In its 56th year on Thursday, the Ullr Fest was celebrated by at least 12,000 snow-worshippers on Main Street in Breckenridge. The four-day celebration paying homage to Ullr, the Norse god of snow, included unique floats for the parade, polar ice plunge, a massive bonfire and Ullr himself. The world’s longest ski shot record was broken with 1,266 people using 422 skis spanning 2,128.3 feet. See more photos from the event on
