The Winter God of Breckenridge

By Linda Tancs

In Norse mythology, Ullr (stepson of Thor, the god of thunder) is the winter god.  He’s honored each year in Breckenridge, Colorado at the Ullr Fest.  Now in its 50th year, this year’s event promises the usual skiers and snowboarders adorned with hats sporting Viking horns, “Ullympic” competitors, a parade, and floats with ski jumps.  Join them now until 12 January.
