone to get out and enjoy the festivities. The weather is expected to be perfect, and the sheer variety of events means there will be something everyone can enjoy.

Remember, though visitors to town will enjoy the events, this truly is “our” festival. This is the chance for residents to relax and have fun after the hectic holidays and before the town moves into high gear again next week with Gay Ski Week, the X Games and much more. It’s there for everyone to enjoy, so take advantage of it.

And the Times would also like to once again thank the Aspen Chamber Resort Association for organizing Wintersköl each year and Ink! for generously offering to support it financially.
