Arts & Culture

When Chicago businessman Walter Paepcke first visited Aspen, Colorado in 1945 he envisioned it as an ideal gathering place for thinkers, leaders, artists, and musicians from all over the world to step away from their daily routines and reflect on the underlying values of society and culture. He dreamed of transforming the town into a center for dialogue, a place for “lifting us out of our usual selves”.

What has always set Aspen apart from our other ski towns are the cultural organizations in our valley that bring us world premiere talent. With the Aspen Institute, the Aspen Music Festival & School, Aspen Film, Aspen Santa Fè Ballet and The Wheeler Opera House, amongst others, the best days are the ones where we play outside and then head over to one of our cultural institutions to elevate our minds.
