Our biggest event of the year is October 7—Prairie Harvest Fest!
Is exploring the winter sights and sounds of Colorado on your New Year’s resolutions list? If so, we have a great lineup of snow-packed (and heated, indoor) activities that are sure to get your adventurous spirit up and going this month.
Visit Aurora describes the exhibit as “Showcasing both Dalí’s challenges and triumphs, the breathtaking production dynamically animates the works of the incomparable artist, providing visitors with the sensation of stepping into the life of Salvador Dalí himself and feeling the redemptive power of his imagination. Displayed over 13,000 square feet, including full coverage, multi-sensory projection gallery featuring spatial audio technology, DALÍ ALIVE explores how the artist continually reinvented himself – his place, his person, his family, and his very human transience – to overcome obstacles.”
While you’re there, be sure to check out the local restaurants and retail options at the Stanley Marketplace. It’s a great place to spend a snowy day in January!
The Stanley Marketplace is located at 2501 Dallas Street, Aurora 80010. For more information about the exhibit, email: info@stanleymarketplace.
Want to get away? Then head over to Aspen and check out the Winter X Games. For 20 years, the world’s best winter athletes have competed for medals and prize money and have delighted crowds with a full display of their athleticism and talent. Athletes compete in 14 disciplines including Men’s and Women’s Ski and Snowboard SuperPipe, SlopeStyle, Big Air, and Knuckle Huck.
After a full day of watching competitions, check out the concerts and festival villages located in Snowmass Village. This year’s lineup includes: Kaskade, Yung Gravy, NIght Tales, MOD SUN, MADDS, and girlfriends. X Games Aspen competitions, music performances, and X Fest are free to the public.

Building sandcastles is one thing, but carving a 20-ton block of snow with nothing but hand tools? We’ll leave that up to the talented artists from around the world that compete each year at the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships. This free event is open to the public, and locals say the best time to go is at night when the sculptures are lit up with multiple lights to accentuate the fine lines and details that make these true works of art. It’s a great day trip, or overnighter if you want to explore the rest of Breckenridge a bit more. To plan your trip, visit the Go Breck website.
We hope this has inspired you to check out what Colorado winters have to offer. Your resolutions are waiting!
