Aspen's 2017 WINTERSKÖL
KING & QUEEN:
Pat callahan & Julie lampton
2017 Wintersköl Queen Julie Lampton and King Pat Callahan are both charismatic and uplifting spirits who are well-known in the Aspen community. Julie is a dynamic woman who completely devotes her time to volunteering for local organizations such as the Aspen Institute, Aspen Film, Aspen Music Festival and School, Chris Klug Foundation, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, Shining Stars, Wheeler Opera House, among many others. Not only does she volunteer her time for numerous causes, she invests herself in the people she meets in the multiple groups with which she participates.
An Aspen native, Pat’s integral role as Chief of Course in the Aspen Winternational (which includes the 2017 World Cup Finals), and his avid involvement with the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club make him the perfect fit as this year’s King. An intrinsic part of this town’s ski racing heritage, Pat has been honored with the Halstead Award, the USSA’s prestigious Coach of the Year award, and has served on several committees with USSA.
