Winterskol 2018

Wintersculpt is underway on the Aspen pedestrian mall. It’s a Winterskol tradition, where teams carve a snow sculpture in 48 hours. Competitors use spades, shovels and chainsaws. Getting the snow ready for carving takes different equipment: Dump trucks, front loaders and a lot of elbow grease from the city’s Parks and Rec department.

The 67th Winterskol celebration took place last week. While a lack of snow caused some events to be canceled, Winterfest’s Canine Fashion Show was not. About 50 dogs of all kinds dressed up for an afternoon on the town Saturday. Claire Woodcock went to Wagner Park and met some of the contestants.
