Let It Snow

March 2021 - While Breckenridge, Colorado’s December 2020 Ullr Fest was cancelled due to COVID-19, a collaboration between Breckenridge Grand Vacations and Scottish sculptor Andy Scott gave hope that the fabled Norse god of snow will nevertheless provide the area with a frozen bounty. A 25-ft.-tall, 1-ton sculpture of Ullr was assembled and erected at the base of Peak 8 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort November 11, 2020, a few days before the opening of ski season. Scott constructed a wire frame from his concept sketch and covered it with 1-in. pieces of steel welded together to contour the shape. Scott, who told the Summit Daily newspaper he “sees little segments of steel in his sleep,” said his approach of using thousands of tiny pieces of steel came about slowly while he evolved his style. He credits taking some of his inspiration from American painter Chuck Close, who creates portraits by combining hundreds of smaller painted squares. Locals are looking forward to the 2021 Ullr Fest celebration in hopes of another powder-filled ski season.
