​Aspen's arts and culture scene rivals that of some major cities and is certainly at the top of the list for Colorado arts and culture destinations. Aspen has a long history of fostering the arts. For decades, a highly engaged population with a diverse set of interests and opinions has helped foster a community that loves a good discussion. In recent years, even Snowmass Village has become a hotbed for arts patrons and culture vultures, too.
The busy summer season of fine arts, ballet, theater, film, live music and speakers series continue right into the winter, with some programming and venue changes. And don't forget the uniquely winter offerings, too, like touring a historic ghost town on snowshoe, or screening contenders for the "Best Picture" Oscars with some of the Academy's voting members.

Below is your comprehensive guide to arts and culture in Aspen Snowmass this winter season.
