Ullr Fest

When: Jan. 9-15 2012

As of this writing, onthesnow.com tells a pretty sad Breckenridge story: just 45 percent of terrain open, to go along with 15 of 31 ski lifts. Plus, no snow in the weekend forecast. Cue the God of Thunder! Better yet, try his stepson. That'd be Ullr, the winter god of Norse mythology, who is celebrated Jan. 8 through 14 during Breck's 49th annual Ullr Fest (gobreck.com). Today's free events include crowning of an Ullr king and queen, plus a bonfire, while the rest of the week features the Ullympics, a dating game, parade and more. Bring your Viking helmet, your faith in the gods, and a certain fearlessness. — Kirk Woundy
