2014 WINTERSKÖL DATES ANNOUNCED:
JANUARY 9-12, 2014
HISTORY OF WINTERSKÖL
Wintersköl, Aspen's annual "toast to winter," dates back to a quiet January in 1951. Jack DePagter, previous owner of the Holland House, created Wintersköl. In 1949 Jack began bartending at the Hotel Jerome. Noticing a lull in business during the 3 weeks after Christmas when the ski lifts closed, Jack decided that there must be something he and his friends could do to bring people into Aspen. His idea: a winter carnival to celebrate Aspen's unique Nordic lifestyle, like those at European ski resorts. With that idea...Wintersköl was born! Today, the four day celebration features on-mountain activities, Soupsköl, the Canine Fashion Show, winterfest, fireworks, and much more.

    HI - I don't know how to e-mail Darlene directly so my apologies for sending this to the whole group.
    Darlene- I have come down with a bad cold and am not going to make it tomorrow. I wanted you to know before you drive all the way over from Gypsum!!! Especially with all the snow that is falling today. You are welcome to contact me at the e-mail I left below.
    I'm so sorry for this but 'stuff' is going around. The flu has really hit the area hard.
    Hope you have fun!!

    Hi - Sorry for the late reply to this thread!!!

    If anyone is interested in still trying to find an inexpensive place to stay, please call[masked]-0897. It's Aspen Central Reservations and they have access to all the hotels in Aspen. The Mountain Chalet Hotel in Aspen is very affordable and is smack in the middle of town. They are dog friendly although they have a pet fee. There is one hotel in Basalt which is about 25 minutes from Aspen and a few hotels in Carbondale and Glenwood Springs. They would be much, much cheaper than Aspen. hope that helps!

I need to put something together asap! Do you want to coordinate or should I do something independent? thanks, see you Saturday! Nancy

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
