Wintersköl makes a splash

The “Ski Splash” was a wild event featuring somewhat crazed acrobatic skiers leaping into a Snowmass Village heated swimming pool off of Fanny Hill. Always a crowd favorite, the Splash was one of the many zany events in Aspen’s annual Wintersköl carnival in January 1978. Photograph by Jim Kahnweiler.
