To get a great ski season, sometimes a higher power has to be appeased.
Saturday, during Ullrfest, which is named after the Norse god of skiing, participants will be working to ensure lots of snow appears on the Pajarito slopes.
Thad Hahn, volunteer organizer, described Ullrfest as a traditional beginning of the ski season party.
“You hope to have a good ski season ee with lots of white stuff,” he said. “It’s akin to doing a snow dance.”
