Slogan Contest 

In honor of the World Cup finals returning to Aspen in March of 2017, the Wintersköl committee is looking back upon the heritage of skiing in our mountain community. The early 1950’s proved to be a time of great beginnings in Aspen as two significant celebrations of winter and its accompanying Nordic lifestyle originated. In 1950, Aspen hosted its first FIS World Championship welcoming ski racers from around the globe. Then in 1951, Jack DePagter created Wintersköl, Aspen’s annual ‘toast to winter.’

The ski slopes of Aspen’s four surrounding mountains beckon winter-sports enthusiasts. Additionally, our community embraces and thrives upon a strong culture of winter athletics. While developing submissions for the 2017 slogan contest, be creative and highlight the 66th Wintersköl Celebration with a nod to the extensive history of skiing, love of winter sports, and the longstanding tradition of Wintersköl in Aspen. 

Contest Rules:

  • Be creative and highlight Aspen's rich history of skiing & love of winter sports
  • Slogan must be a 1 to 5-word phrase to fit on a 3" button
  • Limit of 5 entries per person
  • Slogan entries due by Friday, October 7th-by 5 pm

The winner will receive (1) pass* to the 2017 FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen! 
(*Associate Pass valid for all Grand Tastings; Seminars on a space available basis only)

All slogan contest submissions must be emailed to Brittany Zanin, [email protected]
