Aspen Celebrates Winterskol This Weekend

Aspen’s winter festival dates back to 1951.  Winterskol began as a way for locals to shake the mid-winter doldrums as well as pull in tourists during the post-holiday lull.  There may not be costumed ski races or parades through town these days, but there is plenty to see and do.
