Theme: The slogan for this year’s Wintersköl™ festival is “Together, We Move Mountains”. Wintersköl 2018 embraces the idea of being “Better Together,” a tribute to resort and community. Inspired by the Aspen Ski Company’s new marketing campaign “The Aspen Way,” sculptures must reflect upon and promote what Aspen values, principles, and ideas bring people together.
