Head to Aspen during Winterskol (January 13th -16th), and you can watch hunky actor Antonio Banderas lead the Torchlight Descent down Aspen Mountain on Saturday, along with the children of the Aspen Buddy Program and the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club. He’ll lead the way down the mountain, then kick off a huge fireworks extravaganza during the 54th celebration of winter in Aspen. Other Winterskol events include snow sculpture competitions for adults and kids, downhill races, parades, ice skating, concerts, eating contests, cook-offs, dog shows, and the Colorado Restaurant Association’s “Taste of Winterskol.” Check out the Aspen Chamber of Commerce web site for the full, jam-packed schedule, and check here for lodging packages.
