Wintersköl, Aspen’s annual “toast to winter,” dates back to a quiet January in 1951 when locals chose to commemorate Aspen's distinctive mountain way of life with a diverse weekend of events. The four-day festival showcases on-mountain activities, snow sculptures, a soup contest, (NEW!) a craft beer festival, a torchlight descent and fireworks on Aspen Mountain plus much more.
Each year, Wintersköl choses a unique slogan reflecting the theme and spirit of the celebration. “Uniting Ski Bums and Bunnies” represents a coming together of diverse members of the community to celebrate our winter lifestyle. Thank you and congratulations to Johnny Klein for submitting this year's winning slogan, "Uniting Ski Bums and Bunnies (since 1951)."
