Global Freezing: WinterSkol in Aspen.

Winterskol: Having Fun since 1951.Dude, I like it cold... but this is ridiculous.   It's been sub-zero atop Aspen Mountain and in town for three days straight. WinterSkol and beautiful sunny Colorado skies could not off-set the fact that it's freezing. A. Party is not complaining...I'm "all in for GLOBAL FREEZING".   Actually the cold invigorates me. I'm happy its frigid.  I'm a HUGE fan of Winter.  Lack of freshies has made me crazy...so I sort of like getting a brain-freeze, while flying down the super-duper hard packed slopes of Ajax.  Mid January in Aspen means WINTERSKOL our annual celebration of Winter.  "Getting it done since 1951"  Aspen's Winterskol began as a ploy to attract more tourists to Aspen during the dog days ... the post-holiday lull... and it's always freezing.  That fierce, penetrating cold that only people who love Winter like. Canine Fashion Show.

WinterSkol has evolved into a HUGE weekend, complete with SoupSkol, a canine fashion show, spa treatments, yoga, concerts, ski races free beer and a full on swag fest thanks to Women's Health and Men's Health Magazines.  As always the "freebie tent" at the base of Ajax is FREE & Open to the public.  Grab a bag full of swag...why not?  Food, beer, air hockey, models, tons of free stuff etc..etc.    The dogs came out in the sub zero temps for the annual canine fashion show.  Free hot dogs and kettle corn and about 40 dogs dressed to impress greeted the crowds. Always a  blast.

Everybody love SoupSkol. Click 4 pix.SoupSkol... is always an extremely popular event. It was extra special this year due to the Global Freezing. Honestly, when its less than  zero degrees...there's nothing better than 50 sample sized cups of fresh, steaming hot soup.  This year's Winner:The SQUARE GROUPER is not even open yet.  My boyiee Michael Goldman (co-owner) will be debuting Square Grouper this spring on restaurant row in Aspen.  Congratulations to Square Grouper, wininng SoupSkol a tremendous accomplishment.  Can't wait until spring.

The Spazmatics never disappoint at Belly Up, Aspen.  The nerd-rock cover band plays all the hits from the 80's.  Two hours of solid gold.  The ladies liked it.  Free Beer is always appreciated in Aspen.  Many thanks to Bud & Bud Light.

Next up:  Gay Ski Week. Oh yeah...i'm up for the cover (see photo below).  Aspen...it's a trip that never end's.

Great photos from a fun weekend. Oh yes, it was cold....real cold for days! Even the soups from Soupskol had trouble staying warm, except for the ones from which my tongue is still burnt. Guess I should've attended the Canine Fashion Show...LOL....maybe it was just too darn cold for yours truly, our official town fashionista to come out from her warm house! Good coverage, Andrew, as usual! See you around the next round of fashion in town! Gio
