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.
2016 Wintersköl King & Queen
Tom and jody cardamone
The 2016 Wintersköl King and Queen, Tom and Jody Cardamone have been instrumental in creating the strong positive environmental ethic that characterizes the Aspen community today.
They are best known for their work with Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES). Tom Cardamone joined his wife Jody (ACES’ first Director) as Co-Director in 1975, and later became ACES’ Executive Director in 1982, a position he held until 2012 when he became President and Chief Ecologist.
Among other accomplishments at ACES, Tom and Jody developed an education program in partnership with local schools and have supported education for generations of local children.
Tom retains a consulting relationship with ACES and is currently Executive Director of Snowmass Discovery, a start-up non-profit dedicated to telling the story of Colorado's most remarkable fossil discovery in a way which celebrates this ancient treasure from the ice age and inspires stewardship of the future.
