The snow has been a little skinny lately and around here, that means one thing: Ullr Fire! According to our knowledgeable friends at Wikipedia, Ullr is the Norse god of Winter and the one responsible for bringing us our much beloved snow.
What exactly is an Ullr Fire, you ask? Basically it’s an excuse to have a bonfire, catch up with your friends, and tell stories about all of the sick jumps, hucks, flips, and crashes from last season. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so last night we had a Thanksgiving Ullr Fire. And here’s how you make one:
1. Build a bonfire
2. Throw in some old skis
3. Throw in some adult beverages
4. And we threw in a turkey leg for good measure
The result? A few inches of fresh snow. I would say our work is done here. Or at least it’s a good start. More to come…
Disclaimer: The staff at Incline is in no way encouraging you to start any fires or burn up any perfectly good skis. However, feel free to raise your glass to Ullr next time you’re tipping one back.
