The Aspen Historical Society kicks off the Winterskol weekend with Aspen History 101 and a Mad Hatter’s Ball. The no-credit, fun college of the Rockies, also known as the Aspen State Teachers College, hosts a crash course in local lore, featuring actors, actresses, song, dance and even Klaus Obermeyer. All attendees to AH101 will receive a Student ID, good for beer discounts at the ball.
Afterward, put on your craziest hat/contraption for the Mad Hatter’s Ball. Reviving the beloved Aspen/Snowmass tradition will be live music. An award for “Best Hat” will be chosen by the Winterskol King and Queen, and the winner receives two passes to Aspen Laff Fest. Presented by Aspen Historical Society, ACRA and Wheeler Opera House
