NEDERLAND, Colorado, March 5 (UPI) -- The Pink Socks reaffirmed their dominance Sunday afternoon, winning the coffin races for a third straight year at the Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland, Colorado. An estimated 15,000 people filled the town that normally boasts a population of about 1,400 to celebrate Frozen Dead Guy Days, which refers to Grandpa Bredo Morstoel, whose body has been packed in dry ice in a mountainside shed since 1993. After Morstoel died in Norway at age 89, his son brought his body to Nederland in 1989 in hopes of building a cryonics center. Nederland, Colorado, a picturesque little town about 45 miles northwest of Denver claims more than just quaintness, beauty, and the ruggedness of the Rocky Mountains to draw thousands of visitors.
Morstoel died on November 6, 1989 while at the family’s mountain retreat in Norway and was immediately packed in ice before making the long trip to Los Angeles, California, where he was cryogenically prepped and frozen. Bredo was kept at the Institute, while Trygve searched for a suitable place to store frozen bodies.
While the facility never materialized, for 11 winters now people have turned out in droves to honor a frozen Norwegian they never knew by having some fun in the cold.
Morstoel’s grandson, Trygve Bauge decided that his grandfather should have the opportunity of potential immorality and made the arrangements for his grandfather.
Grandpa Morstoel remained at the California institute until 1993, when his body was packed in dry ice, shipped to Nederland, Colorado, and stored in a garden shed.
