Starting at the roots of post-mining day Breckenridge, Ullr Fest has been in practice for over 55 years to honor the Norse God of Snow. Whether you check the box of the over 21 crowd or have a gaggle of children, Ullr Fest provides snow-infused parties and activities for all ages.
Top Picks for Ullr 2019
Break the world’s longest shot ski record at Ullr Shot Ski
Hosted by Breckenridge Distillery, the masses with gather down Breckenridge’s lengthy Main Street in hopes of, yet again, breaking the current World Record for the longest Shot Ski. $10 to help Breck nab the record and of course you must be 21 to enter.
Ullr Parade & Bonfire
Thursday, 4:30pm - 7pm
In our opinion, the Ullr Parade is easily the highlight of the entire four days of festivities. Everyone from local businesses, groups of friends, to organizations conjure up their best effort to honor Ullr in hopes of bringing in plentiful snow and snagging the top prize. Directly following the parade, the annual massive bonfire is sparked in the South Gondola Parking Lot. Free to all and live entertainment is provided by Red Bull.
Channel your inner Viking, horned helmet, fur, and all, and head to town to help all of Breckenridge get rewarded with the snowiest season ever!
