ULLR FEST 2016
The Ullr Fest will celebrate 53 years this Jan. 13-16, 2016. Snow lovers of all ages are invited to descend upon Breckenridge and join in the party. Don’t be surprised by the sight of horned Viking hats adorning the heads of skiers and snowboarders, or Ullympic competitors flinging frying pans for prizes. More than 12,000 Ullr enthusiasts will fill the streets for the Ullr Parade and crazy float participants skiing off jumps on Main Street or gliding along town in a hot tub. Join us to rejoice with Ullr himself. Ullr is always ready for a good party. In Norse mythology Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) was the winter god. The son of Sif and the stepson of Thor, the “God of Thunder.” Ullr loved the cold, and delighted in traveling over the country on his skis or skates. He also delighted in the chase, and pursued his game through the Northern Forests. Come out and celebrate the snow.
